 SharePoint: My Courses

EPCC is introducing a new service for faculty and students to replace the Smart Start Network. My Courses is a Microsoft SharePoint template designed with faculty and students in mind. My Courses will be paired with Live@edu; an email application that will help students use the Internet for collaboration on campus, in the classroom, and in their daily lives.

To get started go to your SharePoint site at My EPCC. You will see all classes assigned to you. Select a class and create a course. If you try to access your SharePoint site from home or another location you will be prompted to login. See the quick reference card below for more information.
