Getting your course site ready

  • Pre-created course shell
    If the class you teach is listed in CUSIS, you do not need to apply for a course site. Course sites on CU eLearning system are automatically created according to class information in CUSIS.

  • Set course available to student
    To allow you time to set up your course site (e.g. update new course schedule, uploading of course materials for the 1st week), the site is set to unavailable to students by default when they are created. You have to set the course site to available when it is ready for students’ access. (Detailed steps)

  • Students enrollment
    The student list of your course site will be updated automatically according to course enrollment records in CUSIS. During the add/drop period, the system will add new students to your course site and remove students who have dropped your course. The "Student List Update" job runs every night. Therefore, students who added your course today will be granted access to your course site the next day. If a student needs immediate access to your course site, instructors and TAs in your course site may add the student using CUHK User Management Tool.

  • Special requests
    • Course copy
    • Creation of a combined course site to serve multiple classes
    • Creation of a course site to serve a non-CUSIS listed class
    • Request for Instructor/TA access to a course site
    • Creation of user accounts for non-CUHK users to access your course site

    For any special requests, please send email to elearning@cuhk.edu.hk with details for the request (e.g. purposes, durations, details of students and teachers involved).
