When you open up your browser to check out sctcc.edu on Thursday, March 30, you'll be seeing a new website look. After many months of planning and work, the new website is ready to launch.
The new site is oriented toward prospective SCTCC students, but current students, faculty, and staff will have all the information they currently have on sctcc.edu by selecting "Information For."
Some welcome additions: a Quicklinks tab at the top of every page, which includes most-visited pages, including email, D2L Brightspace, eServices, and the Library. There is also a lot more visual and interactive interest on pages, with statistics, videos, people spotlights, and more. The site was built for mobile browsers first, so all pages are responsive and work on small screens, as well as large screens.
With the launch of the new site, SCTCC Marketing and Communications is taking any suggestions on current students and alumni who have a great story to tell. Sharing these stories will keep the new site fresh.
If you open up the website on Thursday and don’t see any changes, you can try the following:
Clearing Cache Memory (force refresh)
To ensure you see the latest version of a site you need to clear the cache memory. On a Windows PC, you can do a force refresh by pressing both control + F5 simultaneously on your keyboard. Mac users can press command+shift+R and Linux users can press F5.
If this refresh doesn’t work, you need to clear the cache by hand. Step-by-step guides can be found at refreshyourcache.com for various browsers.
In the same way that your web browser has a cache of recent web pages, your Internet Service Provider (ISP) may be doing some caching on your behalf.
In some (rare) cases, even though you are using shift-refresh to get new data from a webpage, the pages still seem to be old. This may be because your Internet Service Provider also has a cache and their cache may not be set up quite right, and they are not downloading the latest web pages.
When you encounter this problem you will have to communicate with your ISP to fix this problem.
