Course Shell Requests
To have an EMU Online (eCollege) course shell set up for your class, send an email request including the CRN number to firstname.lastname@example.org, preferably more than four weeks before the start of the term. For more information about EMU Online, including access to an online course shell demo, visit https://secure.ecollege.com/emu/.
EMU Online features include
- Threaded discussions
- Easily embedded mutlimedia elements
- Course email tool
- Doc sharing (for circulating PDFs and other files)
EMU Online works well for providing students with easy access to materials for download via Doc Sharing, but the eReserves system is also commonly used for this purpose when none of the other EMU Online tools are in use. eReserves is a separate system--not related to EMU Online (eCollege).
