Once you've logged in to UR Courses, a list of the courses you are currently enrolled in should appear. Click on a course title link to enter the desired course.
If you do not see any courses currently available in UR Courses but believe you should, contact your instructor to confirm they are using UR Courses for the current semester. If you find you are still missing access to one of your courses, contact IT.Support@uregina.ca.
Each course is typically split into two or three columns organized with extra resources on the right and left sections and the course content, assignments, and activities in the middle section.
The right and left columns of the course page usually include links to resources, such as upcoming events, recent activity, etc. Take some time in the beginning to familiarize yourself with these elements as they won't nesecarily be the same for each course.
The top area of the Course Homepage contains the University logo, your name with various personal options including a logout option, the course title and links for navigation from the Dashboard to the current page. Each link can then be clicked to access a previous section or page of the UR Course site.
To access any resource or activity within UR Courses, you typically just follow links found within the content area of the course homepage, or by navigating through the Activities block (if available).
Note: To get back to the course homepage, click on the Course Title in the top links, and not the Home link. The Home link will take you back to the main page that lists all of the courses you have access to. You can also access course activities, resources, or your other courses by using the Navigation block, typically located on the left side of the page.
The Hide/Expand Option
In the top right corner of each block there will be a minus [-] sign by default. Clicking the [-] sign allows each student to hide a block from view. The title of the block still appears. So, if there is a block that you don't use very often and it is taking up space you can hide the contents of the block. Click the plus [+] sign to expand the block again.
You also have the option of docking a block on the left side of the page. This gives you the option of collapsing the block from view, but you are still able to quickly access the block's content when desired.
To collapse a block to the dock, click the less than [<] icon in the top right corner of the desired block.
Depending on how a course is organized by an instructor, you may have all topics or weeks displayed down the middle section of the course homepage or they may display as one section per page, with navigation links for moving back and forth. If the topics are collapsed, you can click on the title to expand each topic.
