Faculty Dashboard Highlights 

We've made it easier to stay on top of pertinent information for instructors by adjusting how you receive alerts, access terms, and filter courses. With this new dashboard, you will have access to:

  • Alerts - LU Alerts are shown on the top left – these are pulled from myLU.
  • Change Term drop down – Change the term dropdown to filter courses from any term in which you have course enrollments.
  • Non-Term Courses – These courses can be hidden by clicking on the "Gear" and then clicking the "Eyeball" icon to show or hide the course.  You can also still click on the link of a hidden course in the edit mode to navigate to the course without “showing” it first.

Each course has the following Quick Links to the right of the course ID (these links will take you directly into your course to the corresponding location):

  • Create Announcements
  • Grade Center
  • Needs Grading
  • Student Roster / Post Final Grades



Features Available for Secondary Users:

In addition to the primary faculty features, secondary users will have access the following features: 

Filtering – you are able to filter your course list using the filter boxes on the left.  These boxes accumulate – so you can filter by one or all four to narrow down your list even further. Make sure you click outside the filter field or click on the Enter key to activate the filter.

Sorting – you can click on the Course link or the Instructor link at the top of your course list to sort A-Z by either column.
