Course Sites

Course sites are automatically created on the system the next day the corresponding course records are created in CUSIS.

Student After course instructors have updated their course sites and made them “available to students”, enrolled students will see the course sites listed under “My Courses” after successful login to the system.
Staff Listed course instructor(s) will see the course site(s) after successful login to the system. Course sites are set to “not currently available” to students by default.

If any of your enrolled courses do not appear:

  1. Check course site availability here.
  2. If you have added a course during the add/drop period, the course site will appear on the next day.
  3. Instructor and TA/Support Staff can control the availability of their course sites. Students are advised to backup all course materials before term-end if needed. Students can access course sites of the current year and the two previous years (which also depends on Instructor’s and/or TA/Support Staff’s decision). Staff can access course sites of the current year and the three previous years. (For more)
  4. If you still have questions, check with your instructors, TAs or support staff. You may also contact ITSC via ITSC Service Desk (eLearning Services general enquiry) for assistance.
