Adding Syllabus Information, Office Hours, & Emailing Class
- Click the Syllabus icon to add syllabus information.
- The Syllabus Information screen appears. Enter information for students to see, and then click Submit.
Note: Syllabus will be available ONLY to students who have already registered for your class. Entering syllabus information is completely optional. The default field names are those provided by Banner. At this time, they cannot be modified.
Moodle Users: You may simply wish to enter "Syllabus will be posted in Moodle." Moodle will automatically merge cross-listed courses. For sections taught at multiple levels (undergrad/grad) or locations, you may request a single Moodle ISU course with all your students enrolled. Please see the General Moodle Instructor Procedures on the ITRC website.
- Click the Office Hours (clock) icon to add office hours information.
- The Office Hours screen appears. Notice that you can enter different office hours for
each class that you are teaching. After entering, you may use the Copy To
function to copy the same hours to your other classes, or you can enter
different hours for each class.
- Using 24-hour (military) time, enter From/To Times for the class associated with the
icon you clicked. Enter Day(s) of Week, select Contact Number, enter Location, From/To
Dates, select Display to allow students to view your hours, and then click
From/To Times and From/To Dates are required when adding hours. If you do not enter From/To Dates, hours will not be saved.
Note: Office hours will be available ONLY to students who have already registered for your class. Entering office hours information is completely optional, although it will provide an added convenience for students.
Click the Email icon to send an email to your class. Note: This will work only if you have an email client such as Outlook or Thunderbird installed. It will not currently work with Gmail.
Moodle Users: You may also use Moodle to email your class. Starting with Fall 2010,
courses are created in Moodle ISU based on information provided in the class schedule and
managed by the ISU Registrar. If you are an instructor and need a course added to Moodle
ISU, please see the General Moodle Instructor Procedures on the ITRC website, and contact
your department course scheduler.
