HLC Instuctor User Guide – April 2012 Instructor administrative rights in the HLC may be extended upon request to employees who regularly teach classes (instructors.) These rights allow instructors to manage classes. Instructors can 1) schedule classes, 2) view class registration, 3) run rosters, 4) mark attendance and 5) run selected reports. A class is a learning activity within a course. Courses are created by an HLC system administrator (not instructors), and instructors schedule classes against those courses. To request specific course development an instructor must submit a course template request form to Organizational Development and Learning Services ([email protected]). A link to this request form is located on the HLC Instructor web page. The designation of instructor rights is a manual process and must be requested. Completion of the HLC Instructor Role course (course ID = 566) is required prior to rights being extended. If you need instructor access in the HLC, register to attend the HLC Instructor Role course. These topics are included in the HLC Instructor User Guide.  Log In as an Instructor  Schedule a Class  Copy a Class  Edit a Class  View Enrollment  Register, Post‐Register or Drop Students in Classes  Manage a Waitlist  Create Class Rosters  Mark Attendance and Grade  Reports  Log Out Instructions  If You Need Assistance Log In as an Instructor

1. Click the Education tab. 2. Under the Class Management section click Manage Classes. 3. On the Search for Classes page enter any of the following: a. Class name or portion of name b. Course Identifier (course number) c. Course title or portion of title d. Date range for the class you want to grade (mark attendance) 4. Click Search. 5. Before grading your class, please note: a. Waitlisted students do not appear on the Grade view. If they attended and are not on your roster, return to Manage Registrations and force them into the class before grading your class. b. Post‐Registration: 1) Walk‐ins need to be registered before their attendance can be marked (graded). 2) To register students who attended but were not on the registration list, see “Register, Post‐Register or Drop Students in Classes” section. 3) After registering these students, remember to mark their attendance. 6. Click the Grade link to the right of the desired class. A list of registered students will appear. 7. Use the checkboxes to mark which students attended or passed. Test grades for tests given in the class are optional. Please read the definitions below very carefully. a. No Show: 1) If this class is the only learning activity in the course and the student is marked as a “No Show,” the system un‐enrolls the student and the course is removed from the student’s My Learning page. This allows the student to re‐enroll in the course and register for another class. Students who did not attend the class cannot register for another class of the same title until they have been marked as a no‐show for this class. 2) For blended learning courses which have online and class activities, the course is set up so that if a student is marked as a no‐show, he/she will not lose any online activities that he/she has completed but he/she cannot register for another class. Therefore, if there are multiple times that a student can attend a class, drop him/her from the missed class instead of marking him/her as a “No‐Show.” Then the student can register for another class day. b. Attended: If your course has a required written test and “attended” is checked, this indicates that a student was there, but has not completed the course because he/she has not passed the test. The course will not show up on the student’s transcript. In order for a student to receive credit for attending AND completing a course, they must be marked as “PASSED” and the instructor must have entered a passing score for the Grade. HLC Instructor User Guide, April 2012, page 9 c. Passed: If you check “Passed,” the system will also automatically check “Attended.” “Passed” indicates that the student ATTENDED AND COMPLETED the class. In order to give someone credit for attending a class, you must mark them as “Passed.” The course will be removed from the student’s My Learning page and be moved to the My Transcripts page. d. Grade: Grades for written tests given in the class are optional. The grade defaults to 0. Only numeric grades up to 100 can be entered. If only a grade is entered, the system assumes that the student attended and a default check appears in the Attended column. You must also place a check in the Passed column in order for the student to receive credit for the course. 8. Click Save. A green banner will appear to indicate that the class grading has been successfully submitted. 9. Grading Status: After attendance for all students is marked, click the Grading Status box (above the list of students) to indicate that grading is complete for this class. A green banner will appear to indicate that the grading status of this class is now complete. This will hide the class from future search results unless you choose to include the hidden classes. Reports
Instructors may run a number of reports in the HLC. 1. Click the Reports tab. 2. Click the name of the report you want to run. 3. Select the information that you want included on the report. a. Click the Help icon in the upper right of the screen to access HealthStream instructions for creating the report. b. Detailed instructions for creating the Course Completion‐Schedulable report can be found in the Dept Administrator User Guide and also in the HLC in the Help section. 4. Several reports can be scheduled after they are set up. a. Once a report is created and scheduled, you cannot edit the components of the report (e.g., adding a course, adding/deleting students, changing the date range of the report, etc.) b. The report schedule, however, can be edited at any time. Instructions can be found by clicking the HealthStream Help icon or by looking in the Dept Administrator User Guide. c. If a report is scheduled to automatically run at your desired time intervals, a notification email from HealthStream will come to you when the report is available. The email will include a link to the report so that you do not have to access the HLC in order to view your report. Log Out Instructions
Click on the “Log Out” link when you are ready to exit the HLC rather than ‘x’ing out of the browser. HLC Instructor User Guide, April 2012, page 10 If You Need Assistance
1. After you are logged into the HLC, you can obtain information by clicking on the Help link in the upper right of the screen. a.
