    Lesson 1

    In this lesson you will:

    learn how to get to your master course from your myTC page.

    become familiar with the different sections of the course home page (Start Here).

    create a Welcome statement for your Start Here page.

    learn how to upload files to the MoxieManager.

    A term labeled Master has been created to house your Master classes in Jenzabars eLearning

    LMS. This is the term in which all Master classes [online, hybrid, face-to-face] courses will be

    built.

    Go to the Texarkana College homepage and click the myTC tab.

    Log in using your TC Username and Password.

    Open your Faculty tab.

    Under the section titled Jenzabar eLearning LMS, you should see the name of the course you

    asked me to create specifically for this class. All Master course will be labeled in the following

    manner: 4 letter ACGM/WECM prefix; course number; have a section number of W for online

    courses, H for hybrid courses, or a T for traditional face-to face courses. The faculty members

    name will appear in parenthesis at the end. [ex. HIST 1301.W (V. Wilder)]

    Click on your course located in the Master term. I have created a course named Practice 10 to

    use for demonstration purposes for this class.

    Your course page has been defaulted to open to a portlet entitled Start Here. Lets take a look at

    the basic layout of the Start Here page (the basic layout is similar in all the portlet pages). You

    have three main areas on the page.

    1. A light-blue sidebar to the left that contains the basic navigation links within the course.

    This sidebar has twelve basic portlets in which most of your course materials will appear.

    The students will see these portlets in their student view as well. The Course Search and

    Spring 2016 (current semester) also appear on the students page, but these two portlets

    do not contain course specific information. The Add a page, Context Manager, and

    Usage Statistics do not show up on the student view of the page.

    Please do not rearrange the order of the first 12 portlets. The purpose is to keep a

    consistent look so students will see the same layout when switching from course to

    course, thus causing less confusion.

    You will be able to add additional pages to this side-bar. Adding additional pages will be

    covered in a later lesson. Any additional pages should fall below the Course

    Information page.

    2. The dark-blue sidebar at the bottom of the page is titled Quick Links. The Copy

    Courses link will be used by faculty to copy the master course to current semester

    courses. We will cover that in a later lesson. The other links are to web pages that are

    outside the eLearning LMS.

    3. The large white space covering most of the page is where specific information relevant to

    the one portlet resid
