Help for Faculty

This page is a collection of tutorials that explain how to use the various instructor tools in myCourses.

Are you new to all of this? Check out our handy myCourses Vocabulary Reference Sheet to aid your navigation and discovery of myCourses features. Also, before you can do anything in myCourses you will need to make a course site.

You might also consider uploading the myCourses Starter Kit into your site! The starter kit helps get you up and running by populating some important menu links and tools into your site. Learn how to import the starter kit here.
