Introductory Workshops

OTIS hosts several introductory workshops at the start of fall and spring semesters. In these workshops you will learn how to customize your system preferences, view a course from the student perspective, create a content structure and add content to your course.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I add my TA to a course?

To add someone to your course, click on "Classlist" in the navigation bar. Click "Add Participants" and "Add Existing Users." You can search for users by first name, last name, or UGA myID. Click "Search." Locate the person you want to add, and click the selectbox to the left of their name. Use the dropdowns to select a Role and a Section, and click "Enroll Selected Users."

For Athena courses,  students are automatically added and dropped each night based on Athena data. It is not necessary to manually add students to your courses. The Registrar prefers that all student enrollments come from Athena.

How can I see my course as a student?

Most course homepages include the Role Switch widget. Under current role, select Student then click Change Role. When you are finished viewing your course as a student, go to the course homepage, and in the Role Switch widget, select Instructor and click Change Role. Using the Role Switch does not allow you to submit Assignments or Quizzes. If you are an instructor, you may use your Demo Student account to view your course.

How do I copy course content into my new course?
