    Who is my instructor for my Photoshop course? starting Monday Sept 14th.
  • Jennifer Frost says:

    Thanks for the note. Classes are visible on the first day of the semester. If you need to get in touch with your professor before the first day of class, you will find their name in Access Sheridan, My Student Centre.
    I hope that helps. Please let me know and good luck on your first day of class! – Jennifer

  • Amrita says:

    Is it possible to view the courses prior to the actual star date? I need to contact my professors however I am unable to as there’s no course showing up…it’s rather frustrating how students don’t have the opportunity to get ready for their courses or to contact their professors prior to the first class.

  • Jennifer Frost says:

    Thank you for the comment, please send me an email with your name and student number and what class you are enrolled in. I can take a look, I would also recommend getting in touch with your instructor as well, they just might not have added content yet.

    My course just disappeared from Slate. I am registered in the class and I was just about to upload my first discussion assignment. It was available this morning. How do I get the course back?

  • Jennifer Frost says:

    You will lose access to your courses, 1 week after classes have ended. If you need to access anything, you would need to contact the instructor directly. Thank you!

  • Nathan Lapp says:

    Is there a way to view your past courses to see what marks you got on assignments?

    If the course has started and you still are not seeing it, please let us know. Thank you!

  • Jennifer Frost says:

    Thank you for the comment. You cannot organize the classes by date, but if you PIN the courses they will appear at the top of your screen. I hope that helps. Please let us know. Thank you!

    I have currentlyed Enrolled into the Human Resource Management program Online and the course has not been added to my page yet. Can someone advise if there is a reason for this?

  • Paymon Sani says:

    How can I change the default view to show the courses in descending order by date?

  • Jennifer Frost says:

    Thank you for the note Rasha. When the course ends you will lose access to it in SLATE. But your instructor will be posting your final grades into Access Sheridan, so watch out for it there. If you have any additional questions, please let us know. Have a great day!

    I enrolled in a course MGMT79001 Project Management, Fundamentals of
    Message and now link to the course has disappeared and the instructor has just posted the grades today and I need to access my grade but unable because of access to the course expired. Please advise on how I can access my grade for my final exam

  • Jennifer Frost says:

    Emily,
    Thank you for the comment. I looked into your issue and it appears there is an issue in how the course was set up, it is not on your end. I have contacted the instructor via voicemail and by email.
    You are more than welcome to contact her directly to see if the situation is resolved, but once she makes the change, you will have access to your course.

    I hope that helps. If you have any other questions. Please let me know.

  • Emily says:

    Hi there, I was approved for my PLAR access on Monday, my teacher emailed me through slate. However it is not coming up in my courses, i cannot seem to find a way to access the material. IT has told me different things, to email the professor, to wait 24-48 hours (which the professor has said should not be the case) I am super stuck and my deadline is tomorrow.

  • Jennifer Frost says:

    Thank you for the comment Chantel. If you are an instructor and you have been assigned the class in Peoplesoft you will have access to your class in SLATE. If you have been enrolled in more than 26 classes you will need to search for your 1161 offerings, they will not automatically appear on your list.

    If you are a student, you will not have access to your classes until the first day of class.

    I hope that helps, if you have any other questions, please feel free to contact me directly.

  • Chantel Amaral says:

    Hello, I remember for fall semester my courses were up on slate a week before school started. And for this winter i do not see them yet. Are they supposed to be up and there is something wrong with my account. thanks,

  • Jennifer Frost says:

    Thank you for the comment Tyler.

    If you enrolled in the class today, Friday or over the weekend, you will be loaded into SLATE tonight. You will have access in the morning. The general rule is around 24 hours after you have been enrolled in the class. (not including the weekend).

    I hope that helps. If you have any other questions, please let me know.

  • Tyler says:

    I enrolled in a class late, after it started, and do not yet see it in my course programs on SLATE. How long should it take to show up?

  • Brian Smith says:

    Thank you for your comment. I would recommend contacting the program support officer to confirm your enrolment in the course.

  • Nabat says:

    I’m taking a class offered by UTM (CCT412) and I got into the class Monday night and the course is still isn’t up on slate.

  • Jennifer Frost says:

    Amanda,
    Thank you for the email. If you are a student, you will not see the class until the start date. If you are in the instructor you will see the course 3-4 weeks prior to the start date. If you are indeed the instructor and you still do not see your course, please contact me directly and I will research the issue further for you.

    If you have any other questions, please let me know. Thank you!

  • Amanda says:

    My courses for CAPS don’t have a start date until September 8th 2015, but up above it says that courses are available 3-4 weeks prior to semester start date. When will I have access ot my courses? I’d like to flip through and get a head start.

  • Jennifer Frost says:

    Sema,
    Thank you for the comment. You are not able to remove items from this list. But there are a few work arounds that might help. Within the course selector, you can pin your current semester classes for easy access. Also, under the My Courses widget once you get to a certain amount of enrolments, (26 courses) you will only see your top 10 accessed courses. Those two options might help you access your classes quicker. But the classes will always be searchable within SLATE if you are enrolled in the class/virtual community/workbench.

    The other option you have is to deactivate the course through the self-service tool. Here is the link for the instructions: https://ltsa.sheridancollege.ca/learning-technology-portal/course-management/faculty-self-service/
    Once you have deactivated the course, you will not see it on your list. But you are able to go back into the Self-Service tool at any time if you need to update the permissions.

    I hope that helps. If you have any other questions, please let us know.

    I’m enrolled in HEAL70026 and in SLATE when I click on the “Select a course…” drop down menu it says “you do not have access to any courses” – and I have documents I need to download before our first class on Sunday morning. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

  • Jennifer Frost says:

  • Jana Wells says:

    Nancy,

    I see that you have accessed the course. Is this still an issue?

  • Azar mirsalimi says:

    To avoid all the confusion, it would have been great to give access to the students and teachers based on their logins / roles.
    I am a student and wondering why I can see all the instructions for the teachers!

  • Jana Wells says:

    Are you a student or a faculty?

    If courses are loaded in Slate 3-4 weeks before the start of the course then how come I don’t have any courses available? My course starts in 11 days.

  • Jana Wells says:

    You can copy it to your other sections. Instructions can be found here: https://ltsa.sheridancollege.ca/learning-technology-portal/course-management/importing-exporting-and-copying-between-courses/copying-between-courses/

    If you do not want to copy the entire course when you get to the step on copying all components select individual components and select quizzes and questions library to copy just the quiz and questions.

  • Lynn Bell says:

    If I create an item (for example, a quiz), can I access it from the other sections that I teach (total 4), or do I have to create it from scratch in each section?
