Online Orientation Site
To better accommodate Instructors' busy schedules, The Collaborate Introduction to GauchoSpace Orientation has now been made available online. Our Online Orientation site is a a self-paced course with documentation organized in Book Resources. During the orientation you will learn how to create your course site(s) and be introduced to the basic resources for communicating with students, editing your site, and managing your course content.
Before using the Online Orientation site:
Please check on the following items before enrolling in the Online Orientation (New instructors click here):
- Check that your UCSBnetID and password are active. You must have an active UCSBnetID in order to access the site. You can confirm your UCSBnetID status by logging into Identity's UCSBnetID diagnostics page.
- Verify that you are the Instructor of Record for your course. You can check this by logging into E-grades. If you see the course listed for which you would like to create a GauchoSpace course site, then you are marked as the Instructor of Record for that course.
If either of these items are not working for you, please seek assistance from your department staff.
- In-person GauchoSpace Orientation sessions are currently scheduled by appointment, for either one-on-one or departmental group training sessions. If you are interested in scheduling a training, please submit a help ticket.
- UCSB Extension Instructors: If you are an instructor with UCSB Extension, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for additional help with using GauchoSpace in an Extension course.
