Orienting Students

When students first login to your course, they need to know how to get started.


Prepare students for this semester

When students first login to your course, they need to know how to get started.

  • Create a begin here and student resources modules. Presenting this information in modules at the beginning of the course will ensure students start off the course on the right foot. Global Online has developed two modules to get you started, both are included in the GO ACT Template and are also shared via the UWF Canvas Commons.
  • Update and review your syllabus. This Syllabus Template for Fall 2020 has been reviewed and revised by various campus partners. 
  • Create a course homepage that includes specific information about how to get started in the course. 
  • Send a Course Welcome Canvas Announcement to outline your expectations for the first week. 

This video and other resources can be found in the Student Resources module that GOLD has developed for students.
