Logging On/Account Setup

I am a faculty member. When can I log onto the course(s) I am teaching to modify the content?

Courses are usually made available to faculty two weeks prior to the logon date for students (which is the Friday before the course officially begins). You may be notified by your department (the one the course falls under) when the course is available as well as be provided with any other applicable information. For any specific questions regarding dates, or if you still do not see the course and it is two weeks (and no more) before the logon date, please contact your department for any and all inquiries.

I am a student. When can I log onto the course(s) I am taking in the upcoming term?

Students gain access to course sections in WorldClassRoom by 12:00pm CST (noon) on the Friday prior to the official start of the term/course.  Please refer to the academic calendar for term dates.  If it is after noon on the Friday prior to the term and you were registered for the course more than 24 hours prior to that time, please contact the IT Service Desk. If you were registered for the course on or after the Friday prior to the term, you will gain access to the course on the following day.
