Inside Learn@UWSuperior for Instructors
Like students, the first thing you will see is the My Home page after you log into Learn@UWSuperior. (See image) This is where you will find News from the Learn@UWSuperior administrator, where you will find the courses you are enrolled in, and where to change your settings.
My Home Features and Tools:
The banner at the top of the page contains the navigation bar links. (See image) The top row provides general Learn@UWSuperior tools and links that are not for a specific course, and the bottom row, used mainly within courses, provides course-specific tools. Always on the bottom, at the far right, is the Logout link.
You can tell quickly whether you are in My Home or in a Course Home page by the information on the navigation bar rows.
In My Home: JDH Library link on the top row, Survey and Logout on the bottom row.
In a Course Home: Locker link on the top row, links to the course features and tools on the bottom row.
My Home will refresh the My Home page.
Email opens the Learn@UWSuperior internal email tool. This is a convenient way to send a message to classmates and instructors, but it is not set up to store sent emails or receive mail. Please see the How to Send an Email page for more information on this link.
Schedule opens a personal calendar. Instructors can create schedule items for your courses, that will appear on this calendar for students. Please see the Adding Events to the Schedule for more information on this link.
JDH Library will redirect to the Jim Dan Hill Library homepage.
Surveys will take you to the list of surveys available to UW-Superior.
Logout will end your session in Learn@UWSuperior
There are five tabs in Preferences - General, Appearance & Accessibility, Language & Region, Discussions, and Email.
On the General tab (See image) you can select the CD-ROM drive Learn@ UWSuperior will use.
On the Appearance & Accessibility tab (See image) you can change the font and size that Learn@UWSuperior displays information with, use the Preview box to see your changes. You can also adjust the assistive technology, HTML Editor, and Math Display settings.
On the Language & Region tab (See image) you can specify the first day of the week, continent, and time zone.
On the Discussions tab (See image) you can change the display settings, message list view & style, character limits, and reply settings.
On the Email tab (See image) you are able to add an email signature and show external email addresses in the Address Book. Because the internal email tool is not set up to store sent e-mails, you will want to select the checkbox next to "Send a copy of each outgoing message to (your username)@uwsuper.edu" if you want to keep a record of your messages.
Note: The emails will come from your UW-Superior address to your UW-Superior address, without showing the recipients of the email.
You can change your password for Learn@UWSuperior here, but it will not change the password for your network account, your UW-S E-Mail or your E-Hive. Changing the password here is for those with visitor or specialty accounts. If you want to change all your passwords, go to your E-Hive account and change your password there. (See image)
This page allows you to edit your user profile. The default is set to just your first and last name, you can update this page with as much or as little information about yourself as you are comfortable sharing. Please remember that when someone looks up your user profile, they will see all this information. (See image)
You are able to access your Learn@UWSuperior Locker from this link. (See image) The Locker is an area to upload and store files in the Learn@UW-Superior system. Files stored in a locker can be accessed from any location as long as you are logged into Learn@UW-Superior.
Note: The Locker has a 10MB storage limit.
When uploading files to the locker, it is best to rename files so that the file name contains no spaces and uses no special characters. These special characters are NOT allowed in file and folder names:
" * / : < > ? \ | ' & ; #
The News on My Home will contain information from the Learn@UWSuperior Administrator. (See image) These items may include server maintenance, performance outages or tips on how to use Learn@UWSuperior.
Sample News items:
This is a list of the UW-Superior courses you are enrolled in and the campus groups you may be a part of.
Enter each course's main page by clicking on the course name under My Superior Courses on My Home. If you can't see your courses, click the plus sign (+) next to the semester you wish to view. (See image) If you use a popup blocker, it is recommended that you disable it for the Learn@UWSuperior tools, since some functions appear as popup windows.
If you have taught 100 or more courses at UW-Superior, instead of displaying each of those courses like it has in the past, the new version of Learn@UWSuperior gives you a search field. If you type in SPR08, SMR08, or F08 you will get a list of all the courses you have taught during that semester. If you are looking for a specific class, you can type in the course name, for example: Comm 104 SMR08, and be taken directly to that course. Once you have entered a course, it will display in the "Last 20 Accessed Courses" section below the search field. (See image)
