Creating a Course Web Page

Webcourses@UCF is a learning management system that enables every instructor to have a web page, even without knowing HTML.

Some instructors use it only to host the syllabus online, while others integrate website activities (online quizzes, discussion boards, learning modules, grade reporting to students) more deeply into their course.

To generate a Webcourse, log into the myUCF portal, click on Academic Resources, and select the Faculty Webcourse Manager link. You will be able to access the Webcourse within 24 hours.

For more details about creating a Webcourse, populating it with students, importing content from an existing course, and publishing the course to students, reference this semester-checklist.

The Center for Distributed Learning offers a Webcourses@UCF online faculty tour as well as other resources at their Webcourses Resource page.

Training for building a webcourse including more in depth professional development for instructors wanting to teach a reduced seat or fully online class can be arranged though CDL’s professional developmentpage.
