How do I … in eLearning?

Faculty CAN access F14 eLearning courses; Helpful Video Links

Just a quick reminder …  Even though your Fall 2014 courses have the wording “(not currently available)” beside the course name, YOU are still able to access your courses and add/modify content.  This wording just means that the courses are not available to your students.  Courses will become available Monday morning.

Also, please notice that I’ve added some links on the My eLearning web page to some videos we’ve been sending out to several faculty recently.  If you log into eLearning, you should see a bright blue module on the left side of the page titled “HELPFUL VIDEOS FOR FACULTY”.  These video links will remind you how to add a TA to your course, how to copy content from your old semester to your Fall course, and even how to clean up your Course List.

Hope you find this helpful!
