Starting Fall 2018, GauchoSpace will auto-create most course sites for instructors. Rather than using the Course Site Creator tool, your course sites will be created at the appropriate site creation time. The new course sites should appear on your dashboard. They will be hidden from students by default and will be created using the weekly format.
Course sites will only be automatically created in your account if you are listed as the Instructor of Record (IOR). Generally, the instructor's home department will list IORs in STAR/GOLD. Please note that it may take 4-8 hours for changes in STAR/GOLD to sync with GauchoSpace. If you believe you are listed as the IOR and your course site is still not appearing, please submit a help ticket.
Please also note that automatic course site creation may be complicated by courses that are dual-listed across multiple departments. Please use the Course Deletion and Roster Merge tool or submit a help ticket for assistance in this situation.
Most course sites are automatically created (but not all), so in the event that a course site hasn't been created(an example of this might include a small independent study course, or the cross-listed courses), instructors can still use the course site creator tool by using the following instructions:
- Log in to GauchoSpace and navigate to the Home page.
Note: If you are new to using GauchoSpace as an Instructor, or are a returning instructor who has not used GauchoSpace for several quarters, it may be helpful to enroll yourself in our GauchoSpace Online Orientation site.
