To help you prepare for the start of term, we've highlighted some key activities for you to do to get your course ready in eClass, York University's Learning Management System.
Log in to eClass with your Passport York username and password. In most cases we add you to your course automatically and you should see it on your course dashboard. (If you are YUFA, you will be assigned to your courses the day after you are assigned in ARMS (our system of record for who is teaching which courses), and for CUPE, you will be assigned, the day after the acceptance of your offer has been recorded in ARMS.)
You can use the Filter in the Course overview block to show either In progress, Past or Future courses.
If you still don't have access to your course or would like to start building your course ahead of your official assignment please send us an email to with the course information.Delete
You'll need to add your TA's to your course. Most TA's are added with the role 'Non-editing Instructor'. If you'd like to give them full editing access (the same access as yours, you should select the role 'Instructor' in step 3.
Adding other users to your course is simple, follow our steps here.Delete
Do you have Panopto videos from your past courses that you'd like to reuse, take a look at how you can do that.Delete
Once your course is ready, you should make it visible to students.
To make your course visible to your students:
You might consider using the Course Announcements to let your students know their course is available on eClass. You may also want to include course related information such as what they should expect from the course, how they are being evaluated and how they can communicate with you etc.Delete
Setting up your gradebook is not required for the start of term but it is recommended to get your gradebook set up early before your grading begins. See our step by step guide for setting up your gradebook.
We recommend that you hide your course total until you decide that students should see their final grades and you are sure that your calculations are working as expected.Delete
