I-Learn Tips

Tip: Course ID Number   When you call the FTC for assistance with a course, the employees may ask you for your "Course ID Number." This number is an identifier specific to your course. The course ID number makes it easier for FTC Employees to find your course, but is it easy for you to find? It is! Simply double-click on the "BYU-Idaho" logo in the upper right corner of the screen while inside the course (course plan, view, or gradebook). A box will open up with several groups of numbers. Look for the one that says "Course ID."

Tip: Add Test Student

As a teacher, you see everything in your course regardless of item visibility settings. To see your course as students see it, add yourself as a test student to the course. To do so:
1. Open the course
2. Click your name in the top right corner and select "Add Test Student."
You should now be able to see the course as students see it. To view this course as a test student in the future, click the "Switch to Student Home Page" button in the bottom left corner of the I-Learn homepage. Alternatively, you can click your name while you are in the course and select "View as test student."    Tip: Double-click to Edit An Item

Usually, in order to edit an item in the Course Plan, you must select the item, click edit, and then finally click "selected activity." This can be quite tedious and requires several clicks. However, you can save yourself some time and simply double-click on the item to open the editing window.   Tip: Shortcut to I-Learn

From time to time, myBYUI may be unavailable due to maintenance or another issue. However, there is another way to access I-Learn when this happens - simply go to ilearn.byui.edu. This is also a good way to save a lot of clicks! Tip: Profile Picture
Do you wish your picture showed up on things like discussion board posts? You can add your own picture by clicking on your name in the top right corner of your screen and choosing "Personal Information." Then modify the "Picture & Description" portion to add your own picture.   I-Learn Tip: Copyright & Attribution
