Students: Complete Workday Inbox items now - help us support you in an emergency

by Nancy Chan -


When students experience a crisis during their time at CCA, staff are here to offer support. Please help us help you by reviewing your information and confirming your personal and emergency contact information is up-to-date.

Since some students' information changes during their time at CCA, we are asking all students to confirm their information is accurate each semester.

Continuing students (those who started at CCA before fall 2021):

  • Please check your Workday Inbox for the following tasks:
    • Update My Primary Home Address
    • Update My Personal Information
    • Update My Emergency Contacts
  • Submit each task using the buttons within your Workday inbox tasks.
  • Troubleshooting tips: 
    • For "Update My Emergency Contacts", add "Emergency Contact" to the "Relationship Type" field -- this will resolve a common error message.
    • Check out "Help Us Support You in an Emergency", including the brief step-by-step video, for details about how to resolve errors & submit the tasks!

New Students for Fall 2021:

Thank you for keeping your information updated, so we can support you if an emergency arises.

All Users: Chrome or Firefox browsers recommended for Moodle courses

Due to various problems related to access and functionality with Moodle, Panopto, or VoiceThread, we do not recommend Safari when accessing and interacting with these platforms.

We recommend using Firefox or Chrome for the best results.

If you find that you are still having log-in issues or errors with Firefox or Chrome, third-party cookies are often required with these platforms in order to validate your login.

Faculty: Import / Copy content from previous courses or Common Elements!

by Nancy Chan -

Faculty, did you know you could use content from previous courses for your new semester?

Moodle makes it easy to import content from your previous courses and/or any courses with which you have Instructor or Export-Only Instructor roles.

Check out our Portal documentation on Importing Course Content for instructions on how to import a whole class or just one or two activities via our Sharing Cart plugin.

All faculty also have access to our Common Elements Moodle course, a repository of resources created and curated by CCA Libraries, the LRC, and Academic Affairs. There are many items that can be imported into your Moodle course, such as a Midterm class survey, citation guides, and simple activities and instructions, such as submitting a Panopto video assignment.

As always, if you have any questions, suggestions, or feedback, please contact us at Help Desk.
