Another semester has come and gone. Congratulations to all the new Carolina Graduates!
The spring may be over but it is already time to start thinking ahead to the fall. Fall 2019 rosters are now available in Sakai so you can get a head start and create your Fall 2019 course sites now!
Step 1: ConnectCarolina
In order to create your course sites, your departmental course scheduler must list you as one of the following for each of your course rosters in ConnectCarolina:
- Primary Instructor
- Secondary Instructor
- Proxy Instructor
- Dean’s Designate
Contact your departmental course scheduler to list you in ConnectCarolina with the appropriate instructor role. If you log into ConnectCarolina and don’t see your courses listed for Fall 2019, your scheduler needs to make this change. Please note that it may take up to 24 hours to update in Sakai. Also note that Teaching Assistants in ConnectCarolina cannot create course sites in Sakai.
See more information on access:
Step 2: Create Fall 2019 Course Site
Once your departmental scheduler has listed you for your course rosters in ConnectCarolina and our Sakai data has refreshed (happens 3 times a day), here are the steps to follow to create your course site.
Get started with either of these two options:
- Home > Worksite Setup > New
- Sites > Create New Site
Then follow these steps:
- Select course site
- Mark Academic term as Fall 2019 and Continue
- Check course you want to create and Continue — Check only 1 roster if you want separate course sites
- Edit Home Description (or later) and Continue
- Check tools you want to use and Continue — can add/remove later
- Leave as Draft and Continue — remember to publish site when ready
If you want to reuse any old course material, you may do so before continuing in Step #5 through the “Re-use Material from Other Sites You Own.” You can also wait until after you have created your site and use the Import from Site feature. See details on duplicating course content.
Step 3: Hide Old Sites
New sites will now automatically appear in your top favorite tabs. You can clean up your top tabs by removing old sites from view (still accessible). Simply click Sites and then the star next to each site title. The lit star means the site is favorited and will appear in the top tabs. To remove a site from the top tabs, click the star to dim / “hide” the site. You can organize how favorited sites are listed through the Organize Favorites tab.
