Management of Course Materials

Posting Policies and Guidelines
Please turn in your notes and/or handouts to the Technical Support Center office (OHE 142) before or after your class. Fill out the proper Document Submission form provided by the Technical Support Center with your instructions regarding scanning and posting. If you have digital notes please post them directly to your course page on D2L Brightspace.

You may also email the file to dentsc@usc.edu at least 24 hours before expected post time, if it must be converted to SMART Board or PDF prior to posting. If you are emailing a file, please provide specific instructions along with the course number and the file name.
Lecture notes will be posted in your respective weekly course module on your course page.

SMART Board Electronic Notes
To facilitate the posting process, after your class please save your SMART Board notes in your course folder (ex. EE 555) located in My Documents folder on the desktop of the classroom computer. The Technical Support Center will convert your SMART Board file into a universally readable Adobe Acrobat PDF document. The PDF document will be posted in the appropriate weekly module of your D2l Brightspace course page on the same business day.

Course Material Conversion
Instructors often need support converting older notes into modern, digital formats. The Instructional Support Center is prepared to assist online teachers with this process. Simply visit our offices in OHE 142 with your materials for a consultation on how we can help you.
