4 Synchronising your course/site The current version of Campus Pack is now hosted off site this means that content created for any wiki, blog or journal will not be stored on a USC server but externally. Before you can begin to use the Campus Pack tools, you will firstly need to synchronise your course or organisation with the campus pack site to enable communication between your course or site and the hosting site. This must be done in each new course or organization. If you have not synchronized your site, you will see the error message below. To synchronise your course to the Campus Pack hosting site: 1. Go to your Control Panel, click on Course Tools to expand 2. Choose Manage Campus Pack 3. Click on the link Synchronise Course The synchronisation process occurs while you will see a message saying that you can navigate away from the page, it may be useful to wait, and to confirm that the three areas have the message: Done written next to them. Hosted sites: Each time you enter a campus pack tool, it will be connecting with the off site hosted area. It may take a little time to connect, particularly the first time you enter a course and the tool. There also can sometimes be a delay, between when you have created a link to a tool, and when you can access the tool. At times you may receive an error, saying unknown content item. In these cases, you may need to wait and then refresh your screen a few times. Page 1 of 1 Updated 4 November 2011

Firstly ensure your course has been synchronised with the Campus Pack site (see separate tip sheet Synchronising your course_site) otherwise you will see the message below. 2.

BUT NOTE: any template changes will not be visible after a student/participant has begun to use their wiki. Any pages with questions or examples must be entered prior to making the wiki available. it is not easy to allow students to see one anothers wiki pages (to enable this, you would need to change the permissions of each person s wiki individually). It is geared towards assessment because when teaching staff first enter the wiki, they will see a list of the student/participant names, separated into tables for those that have started and are not yet started. It will also show the most recent activity in each person s wiki. From here, staff click on the person of interest to view the individual wiki. To add a wiki - one copy per person: 1.

42 Changing Blog permissions There are a number of different blog types that can be added to a course site, each with its own default set of permissions. This defines who can: view the blog, create entries, edit entries, delete entries etc. You can change the permissions of a blog to customise it to suit your purposes. You can also use the permissions to change how a blog is used mid way or at the end of the semester. You can most easily change permissions to: A course blog A single copy blog Making changes to the following blogs is possible, but it will involve making the changes multiple times, ie. to each person s blog or each group blog. If you have a small number of groups or students, you may wish to consider this option, but in many cases it may not be viable. Types of blogs where permissions are more difficult to change: One copy per group blog One copy per person blog A group tool blog To change permissions: 1. Enter the blog. 2. NOTE - you can firstly check who can view the blog, by looking under the title. In this case, everyone in the course can view this blog. 3. Click on the link Permissions. 2 3 Page 1 of 4 Updated 9 February 2012

43 Changing Blog permissions 4. The Permissions page opens as shown below showing a tab for each role. a. Viewers typically a read only equivalent access. b. Authors typically allowing adding to, editing and deleting some/all posts. c. Owners typically only given to teaching staff to fully manage the site. To view or make changes to a role, click on the relevant role name To check what permissions have been allocated, or to change the default permissions, click on the Customise link of the relevant role. Page 2 of 4 Updated 9 February 2012

44 Changing Blog permissions 6. The image below shows the author role and its default permission for a single copy blog. 7. Notice the default is to view any entry but edit and delete only their own entries. You may wish to change the permissions so authors cannot delete their own entries to do this untick the relevant box, then click on the Save button that you will find at the bottom of the page. 8. In addition to changing the permissions, you can also add people or groups to a role. On the Permissions page, you will find the people in the course allocated to the role. In the example below, a blog has been allocated to one group, and so that groups name appears in the Authors box. 8 Page 3 of 4 Updated 9 February 2012

45 Changing Blog permissions 9. If you wanted another group to start working with them, you could add the other group s name to the Author box. To do this, go to the Add Authors area. 10. Click on the course name. 11. A list will appear of groups, roles and people in the course. Click on the relevant group name. 12. Then click the Add button at the bottom of the third column. You should then see the groups name moved up to the Author box. 13. Make sure you click on the Save button at the bottom of the page to register any changes Page 4 of 4 Updated 9 February 2012

46 Changing Journal permissions There is only one type of journal that can be added to your course site. By default, this will allow students to see only their own posts, plus posts made by teaching staff. Most commonly there would be only one permission change that would be made to a journal. This is to allow students to see one another s posts. (thus turning it into a single copy blog). The way this would most likely be used would be to use the default permissions at the start of the semester/session (students only seeing their own plus teaching staff posts), and then if required, change the permissions so that students can see one another s posts at the end of the semester/session. This will be demonstrated below. To change permissions: 1. Enter the journal. 2. Click on the link Permissions. Page 1 of 3 Updated 9 February 2012

47 Changing Journal permissions 3. The Permissions page opens as shown below showing a tab for each role. By default for a journal there are only two rolesl a. Authors typically allowing adding to, editing and deleting some/all posts. b. Owners typically only given to teaching staff to fully manage the site To check what permissions have been allocated, or to change the default permissions, click on the Customise link of the relevant role. Page 2 of 3 Updated 9 February 2012

48 Changing Journal permissions 5. The image below shows the author role and its default permissions for a journal. 6. Notice the default is to edit their own entry, to view the instructor entries, but not to view any entry. This means students can see their own entry, the teaching staff entries, but not other students. Here is where you could change the options at the end of the semester. At the relevant time, you could open this area, and then tick the box to View Any Entry. Students would then be able to see each other s posts. 6 Page 3 of 3 Updated 9 February 2012

49 Changing Wiki permissions There are a number of different wiki types that can be added to a course site, each with its own default set of permissions. This defines who can: view the wiki, create entries, edit entries, delete entries etc. You can change the permissions of a wiki to customise it to suit your purposes. For example, while wikis are designed for collaboration, you could changes the permissions to students can see each other s work, but only edit their own. You can also use the permissions to change how a wiki is used mid way or at the end of the semester. You can most easily change permissions to: A course wiki A single copy wiki Making changes to the following wikis is possible, but it will involve making the changes multiple times, ie. to each person s wiki or each group wiki. If you have a small number of groups or students, you may wish to consider this option, but in many cases it may not be viable. Types of wikis where permissions are more difficult to change: One copy per group wiki One copy per person wiki A group tool wiki To change permissions: 1. Enter the wiki site 2. NOTE - you can firstly check who can view the wiki, by looking under the title. In this case, everyone in the course can view this wiki. 3. Choose Permissions from the list of options at the top of the page. 2 3 Page 1 of 3 Updated 9 February 2012
