COURSE SITE AUTOMATION
Academic Technology has moved to an automated course creation process utilizing data from PeopleSoft beginning with Summer 2022 courses. Faculty and staff no longer need to submit a course request form to have a Brightspace course created for the classes they are teaching. Courses marked active in PeopleSoft will appear in Brightspace in a more automated fashion.
The change was effective March 22, 2022. Faculty should see Summer 2022 courses in their Course Selector and My Courses widget now as long as your department has listed you as the primary instructor in PeopleSoft. This step must be performed by your department/college.
Information about all of these changes has been shared with your Brightspace contacts in colleges and those that work with PeopleSoft in your colleges and departments. It was also announced in Academic Technology news in the fall and most recently in the March 2022 edition which can be found inside Brightspace under Brightspace Help>Academic Technology News.
Changes to How the Classlist Updates
Student enrollment into Brightspace courses will now begin the day after a student is enrolled via Peoplesoft. Enrollment updates run overnight to add/drop students as needed.
Staff/Course Managers Accessing Courses Now
If you are a staff assistant or course manager/coordinator and need to be added to courses, please submit a request for help and include the course information from PeopleSoft so we can add you to the course.
