New Course Website Support: Our transition to a new LMS, Canvas (called "WyoCourses") brings some changes for greater efficiency. For technical help, follow the instructions above. For pedagogical advice and help wth teaching tools and methods, continue to come to Instructional Design and Technology. Please see our web materials below, consult us at one of the sessions described on the IDT Main Page or call ECTLIDT (307.766.4814).
For supplementing classroom teaching, the University of Wyoming provides course websites via three online course platforms or learning management systems (LMS's) -- Wyocourses, Course Studio and eCompanion. These platforms differ in look-and-feel and functionality; successful deployment requires some investment of time and practice.
Note: Students will need to know what course platform you are using and how to access the course website. Refer them to the Student Info page.
This page will help you get started setting up your course websites and getting your students enrolled in them. For help with common e-Companion problems, see this page.
For more information, see the Create a Course Studio Website tutorial, or the full Instructions for Standard Teaching Tasks in Course Studio.
Instructors submit a Course Request form for each course for which they would like an eCompanion course website. Students and instructors are automatically enrolled in their eCompanion course websites shortly after each course website is created. Students can access their courses one week before the semester starts.
For more information, see Getting Started with eCompanion or the full Instructions for Standard Teaching Tasks in eCompanion.
