Accessing WyoLearn as an Instructor

If you have never accessed WyoLearn and you are added as an instructor to a WyoLearn course, you will receive an email similar to the one below. Click the “Get Started” button to finish setting up your WyoLearn account.

There are a few more elements of the course you should observe. First, note that some parts of the Syllabus are automatically populated with course information. There is a guide providing additional instruction on how to set up the Syllabus page here:

Finally, the Grades tab will allow you to track student performance in the course. By default, all WyoLearn course shells have one assignment called “Final Grade” present. This can be used to provide students with their final grade for the course. You can also add assignments and grade them individually in WyoCourses, but keep in mind:

If you use the “Final Grade” assignment as a way to provide students with grades, do not add any other assignments with point values to the course or this will change the way grades are shown.

If you add assignments with points to the shell, do not use the Final Grade assignment or this will add points to the student’s actual grade in the course that are not linked to an assignment.
