The first time you login, if you have no courses currently offered in UR Courses, you will receive the following message: "Sorry you are not enrolled in any UR Courses at this time. Please contact the IT Support Centre @ 585-4685 with any problems or concerns."
Otherwise the courses you are registered in will appear. To login, simply click the appropriate course.
Each course is split into three columns organized with blocks/tools on the right and left sections and the course content in the middle section. Course Content is usually broken down into weeks or topics. Every week or topic may have content and/or various resources, like discussion forums, quizzes or assignments.
The right and left columns of the course homepage have blocks with additional tools and features, such as the calendar block, upcoming events, recent activity, etc. Block placement is unique for each course/instructor. For example, the calendar may appear in the top right section for one course in the bottom left of another or not at all. Students may not add blocks.
The Top of the Course Homepage contains the University logo, your name with a logout option, the course title and breadcrumbs for navigation. Breadcrumbs are used to track progress through your UR Course. As you click each link, the breadcrumbs will display the last page or link. Each link can then be clicked to access a previous section or page of the UR Course site.
To access any Resource or Activity in UR Courses, you may simply click on its link on the Course Homepage. Once you access the resource, you will be able to use your browser's back and forward buttons or the breadcrumbs to jump back to the course homepage.
The Hide/Expand option allows each student to hide or expand the content on the main page of the course.
