Inside Learn@UWSuperior for Instructors
The My Home page is the first one you will see 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:
With the Version 10 upgrade in June 2012, the navigation was changed to include two navigation bars, the Minibar (black) and the Navigation bar (yellow). The Minibar will always be visible, allowing you to return to the My Home page, Select a course, adjust your Account Settings, and Logout from any screen in the system. The Navigation bar will change depending on where you are, the My Home screen or inside one of your courses.
There are three tabs in Account Settings - Account Settings, Discussions, and Email.
On the Account settings tab (see image) you can change:
On the Discussions tab (see image) you can change the personal display settings 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 there is no Sent folder in Learn@UWSuperior, 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 messages you've sent through the system.
Note: The emails will come from your UW-Superior address to your UW-Superior address, without showing the recipients of the email. It will not list of people you sent the email to.
This page allows you to set up notifications of activity within your courses. You can select an email address, pick what time of the day you want the emails, as well as which tools you would like notification from. (see image) Most of these notification options benefit your students more than you.
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)
Resources - this dropdown menu has information and links that will help you with your course work and using Learn@UWSuperior (see image). They include links to:
ePortfolio - This tool will allow you to make electronic versions of your portfolio that you can share with peers, instructors, and mentors. If you would like more information on ePortfolios, please see the Learn@ UWSuperior ePortfolio section of the Teaching & Learning Tools site.
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 arrow (>) 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.
Note: The My Superior Courses section (see image) will show:
If you have taught 100 or more courses at UW-Superior, instead of displaying each of those courses like it has in the past, you will have a search field. If you type in SPR15, SMR15, or F15 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 SMR15, 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) Note: With the last system maintenance, courses in the Last 20 Accessed Courses area are listed alphabetically not in the order you visited them.
