Dear Teaching Assistant,
UBC is very excited about our new learning management system, Connect and all that it has to offer to enhance the teaching and learning experience. Connect is a central, secure website that instructors may use to post important course-related info and activities like lecture slides, assignments, quizzes and marks. It replaces the WebCT Vista system and you may hear Connect being referred to as BlackBoard.
You can access Connect by logging in to connect.ubc.ca using your CWL ID. If you do not have access to the course you are a TA for, please ask your instructor to fill out the course customization form at http://www.ubc.ca/okanagan/ctl/elearning/toolkit/blackboard.html.
Where to find help:
A number of resources are available to assist you in your capacity as a teaching assistant:
Online tutorials at connect.ubc.ca under Instructor Resources
Drop-in Wednesdays between 3-4 pm in the Centre for Teaching and Learning (SCI 200)
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your questions
Please include the course and instructor you are a TA for
Connect training will be provided as part of the TA Workshop Buffet on Saturday September 15,2012. Please visit http://www.ubc.ca/okanagan/ctl/tagrad.html for more information.
