Creating Your MyBradyLab Course From your MyBradyLab Courses page you will create your course sections. You can make copies of your course, and you can also allow for other instructors to copy your course. See section on Program Administrator /Coordinator if you are a Program Administrator or Program Coordinator to learn more about your specific options. Best Practice: Set up a separate course ID for each section of the course that you are teaching, whether you choose to do this with a coordinator course with sections or by copying your standard course. Managing your gradebook and due dates will be much easier for you. See Create/Copy Additional Courses and Sections to learn more copying courses and creating sections. To create your MyBradyLab New Design course: • Click Create your New Course or Create/Copy Course located in the MyLab/Mastering New Design area.

On the Create or Copy a Course page, search for course materials: • Select Search Course Materials. Enter the textbook Author, Title or ISBN OR • Select Browse by Discipline. Click the dropdown menu to locate your discipline. You can leave All Publishers selected or narrow you search by selecting a specific imprint. • Click Go. Review the contents listed under the titles for the types of content included in the course material. • Click Select Course Materials

When the course reaches its maximum end date, it enters a 3-month course retirement phase. At the end of this phase, email alerts remind you that your course is flagged for deletion, and provide information on how to make a copy of your course for reuse after the original course is deleted. Best Practice: Leave the course start date default for the current date and set the course end date a month or so after the last day of classes to allow students time to complete makeup work, or to allow you time to copy course materials you plan to use again. 6. Under Make Available For Other Instructors To Copy, select: • Available For Copy to allow other instructors to copy your course. • Unavailable For Copy if you do not want other instructors to be able to copy your course. 7. Click Create Course Now. A Confirmation-Request Received page will provide you with your unique Course ID, usually consisting of your last name and five numbers (for ex: smith12345). Course IDs also appear below each course name in the MyLab / Mastering New Design courses list on the courses page. You can print this page for your records. At the bottom of the page, click Back to your Courses page.

On your MyBradyLab Courses page the clock icon indicates that your course is being prepared. When your course is ready you will receive an email. The course is created in as little as an hour or up to one day, depending on the size of the course materials you selected and the number of course creation requests in the queue. You do not need to stay signed in or be connected to the Internet while your course is created.

How the Gradebook works All gradable items in your course are automatically represented by a gradebook column. Assessments that are auto-graded by MyBradyLab will automatically record to the Gradebook. If you have assignments that are subjective in nature (short answer, discussion, or essay), they will have a column in the gradebook, but require manual grading. You can also manually grade other items you have identified as gradable or gradebook-only items to add points for things like participation and attendance. There is also a Grade to Date Column that will track each student’s cumulative percentage grade in the course.

You can also review the student’s submission by clicking on View Details. You can navigate through the entire list of assignments by clicking the Previous Assignment and Next Assignment buttons at the bottom. This is a great tool if you need to quickly assess your class results on a specific assignment or if you need to add or edit grades for more than one student on the same assignment.

And use the Grade by Assignment view for the best way to enter a group of grades for a single assignment. You do not have to enter grades for assessments (quizzes and exams). As soon as students complete the quiz or exam, the scores appear in your gradebook. However, if a quiz or exam includes essays and/or short answer questions, you do need to grade these questions. Tip: If you’d like to change a student’s score on an automatically graded assessment, for example to give extra points or make a deduction, follow these same steps. To enter student grades in the Gradebook Overview on a per student basis: 1. Click Gradebook in the course menu. Your gradebook appears with the following columns:  Name: Lists student names alphabetically. The list of students is the same as the course roster.  Grade to Date: Grade average. The grade to date is calculated by dividing the total points earned by the points attempted.

You retrieve the assignment from your Submissions area, grade and comment, and then return it. 3. When needed, you can coach a student by providing multiple responses to help clear areas of confusion. Submissions are especially useful if you'd like students to submit multiple revisions of an assignment. 4. After you finish reviewing each student's submission, you enter the grade in the Gradebook.

