cuLearn is Carleton’s learning management system and is a great tool for building an engaging online environment. With cuLearn, you can share your syllabus and lecture slides, create discussion groups, upload readings or videos, accept online assignment submissions, create self-marking quizzes, send announcements to students, and post student grades. And these are just some of the many possible functions of this powerful tool!

So, what’s the best way to get started? Come to this introductory session to find out!

By the end of this session, you will know how to:

Navigate cuLearn
Setup an engaging environment for your students
Post a welcome announcement to your class or send a welcome email
Add instructor and course contact information
Add course resources, such as a course outline and external URL links
Add learning activities, such as discussion forums
Add a TA or co-teacher
Make your course visible to students

This session is intended for participants who are just starting out in cuLearn with beginner-level or early-developing skills.
