If you have questions about alumni online services, please contact the alumni relations team at 919.660.7709 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit the alumni web site at www.fuqua.duke.edu/alumni
- How long will I have access to Sakai?
While your access to Sakai will last for 1 year from graduation, it is up to the individual professors on how long they will leave the content for their classes up. it is our recommendation to download all the files that you wish to retain immediately to avoid any problems should the professors decide to pull their content down over the summer.
- How do I download my course files?
After logging into Sakai, click on the Resources link for the course. Select Upload-Download Multiple Resourse and follow the instructions for your computer platform.
6) Newsgroup & Discussion Spaces
- How long will our class newsgroups be available?
The platform discussion boards used by students in the executive MBA programs are kept online and made available to students for six months after their class graduation date. Once this six-month period elapses, the class discussion groups are taken offline and archived as part of ongoing maintenance to the Fuqua newsgroups.
- How will I keep in touch after the news groups go away?
Make sure to join the Fuqua Alumni LinkedIn Group.
7) Box Storage
- What happens to my Box storage when I leave Duke?
Students will be able to keep their Box account upon graduation. The account will be transitioned to a personal Box account and will keep the allotted 50 GB of storage space. Faculty and staff accounts will expire immediately upon leaving Duke employment.
8) Team Tools
- How long will we be able to communicate through Team Tools?
Graduating students will retain access to Team Tools until August 31, 2016. Continuing students will see no change in their Team Tools access and will have to do nothing to retain access to their current Teams.
- How can we transfer ownership of a Team on Team Tools to a continuing Fuqua student?
Current team "owners" may transfer ownership to another team member through the edit feature in team tools. Select the link to "Adjust add/delete privileges". Select the team member to whom ownership will be transferred and then save your changes. Team ownership transfers should be completed by July 31, 2016.
9) Ford Library Databases
- How long will I have access to the Library databases after I graduate?
- Can I access any library databases as an alumni?
The Ford Library offers select databases to alumni on an ongoing basis. You will use the same login and password you used as a student to access both job and company research resources and library databases. If you’re local, you may enjoy alumni borrowing privileges at many Duke libraries, including the Ford Library.
Access to Library databases will expire approximately 5 to 10 days following graduation. Unfortunately, vendor license agreements do not allow the library to extend access to databases after graduation
10) Software Usage After Graduation
- Which software can I continue to use after I graduate?
Students that haven't already downloaded and installed a permanent license for Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Office from Duke OIT should plan on signing onto http://dukeoit.onthehub.com to obtain license keys and install media prior to graduation. This is required to eliminate any software authentication or activation issues post graduation.
The license key located on the receipt must be saved or printed in addition to backing up the install media that is downloaded. There is no recourse for obtaining these items after graduation.
For users of VMWare Fusion on the Mac or others that have installed the KMS version (installed prior to October 2012) of Windows or Office that requires activation on Duke's network every six-months, they will need to uninstall the software and reinstall with the version from the On The Hub site. Again, there is no recourse to obtain this permanent license after graduation from Duke. If you have any questions as to which version you have please contact the TSC prior to graduation.
Students may continue to use course related software such as Regress and Crystal Ball for academic purposes only. The current Crystal Ball license will expire in August of 2016.
