How do I get setup on Web For Faculty?
To arrange setup of your Web for Faculty account email email@example.com, quoting the following information:
- Your MTU staff ID number.
- The module codes and titles of the modules you require, e.g. INFO 6006: Introduction to Computing.
- In the case of each module, indicate the codes for the programme(s) on which these modules are being taught, e.g. KCOMP_7_Y1
You will then be sent an email from the Web for Faculty office, giving you a CRN (Course/Class Registration Number) for the module you are teaching. THE CRN is generated by Web for Faculty office and it is an identifier code for a class group taking a module. The CRN is an important number as there will be situations where a particular module will be taught to a number of different class groups either together in the one sitting or separately. While there is the one module code there can be many CRNs associated with it.
