All courses receive a "moodle shell" on a site called "Cougar Courses." This is akin to "Blackboard" and allows you, even if you have no online instructional component, to offer students ready access to syllabus, assignments, and other course information as well as a means for you to send announcements (through the "news" forum) to your students in a particular course.
Please see the IITS webpage or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any assistance or visit them on the 2nd floor of Kellogg library for any tutorial assistance.

There are two very important reasons why the proper travel paperwork should always be filed on your behalf before you travel on University business. The first reason is to ensure you are covered on the University's liability policy in case of an accident. The second reason is that the University will not reimburse you for your travel expenses if you take a business-related trip without informing them first. The main reason for this is that the University needs verification from the Department that the funds for your travel exist and are available fo your use.
The form that needs to be filed for you before you travel is called the Travel Authorization Form (TAF) or more affectionately referred to as "the green form." In order for us to process a TAF for you, we will need you to submit the following online form at least 3-4 weeks before you travel domestically and 60 days before you travel internationally: Travel Form .
If you could please collect all of your travel receipts in an envelope and give them to Maria Clements as soon as you return, we will process your travel claim and try to get your reimbursement out to you as soon as possible. Reimbursement generally takes three to four weeks from the time we submit the claim.
