About the UBlearns Class Setup Tool

The UBlearns Class Setup tool allows instructors to enable UBlearns class sites, set dates for student access and combine class enrollments.

Instructors can also delete past-term class sites and extend enrollment for individual students or for the entire class.

Updates made through the UBlearns Class Setup tool will take effect within three hours.

Enabling Class Sites and Setting Student Access Dates

Please be aware that students are not automatically notified when they are added to a UBlearns class.

  1. Go to the UBlearns Class Setup tool or click the Class Setup tab from within UBlearns.
  2. Click on current or upcoming term under Class by Term.
  3. Click Edit Class (pencil icon) for the class you want to edit.
  4. Click Enabled for UBlearns Status.
  5. Choose an access date (the date students are automatically enrolled in the class) for Set Student Access Date.
  6. Click Update Class when finished.

Setting Roster Options

By default, UBlearns does not display students who have resigned or withdrawn from your class, but your MyUB class list does. Use the UBlearns Class Setup tool to display these students in your UBlearns class.

  1. Go to the UBlearns Class Setup tool or click the Class Setup tab from within UBlearns.
  2. Click on current or upcoming term under Class by Term.
  3. Click Edit Class (pencil icon) for the class you want to edit.

  5. Click Update Class when finished.

Combining Class Enrollments

When combining classes, choose the class you want to be the parent; other classes will be considered children.

The parent class determines the class preferences (including class title and enrollment date) and is the class that will be displayed in UBlearns. Children class enrollments will be added to the parent class.

  • Combine your own classes before the term has started:
    1. Go to the UBlearns Class Setup tool or click the Class Setup tab from within UBlearns.
    2. Click on upcoming term under Class by Term.
    3. Click Edit Class (pencil icon) for the class you want to be the parent class.
    4. Check Is Combined for the classes you want to combine with the parent class.
    5. Click Update Class.

  4. Check individual students or Name for the entire class.
  5. Click Update Enrollments when finished.

Deleting Class Sites

This action will remove the class and delete all of its contents from UBlearns. Once performed, this cannot be undone.