Course Content Course Content houses all of the assignable content student study tools. Within each Module, we ask the students to Read, Review & Apply. Read The textbook that corresponds to this course is available as an electronic text. The full eText is an exact replica of the printed textbook, with additional features such as links to animations and videos, highlighting, note-taking and bookmarks. If you did not purchase the full eText, you may do so by clicking on the eText tab. Review Do you want to hold your students accountable for the course material and ensure they are better prepared for class? The Pre- and Post-Tests within the Study Plans are highly recommended activities for your MyBradyLab course. They can be assigned to hold your students accountable for the material and can help prepare them for chapter assessments, midterms and/or final exams. They consist of a Pre-Test, Personalized Study Materials, and Post-Test. The customized study materials—with complete remediation activities—are generated based on students’ results of a pre-test and organized by learning objective. Study Plans tag incorrect questions from the pre-test to the appropriate textbook learning objective, helping students focus on the topics they need help with. After students complete the remediation activities and self check for all learning objectives assigned in the study material, they take a post-test to see the concepts they’ve mastered or the areas where they still may need extra help. Since the Study Plan is meant as a remedial activity, students have unlimited attempts on the post-tests. MyBradyLab reports the pre-test and post-test study plan results to the gradebook. Based on these scores, the instructor can adapt course material to suit the needs of individual students or the entire class. Best Practice: Some instructors like to have students complete the chapter Study Plan before the section is covered in class. This assures the instructor that students are familiar with the material and ready for your lecture (if you have a traditional lecture component).

When a student successfully registers and enrolls in your MyBradyLab course, they are active. During the add/drop period, you might have students that drop the course and need to be removed from your MyBradyLab course. Removing a student from your MyBradyLab course is handled by changing the student Status to Inactive in the course roster. This will remove the student from your gradebook and any class averages.

Section Instructors/Teaching Assistants (Optional)

Whether you are enabling another instructor to act as the Section Instructor to your course or promoting a student to the role of Teaching Assistant (TA), you will need to obtain a student access code for them. They will enroll as students, and then you promote them to section instructors from the course roster. When you update the role to Section Instructor, you will also have the option to grant them permission to access and edit the Course Roster. You can obtain student access codes for section instructors from your sales representative or from Pearson Technical Support. Note: The role Section Instructor is used synonymously for Teaching Assistant in the Course Roster. Enable section instructors to access your course You can allow one or more section instructors to access your course. You would use this option to add co-instructors to your course or if you have set up courses in your own account to be taught by other instructors (i.e. adjuncts). Note: Only instructors can allow section instructors to access their courses— section instructors cannot allow other section instructors to access courses unless you grant them permission to edit the course roster. Promote a student to the role of Teaching Assistant (Section Instructor) You can promote one or more students to Teaching Assistant (Section Instructor), so they can help you perform tasks. This could include creating assessments, managing the gradebook, or making other modifications to your course. Note: If the student registering as a teaching assistant is already enrolled in the course as a student, he or she needs to register again with a NEW login name using another Student Access Code. In this case, the teaching assistant will have a student login name and a teaching assistant login name.

If you have courses in the retirement process, you will receive three consecutive email reminders, including instructions on how to preserve or export your course materials.

Course Set-up

When you originally create your MyBradyLab course, you set a course end date. As the course end date nears, you will notice an hour glass icon next to your course title in the courses list indicating the course is about to end. When you see this icon in your courses list, you have two options:

Program Administrators and Coordinators Program Administrators and Coordinators often have different needs and objectives than an individual instructor. If you are a program administrator or coordinator creating courses for other instructors, you have the choice to create all of the course sections for every instructor in your own account or create one standard individual course with copy settings set to “available to copy”. Read below to understand which option might better suit your needs. Create All Sections in your Own Account Choosing to create all of the sections in your own account allows you the ability to monitor and analyze results from all sections of the course. Both you and the section instructors will have access to the course as an instructor, but section instructors will not have access to the course roster unless you enable that privilege when you upgrade their role. This option is the best choice for administrators and coordinators that need to monitor and analyze results from all courses. In this scenario, you would create a standard course, set up the course and finalize your customizations and organization, and then create multiple copies for each section being taught using the Make Multiple Sections or Copies of a Course feature. Once the sections are created, you can divvy out the corresponding course IDs to each instructor. See Section Instructors/Teaching Assistants for instructions to enable the instructors’ access to these section course IDs. Best Practice: When creating multiple copies of your course at one time, name the courses with identifiers such as the instructors’ last names or the meeting days/time for the course. Standard course set to “available to copy” Choosing to create a standard course for your instructors to copy is fast and easy, but you lose the ability to monitor each section. This option is the best choice for administrators and coordinators that are only responsible for course set up and do not have a need to monitor and analyze results from all sections. In this scenario, you would create a standard course and set the copy settings to “available to copy”, set up the course and finalize your customizations and organization, and then simply give each instructor the course ID to make a copy of this course in their own instructor account. See Create/Copy Additional Courses and Sections for instructions.
