to help instructors create and manage entries on the Web Course Fact Sheet
to the WCFS at http://www.eku.edu/onlinelearning/courses/
. At the top right, click Post New Course/Edit Current Entry.
- Log in with your EKU
email address and password.
- If you want to create
a new entry, click Post New Course/Edit Current Entry
again, and proceed to step 4. If you want to reuse an entry from a previous
semester, proceed directly to step 5.
- If you are contributing
a brand-new entry, the process should be clear from the form. Be sure the
Semester at the top of the form is set appropriately. Please read comments
below about some details within the page. When you complete your work
on the form, be sure to click SUBMIT at the bottom of the
page. Your entry will be accepted automatically but it will not be publicly
visible until it is "verified" (checked for accuracy) by Gene Kleppinger.
- If you want to reuse
an entry submitted for an earlier semester, please follow these steps. After
logging in at step 2, set the drop-down menus for semesters and years to select
the appropriate term for the "old" course, and click Display
Courses. Find the entry for your course and click its Title link.
On the resulting display, scroll downward and you will see the areas where
you can make any changes you desire. Be sure to set the Semester correctly! Please read comments below about some details within
the page. When you have made all the changes you desire, be sure to click
SAVE CHANGES at the bottom of the page.
- If you want to make changes to
a current WCFS entry, log in as in steps 1 and 2, and then follow the directions
at step 5, selecting the current semester and year before clicking Display
on specific WCFS items:
- The "Course
Section" field is intended to list the registrar's sequential
number like 001, 002, etc., for classes with the same subject and number.
We also use this field to label (with "B" and "Y") fully
- Please put CRNs (like
50642) in the "Course Section Information" block.
- In the "Special
Section Registration Requirements" field, we will place a
link that says "View Registration Status," connecting to a page
that shows the number of registrations in your course. You don't have
to do anything about this link. It will not be operational until registration
- The "Instructor's
email" field is VERY SPECIAL because it identifies the "owner"
of the WCFS entry. Please leave it set to your EKU email address.
(If you prefer that students contact you another way, explain that in the
"Special Section Registration Requirements" field.)
- In the last field,
labeled "Instructor's Web Page," you are expected
to supply a URL that leads to a non-Blackboard page where students can find
a detailed description or proto-syllabus for the course. Please do not try
to link into Blackboard, because students will not be able to view your
course until they have registered for it. Consider placing the syllabus
in your EKU Web space at http://people.eku.edu/[your username], perhaps
inside a folder named for your course (such as PHI110/summer06_syll.doc).
You can reach your Web space as the W: drive on Windows, or at smb://filesrv.facultystaff.eku.edu/[your
username] on Macintosh.
- If your course is crosslisted,
e.g. for undergraduate/graduate credit or iinterdepartmental credit, you
are welcome to simplify your life by creating a complete WCFS entry for
one section of the course and then adding another entry that simply cross-references
the full one.
- If you have multiple
sections of the same course, we can create a single WCFS entry that explains
- If you want further
information about any of the fields on the WCFS, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
