Quick Start

At the top of the site, under the User Name and Password boxes are 'tabs' - heading words that represent various areas of the online campus. Clicking on the different heading words will display different areas of the online campus. The text for the heading of the area currently being viewed will be colored gray and surrounded by a thing gray border, while all the other tabs/headings remain white with no surrounding border.
Note: If the browser window is too small to list all the areas of the online campus on one line, the last heading on the right will be "more..." That heading word will open a vertical list of the rest of the areas.
  • If you have been admitted as a student...after you log in, the "Students" 'tab' is a good starting point for the information you need most often. Please visit the "Student Navigation" topic in the left sidebar of this area for more detailed navigation tips.
  • If you are faculty... after you log in, the "Faculty" 'tab' is a good starting point for the information you need most often. Please visit the "Faculty Navigation" topic in the sidebar of this window for more detailed navigation tips.

General navigation tips

Breadcrumbs:
Just beneath the tabs/headings is a "breadcrumb" bar, with the words "You are here:". This "breadcrumb" bar will show a 'breadcrumb trail' that will vary in length, depending on your current location in the online campus. Each part of the breadcrumb trail is a "click-able" link to a section of the website.
 
Left Sidebar:
At the left of the site, there is a sidebar area that contains three areas.
  1. The first area lists the pages in the current section of the online campus. The active page is highlighted. It may also contain some links to manage the current section.
  2. The second area is the search feature. You can search for any phrase; the options can also be set to change what content will be searched.
  3. The third area is titled "Quick Links". If you are logged in, it lists your current courses in (if any), your personal pages, campus groups you belong to (if any). This last area also lists links to other useful websites.
Also…
  • Use the trail of "click-able" words in the breadcrumb bar to move "up", or "back", in the online campus. 
  • Click on a heading in the left sidebar to change to a different page of information within the same area. 
  • right-click (or long-press on a touch device) any link to choose to open it in a new window. This can be very useful for viewing more than one area at the same time.
  • When posting essays or other long text, the text entry box can be made larger by clicking and dragging the "blue-dotted triangle" in the bottom right corner of most text entry boxes.

General Tips

Because of the unreliable nature of wireless connections, it is wise to copy-and-paste text from long posts into a program like "Notepad" or "TextEdit" before clicking "Submit". In case the submit fails, you will still have a copy that can be copy-and-pasted back in, after the wireless connection is working again.

You may use the HTML view of the text editor to create or paste in HTML code. (Look for the text editor button "<>"). This is particularly useful when using a program that creates well-structure HTML code. It is also useful when adding "embed codes", such as with video content.

Double-check (and fix any errors!) after pasting into a text box, especially after copying from a program like Microsoft Word - invisible formatting codes can get carried over may prevent the content from displaying correctly.

To prevent undesired formatting codes from carrying over when copy-and-pasting, first paste text into a program like "Notepad" or "TextEdit" to remove all formatting codes, then copy the "cleaned" text from that program, and then paste the "clean" text. Then, use the text editor on the site to modify the formatting.
