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 Brightspace by D2L (https://graceland.brightspace.com/d2l/login).
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.
Step Two: Set Up Your Course
If the course has previously been created in Brightspace, contact ITS to make a copy for you (641-784-5167). They 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
Step Three: Your Login
Brightspace and My Graceland use your Graceland network username, which is the beginning of your Graceland email address (i.e. firstname.lastname@example.org).
