Faculty Missing Courses

Please review the following information before contacting support regarding a missing course.

  • Faculty will receive their courses for the upcoming term eight weeks before the start of that term.
  • Faculty missing a class should first confirm they have been assigned to the course properly in the Registrar's records. You may confirm this through the InfoCenterSIS or with the scheduling officer for your academic department. If the assignment is confirmed, then contact Academic Technology Support for assistance.
    • Please remember that any new assignments or changes in the Registrar's records will not be reflected on myCourses until the next morning as the information feed from the Registrar is sent to myCourses once each morning ~5:00am Eastern.
  • If you are an additional instructor or teaching assistant on a course, you will only have access to the course automatically if you are also listed in the Registrar's records.

Note

If you require immediate access to a course, a confirmation email may be sent by the scheduling officer, department head, or dean who represents the academic department offering the course to Academic Technology Support. This must include the full course number including section and the academic term of the courses(s).

These measures are due to the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).

Course updates indicator

Warning

The Course Updates indicator may not be 100% accurate.

You may find that you have indicators for work you cannot find.

When a student make an appropriate action, such as making a Discussion post or taking a quiz, the system updates the indicators. The indicators are not updated if work is removed before the instructor reviews it. For example the instructor removes a Discussion forum before reading all new messages in it. A student drops or withdraws from a course and their work, such as a quiz attempt or dropbox submission, is archived before the instructor reviews it.

The vendor is aware of this concern but has not implemented a fix at this time.
