Using an online course delivery tool will improve communication with your students, and will also give you cost effective options for making your syllabus, assignments, and other information available to your students. Graceland uses two online course delivery tools: My Graceland (https://my.graceland.edu) and eCompanion (www.gracelandonline.com).
Step One: Contact the Lead Teacher to Determine the Best Online Course Delivery Tool for Your Course
Check with the Lead Teacher for your course. He/She can let you know how the course has been handled in the past and what seemed to work best. Click HERE to see a course list with 2015-2016 Lead Teachers.
Step Two: Set Up Your Course
If the course has previously been created in eCompanion, contact Ron Ellis to make a copy for you (email@example.com or 641-784-5467 or 641-784-5167). Ron can also assist you in updating the course with your own information. He'll need the following information:
- (Your course) Your Name, Course Number, Section Number, Term/Year
- (Previous course to be copied) Name of instructor, Course Number, Term/Year
If your course was taught in My Graceland, an online course is automatically created for you. Each term your course(s) will appear in My Courses in the left column under Quick Links (on any page in My Graceland). Several tutorials for managing your course are provided HERE.
Step Three: Your Login
Both eCompanion and My Graceland uses your Graceland network username, which is the beginning of your Graceland email address (i.e. firstname.lastname@example.org). eCompanion, however, will have a different password. Ron Ellis can help with your login for either system (email@example.com or 641-784-5467 or 641-784-5167).
