Adding a Faculty Member to a Course

Last Updated: Aug 06, 2015 01:53PM UTC
Faculty members are stored in your Author Tool Kit, and are added to the Course Information section of your course.

To add a faculty member to your course, click the “Add Faculty Member" button to open the Author Tool Kit. You will see all previously entered faculty members in your Author Tool Kit, if any. 

To search for an existing faculty member, enter part of his/her name in the search field and click on the  button.

To add the faculty member to your course, click the "Add to Course" button. 

To change an existing faculty member, click the yellow arrow next to that entry. You now have the option to edit the faculty member, or delete them if they have not been assigned to any of your previous courses. 

To add a new faculty member, click the  button. Fill in the faculty member's information, including his or her name, profession and biography in the commentary fields provided. 

To add an image to the faculty bio, place your cursor where you would like to add the image and click the image icon. Click the Browse Server button, then the Upload button to browse for your image. Locate the image file on your computer and click Open. Once the image has been added to the server, double-click on the image to add it to the faculty bio field. 
You will have the option to re-size the image and set the alignment. A best practice is to use images no larger than 150 pixels wide. Once satisfied with your adjustments, click the OK button. You can double click on the image to make further adjustments.
Click the Save button to add the faculty member to the database. You will now see the faculty member listed in the Author Tool Kit. Click the Add to Course button to add the faculty member to your course.

If you have more than one faculty member added to your course, you can re-order the listing of faculty members by clicking the up and down arrows next to each faculty member's name. You can also designate the course leader by clicking the radio button that appears to the left of the faculty member's name. You can assign faculty members to appear in banners on Freeform pages as well. 

You also have the option to either edit the faculty member’s information (for this course only) by clicking the  icon, or you can make global changes to his/her information in the Author Tool Kit (re-add the faculty member to your existing courses to apply the edits. 

To delete the faculty member from a course, click the  button. This will not delete the faculty member from the Author Tool Kit.
