About Announcements

I will make announcements in class when I post materials, as well as sending emails and/or announcement messages inside MyPortal.

  • Course Studio announcements can be seen by clicking on the My Courses link for this class.
  • New announcements will also appear as Messages inside MyPortal on the Home Tab, only visible to students registered in the class.
For Students: Troubleshooting Error Messages inside Course Studio
  • Do you see this message when you first click on the MyCourses link for a class — Course Communication (Web-Based) Tool Not Linked? That page is the default if an instructor has NOT activated Course Studio for a class. Wait for the first day of class to find out. It may be that your instructor will use a different way to distribute materials and communicate online.
  • If your instructor is using Course Studio during a quarter and it suddenly is no longer accessible (you get that same default message), please alert your instructor of the change so that s/he can report the problem to the appropriate office and Course Studio may be restored for your class.
  • If your instructor has activated course studio but YOU cannot access it, please alert your instructor so that s/he may report the problem to the appropriate office for troubleshooting.
