In low use situations, the TutorTrac server software may run on a server that is a dual-use server.
The following equipment is optional, but may be utilized by TutorTrac:
Digital camera for taking pictures to be imported into TutorTrac
Barcode reader, scanner, wand or other type of ID reading device
Powerful Database Engine
TutorTrac utilizes the proven technology of 4th Dimension of 4D, Inc. of San Jose, California. TutorTrac is a native language, compiled, executable application that takes full advantage of the processor of the machine on which it is operating. The time proven 4D system is in use in many time/security intensive databases and has been in use for over 15 years.
The Trac System requires all users to authenticate in order to access the system. Redrock Software recommends utilizing whichever secure campus authentication protocol is in place, be it LDAP, Active Directory, CAS, Blackboard, or other. Redrock Software also recommends that access to your Trac System and SAGE can also be secured with TLS encryption to protect your data across the web.
Protect your data
TutorTrac supports automatic backups of the data file on a user-defined timed interval. This process can also be handled by the campus’ own software.
As hardware needs change, moving the TutorTrac software to a different server is a simple task. It’s as simple as dragging and dropping the application directory onto the new server.
Frequently Asked Questions
How many students can we manage with the Trac System?
There is no limitation to the number of students that you can support in your Trac System. A single Trac System might support a specific population of students at a small campus or it may provide services for the entire student population of a large university. The Trac System is can scale to work with your needs.
Can I use the Trac System at multiple locations?
Yes, you are free to use the Trac System at as many locations as you like. Based upon your license, however, the locations may have to share the same settings and configurations. For additional configurations within the same license, you will need to purchase additional profiles.
What are Profiles?
A profile is a group of centers that operate in a similar manner and share the same preferences and configuration. The Trac System license comes with one profile and additional profiles may be purchased from Redrock Software Corporation.
Do I need TutorTrac or AdvisorTrac?
TutorTrac and AdvisorTrac are very similar in design and interface. They primary differences are related to the differences between tutoring and advising. When providing tutoring, the perspective is typically subject- or course-based. Students book appointments with tutors based on their need for assistance in a particular course. Generally, advising takes a macro-view of the student and provides help for the student to succeed in school. The main differences are in how the appointments are scheduled, visits are recorded, and consultants are notified.
Does the Trac System require a server?
Your Trac System may be installed locally at your campus or may be hosted by Redrock Software. When installed at your campus, you must have a dedicated server that meets the Server Requirements. If you would like Redrock Software to host your Trac System, then you will not need to manage a server and will simply work with your Trac System through the web interface.
