6/15/2010 - MAXWELL AIR FORCE BASE, Ala.  -- Air University officials here announced today that most functions are restored to a computer system responsible for the majority of Air Force distance education.

The Course Development, Student Administration/Registrar system crashed in mid-May and with it went the ability to support much of distance professional military education, specialized courses for professional continuing education, Career Development Courses and the Weighted Airmen Promotion System.

Officials report that distance learning course enrollments, progressions and completions, to include e-testing updates from Test Control Facilities, are operational. All students with an open enrollment or reaching course expiration during the CDSAR outage--May 13-June 13--have been granted a two-month extension. The courses include Squadron Officer College Course 20 and Course 28; any enlisted professional military education; CDCs; and any specialized courses.

The functions responsible for the automated processing of WAPS and DL course material for delivery are operational. The automated process for diploma printing is still being tested. Further, Air University is working to implement a process for CDC downloads from Advanced Distributed Learning Service, or ADLS, in the near future.

"Right now the only piece of CDSAR that is not partially or fully functional or in our testing and verification phase is CDC course development," said Col. Anthony Zucco, director of Education Logistics and Communications for Air University. "However, alternative manual methods are in place, and we continue to work on finding an automated solution. CDC development has not stopped; it is just a little slower."
