For student privacy and FERPA reasons, we must be able to verify course instructors in the class schedule before associating student data with a course site. Verification will fail if there is no instructor on record or you are not the listed primary instructor of the course within UM Reports/PeopleSoft.
Our policy is:
If you are not listed in the class schedule as the instructor, or, if you have requested a course site for someone else (e.g. you are a TA) and have not included the primary instructor on the site request form, we will create the site so you can begin working on it. However, we will not fetch the class list of registered students until we have approval from the instructor. Please have the instructor of record Contact Moodle Support to give their approval.
Only the primary instructor can set up auto-enrollment for their sites.
If you are the one who will be teaching the course, ask your department to make sure you are listed in Peoplesoft as the instructor of record. Contact Moodle Support to let us know once this is done. We will then fetch the class list of registered students into your site.
To request a site, go to the Dashboard of the Moodle instance for which you want a site. The link to the request form is in the Help & Support block under Instructors.
