Before Registration Starts: Check Your Course Status
The U of S uses the Banner Student Information System (SiRIUS). Check courses as early as possible (preferably before registration starts) to make sure that the proper instructors have been assigned. This may be accomplished using SiRIUS Self Service.
Approximately one month before the start of the term, SiRIUS creates a course shell in BBLearn and adds students and all instructors for the course. The student class list is also automatically created and maintained. You are able to access this course from the moment it is created.
By default, the course will be available to students. Access is via PAWS > Academics Tab > My Courses > Course Tools > Courses I'm Attending.
If you do not want the course available to students while preparing content, the availability may be changed.
Note: Remember to reset the Course Availability to Yes before the students need to access it.
A. New Course - No content added
Content may be added using the Content Materials area. For more information, help documents and videos, please visit BBLearn / Course Tools Help.
B. Existing Development or Test Course - Some content added
Note: While you have the option to copy selected portions of content within this tool, it is recommended that you copy the entire content collection at one time as the functionality of some portions is dependent on others portions being available.
ADDITIONAL USERS:Add any additional instructors, course builders, graders, teaching assistants or guests to the course. While logged into your course, select the "Add Users By Role" tool within the Control Panel. You will require the NSID of the people you wish to enrol.
If you need assistance with any of the above steps, or have further questions, please e-mail email@example.com.
