  6. Begin work on the course

  1. Log in to CourseCompass using the login and password setup during the CourseCompass registration process (http://www.coursecompass.com/webapps/cclogin/process.do?type=ssologinpage&new_loc=%2Fwebapps%2Fportal%2Fframeset.jsp) and select the course. Inside the course on the left-hand toolbar at the bottom there is an icon called installation wizard.  The installation wizard  will detect and install the plug-ins and players you need to view and interact with your course.  You can also use some of the computers in the IVCC Learning Commons that have the mystatlab software already installed.

  2. From within the course, select the Course Road Map link in the upper left hand corner from the course menu on the left. You are ready to get started.  Remember, if you get stuck, send me an email at Thomas_Tunnell@ivcc.edu or call me at 8152240257.
