eClass is organized into courses. These are most commonly linked to Bear Tracks credit sections but can include sandbox courses, resource courses, and non-credit courses. Once you log in, you will be brought to your eClass Home page. Every open course that you are enrolled in is listed in the eClass Overview block in the centre panel.

If you are a student, you should only see the current term's courses and any others that the instructor has chosen to make available to you.

If you are an instructor, you will see all term's courses, regardless of their availability to student. If a course is greyed out in this list, it is not available for students - only courses with green active links can be accessed by your students. For more information on how to change the availability of your course for your students see: Controlling Student Access to Your Course.

To access course materials, click on the title of any course. This will take you to that course's main page which will list links to any materials or activities available.

You can navigate within eClass and within specific courses in three ways:

  • Using the course content itself (clicking on the various resource and activity links within the course):

  • New in June 2022 - Completion Tracking

    The old check boxes for marking activities complete have been replaced with two new ways to track completion:

    If there are no completion conditions set, a student may mark an activity complete by clicking the button labelled "Mark As Done":
    Button: Mark as Done

    If completion conditions have been set, activities will be labelled with the completed and incomplete conditions as in the following example:
    Label: Completion Conditions
    For more examples, see Completion Tracking - For Students
  • Using the Navigation drawer located to the left edge of your course content area. Note that if you don't use the navigation drawer (or don't see it), you can use the icon at the top left to hide it (or show it):

  • By using the previous and next links or the Jump to... dropdown navigation tool at the bottom of any resource or activity:

  • Within courses users will see a 'back to top' icon that they can use to return to the top of the page:
