Please see system requirements
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with the course information. Please provide us with the section numbers and any cross-listing information associated with the requested course. Instructors are also able to request their own courses by accessing https://learntools.uwaterloo.ca/ and requesting the course.
By default, all requested course shells are empty. To add content to your course please see: Copying course content.
By default, courses that are using LEARN are activated the morning of the first day of classes for the term in which they are being taught. Courses from the previous term are disabled on that day, just prior to the activation of the new term rosters. While this is the default setting, instructors may elect to release courses prior to, or later than, the first day of classes. To request an early release or extension, please contact email@example.com
Steps for Instructors to add a TA:
- Access the Connect menu
- Select Classlist
- Add a Participant
- Add existing user
- Search for the TA
- Check the box beside the user name
- Choose an access level (TA level 1.5, 2, 3, or 4)
- Enrol Selected Users
Instructors can also have TAs added by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and including the following information: Course, Section Number, Term, Instructor Name, TA Name(s), Student ID Number(s) and TA uwuserid(s).
Please indicate the level of access the TA(s) will require.
By default, courses are kept on instructors’ LEARN homepages for a year (3 terms) after the term of offer. A snapshot is taken of the course a month after the course has been taught and archived (content only is archived, not student data). At the end of the 3 terms, the courses are removed from the instructors’ LEARN homepage.
Class rosters are updated daily at 7:30am, 11:40 am, 4:40 pm, 8:40 pm, 12:40 am.
