CourseSpaces Startup Kit
This Startup Kit is intended for all CourseSpaces users.
CourseSpaces is an online “Course Management System,” which means it’s an online classroom, or site, where you can find everything you need for your online course(s). You can access your CourseSpaces course(s) from any computer with an Internet connection.
How to navigate through this Startup Kit
This Startup Kit is designed to help you learn how to use CourseSpaces, and includes instructions for setting up your computer, logging into your CourseSpaces course(s), and using the various tools you will find there.
Work your way through the entire Startup Kit before logging into your CourseSpaces course so that you know what to do once you get there. You can work your way through this Kit in order (using the Table of Contents as your guide), or jump to whichever pages you feel you need to review.
If you ever get lost while going through the Startup Kit, use the menu on the left-hand side of the Startup Kit window – this menu lists all the sections you see below in the Table of Contents, so hopefully you will always be able to figure out where you are!
And remember, if, when working in your CourseSpaces course, you forget how to use a tool, you can always come back to this Startup Kit and review the information relevant to that tool.
