Recent Updates

  • There are two ways in which you can view your site as if you were a student: using the View Site As option, or by creating a UVaCollab guest account with a non-UVa email address (e.g. a personal gmail address), adding the guest account to your site in the Student role, and logging into UVaCollab with that guest account.

    Note: It is not possible for an Owner or Administrator of a collaboration site to use View Site As to see how it looks for site members.  To view a collaboration site as a member, you will need to add a guest account to your site as a Member and log in using that account.

  • At the end of the add/drop period, students added to course sites via waitlist rosters who are still on the waitlist (i.e., waitlisted students who have not fully enrolled in the course) will be removed from those course sites. However, instructors may also manually remove waitlist rosters from course sites.

    What are Basic site templates?

    There are two Basic site templates - one for collaboration sites and one for course sites. Both Basic collaboration and course site template are designed to provide basic features for communicating, sharing, organizing, and archiving documents, and conducting online discussions. The Basic course site template also includes features for conducting learning activities and grading.

    How do I control site access?

    In most cases, you'll want to simply accept the default access settings that a) make your site available (published) and b) restrict access to only the individuals you add to the site yourself. However, modifying your site access configuration is possible using these features.

  • By adding waitlist rosters, instructors may add all waitlisted students to their course sites automatically. Waitlist rosters may be added to course sites during the site creation process, or after a site has been created.

    When waitlists expire at the end of the add/drop period, any waitlisted students added to course sites via waitlist rosters who are still on the waitlist (i.e., waitlisted students who have not fully enrolled in the course) will be removed from those course sites.

    How do I add a class roster?

    Note: Only instructors-of-record in the Student Information System (SIS) have permission to add class rosters to course sites in UVaCollab. Instructors-of-record include anyone designated as a Primary Instructor (PI), Secondary Instructor (SI), or Teaching Assistant (TA) for a given course/section in the SIS. Roles assigned in UVaCollab course sites do not apply in this case - only roles in the SIS determine who can view and add class rosters to sites in UVaCollab.
