SELF-SERVICE TUTORIAL - PART A
With SacCT Self Service, faculty can personally setup their own SacCT course(s), add content, and enroll students at their own convenience. For the Fall 2012 term, you may choose in which learning management system to activate your courses, SacCT/WebCT or SacCT /Blackboard. In the Spring 2013 term, you will only be able to activate your courses in SacCT /Blackboard.
If you are looking for instruction on activating courses in the SacCT/WebCT system, please refer to the SacCT Help Site.
This self paced tutorial will go step by step through the three main activities required to get your course(s) ready for use. It's not necessary to complete all three sections at one time, but please remember to go in the order listed:
- Activate course(s)
- Add course content
- Enroll students
Please note: Adding course content prior to enrolling students is not absolutely necessary in SacCT . We recommend that you add content before enrolling students simply to prevent premature access to course materials.
A. Activate course(s)
- Open a web-browser, then type the line below in the address bar:
- Once you see the "Welcome to the Sac CT Self-Service tool" page, please read the information and then click the Log In link.
- Enter your Saclink username and password, then click the Log In button.
When you have successfully logged in, you will be taken to the "Welcome to SacCT Self-Service" page. This page enables you to select a semester for which you want to activate your SacCT course(s).
- Click the dropdown menu and then click a semester. When you've selected a semester, click the Next button.
A list of the semester's courses will appear below the Next button.
- Click a checkbox (you can select more than one at a time) for a corresponding course, then click the Activate Selected Courses in Blackboard button.
Upon clicking the Activate Selected Courses in Blackboard button, any courses which had a checked box next to them will now be listed as "Activated" and identified by which LMS they are located.
The course(s) are actively being prepared and will be available immediately in SacCT . You will see a pop-up box on your screen confirming the activation. Click OK to make the box disappear.
- Login to SacCT to view your newly activated course(s).
Visit www.csus.edu/sacct, and click the "Login" button. Using your SacLink account, log into SacCT to see if your new course(s) are in the Course List.
Once the courses are visible in SacCT you may move onto section B.
