New to Webcourses@UCF

Faculty Tools So many tools, so little space. We cleaned up the course navigation bar and combined many of our useful tools into a single page. You can now access these time-saving integrations from the Faculty Tools button, located on the course navigation menu in Webcourses@UCF. Many of the integrations featured on this page appear in the Faculty Tools page, where you can either launch the tool or learn more about the integration.

Course Navigation Menu

Most of these tools can be launched within Faculty Tools. However, they can also be enabled in your course navigation menu through the Navigation tab of Settings.

Due Date Changer This tool allows faculty to quickly change all due dates in a course from a single page. Visit the Webcourses@UCF Due Date Changer page for instructions on how to use this tool.
ProctorHub This tool is designed to assist with identity authentication and help curb cheating in online exams. The integration uses the student’s webcam technology to authenticate the identity of the student taking the test with the official ID photo in the university system. Then, the integration captures and generates a video of the student during the test-taking process. Faculty can confidentially review the recorded video.
Quiz Extensions This tool makes it quick to accommodate accessibility requests for longer quiz durations on timed quizzes in Webcourses@UCF. You can only apply extra time to existing quizzes with this tool.
UDOIT This tool enables faculty to identify accessibility issues in Webcourses@UCF. It will scan a course, generate a report, and provide resources on how to address common accessibility issues. In many cases, it will enable you to easily fix the issue.
Success Resources UCF provides many offices and services to support your students’ academic success. This tool links to selected online resources which are available to all UCF students regardless of their location or the type of course in which they are enrolled.

Success Resources now includes the Student Performance Dashboard tool: Score Estimator!
Your students can check their status in your course, see their upcoming assignments, and start planning their success.

Profile Navigation Menu

This tool can be launched within Faculty Tools. However, this tool is also accessible through the Profile navigation menu.

Class Photos This tool allows you to view and print a class roster, complete with student head shots, for each of the courses you are teaching.

Assignment Editor

Materia This tool allows direct access between Materia and Webcourses@UCF. Materia is a platform for creating customizable games and study tools for online courses. Examples include Hangman, Word Search, Matching, and Adventure.
Obojobo This integration allows direct access from the online course to Obojobo. With Obojobo, you can create focused learning objects that can be presented to students in your online course. The learning objects created in Obojobo can be linked to the gradebook in Webcourses@UCF for automatic grading.

Rich Content Editor

Action Icons This tool allows you to insert directional icons into a course that instruct students to “Do This”, “Read This”, and “Watch This”. Action icons are eye-catching images that help call attention to important information and enhance the visual appeal of your course pages.
Polls This tool allows you to create a multiple-choice poll and embed it within online course content.
Templater This tool allows you to embed Webcourses@UCF template pages into your course with one click. These template pages are an excellent start for creating course content. Select the template you want and customize the content for use in your online course.
