Spring 2013 UNI eLearning academic courses were populated with students at 11:40 AM CST this morning, Monday, December 31, 2012. Spring 2013 student enrollment will be imported into the UNI eLearning System daily, so all enrollment changes (adds/drops) will be automatically processed. Any changes entered in the Student Information System by 5:00 PM will be processed the following day.
UNI Instructors: Bb9 eLearning courses are created in an "unavailable" state. This means an Instructor has access to the course, but students do not see the course listed in their My Courses module until the instructor makes the course available. Instructions for making your course "available" to students are published at: http://www.uni.edu/elearning/how-do-i-make-my-bb-learn-9-courses-available-students . No action is required for instructors that choose not to use the UNI eLearning System. Note: Courses contracted through Continuing and Distance Education (CDE) will be made available by CDE staff by 8:00 AM CST Monday, January 14, 2013.
UNI Students: You will not see a course listed in your My Courses module unless the Instructor has made the eLearning course available.

An eLearning site for all Spring 2013 courses in the Campus Solutions Student Information System (SIS) are now being automatically created for the Spring 2013 semester. The UNI eLearning System receives daily updates from the SIS of course offerings and instructor assignments.
Please review your Spring 2013 eLearning course(s) and consult your department scheduler if you do not see your course(s) or your Spring 2013 course(s) are not organized correctly. An eLearning site was created for each course as entered into the SIS. Any changes made in the SIS will be imported into the UNI eLearning System the following day.
Only the user entered as "Primary Instructor" in the SIS is automatically enrolled in the eLearning course as the Instructor. If there are co-instructors or additional non-registered users that need access to the eLearning course, the primary Instructor needs to follow the directions located at: http://www.uni.edu/elearning/how-do-i-add-non-registered-user-my-elearning-courses
Spring 2013 UNI eLearning courses will be populated with students on Monday, December 31, 2012 (tentative).
Course Copy: If you would like to use an existing UNI eLearning course for your Spring 2013 eLearnng course(s), please visit http://www.uni.edu/elearning/course-copy for information and directions.
