Din kurswebb är sidorna för en kurs du prenumererar på. Du väljer sedan vilka omgångar/grupper inom kursen du vill ha information från. Är du registrerad på en kursomgång sköts prenumeration och val av kursomgäng automatiskt åt dig. Vill du ändra något av detta gör du det under Mina inställningar.

När du är inloggad på din kurswebb ser du:
  • Kursöversikt, nyheter och schema med information som är filtrerat utifrån dina valda omgångar/grupper inom kursen
  • Allmänna sidor för hela kursen
  • Kurswikin som är sidor som alla, lärare och studenter, kan skapa och redigera
  • Sidor som hör till de omgångar/grupper inom kursen du valt eller som valts för dig
