The system improvements include:

  • Interface changes allow faculty and administrators to more easily enable student access to courses during each semester’s shopping period.
  • Students can opt-in to show their own photo and see peers’ photos via the “Roster” tool.
  • Faculty can embed video from Vimeo and Youtube throughout the course site.
  • The Files & Resources section has new tools to simplify hiding and unhiding files.
  • Group management has been streamlined, which is especially useful for large courses.

Faculty and instructors who need assistance with CourseWorks can contact CCNMTL at or visit the CCNMTL Faculty Support Lab in 204 Butler Library.
