Preparing Your Course

Your course is made available to you 5-6 weeks before the start of the term and is pre-populated with content either from the last time you taught the course or from the master course. You receive an email letting you know the course is available and ready for your preparation.

As an online faculty member, it is your responsibility to make sure your course is set up on time according to the expectations outlined in the documents below. Courses must be set up at least 10 days in advance of the term start date so the Online Education staff can ensure that all courses are ready when they become available to students.

Contact our team at onlinehelp@jwu.edu or 401-598-4429 if you have questions or need support.
