Set Up Faculty Course Center


Information and features vary according to the roles to which you belong and the permissions associated with those roles. For more information, contact your module manager or your campus support team.

J1 Desktop Setup

You can configure for the display of courses and textbook entry.

Controls can be set for the display of courses in LMS, Student features, and Faculty features. You may want to display some courses for faculty to access in the Faculty Course Center feature but not be available in the Course Schedules feature for registration.

  1. Open the Courses window to the Course tab.

  2. Select a course.

  3. Click the Web subtab.

  4. In the Show On Web drop-down, select one of the following options:

    • LMS & Web for Students and Faculty (all)

    • LMS & Web for Students Only

    • LMS & Web for Faculty Only

    • Web for Students Only

    • Web for Faculty Only

    • Web for STudents and Faculty

    • None

    • LMS

If you allow textbook entry via the Faculty Course Center feature, one of two things happens.

  • When a user adds a textbook that already exists in the Textbook Definition table in J1 Desktop, a new row for this textbook is saved in the Textbook Table (Courses and Textbooks window).

  • When a user adds a textbook that has not been defined in J1 Desktop, a new row for this textbook is first saved to the Textbook Definition table and then a row is created in the Textbook Table; and, if cost and prices are entered, then one or more rows are created in the Textbook Cost Price table. J1 Desktop provides default data that the feature uses to create the Textbook Cost Price table rows. For each Pricing column in the feature, one row is created for each of the following:

Feature Textbook Column

Cost/Price Type

JICS Cost/Price Type

JN - JICS New Book

N - New Book

Used ($)

JU - JICS Used Book

U - Used Book
