Get a jump start on your eLC course! In this workshop, we will begin with some eLC logistics, such as how students, instructors, and teaching assistants are added to courses, how and when users can access their courses, and where to find support documents. Then, participants will have the opportunity to step through popular tools together and have time to work on their own courses and ask questions.
Participants should bring (or have access to) any files they might like to add to their courses, such as their syllabus and content files.
During eLC Drop-In Hours, eLC consultants will be available to assist as you work on your course independently. There is no formal instruction in this session, but we can assist you with eLC tasks such as setting up your gradebook, customizing your homepage, adding and managing course content, and creating assignments and assessments.
Registration is not required, but is helpful so that we will know how many consultants should attend.
