Class Features Tool in ConnectCarolina
Introducing Class Features!
What is it?
Instructors will have the ability to provide students with additional information about their class(es) around course components, policies, and resources and may upload a draft syllabus, frequently asked questions, or other helpful, introductory documents in ConnectCarolina. Updates to the information are made in real time and can be adjusted until January 25, 2021 for the Spring 2021 semester. The syllabus for enrolled students remains the official contract between instructors and students.
Particularly now, students require information about classes as they plan their upcoming semester to find the best fit for their learning. Course descriptions rarely provide all the information students seek around class structure, attendance, cost, and more. Completing this not only serves as a communication mechanism for prospective students, it may reduce the number of emails and drop/adds to your course.
How do I use it?
Go to Connect Carolina and click “My schedule”. (If necessary, change the term to Spring 2021.) You will see a link for “Class Features” for each course you teach in the Spring 2021 semester. Students begin registration on November 30th, so please add information as you can before this date.
Watch a short video demonstration to get started.
