The Staff Information page allows Instructors to post information about themselves, teaching assistants, and guest speakers. The page gives users a resource to look up names, email addresses, office hours, and photographs of course instructors. There is also an option to create folders. This is a good way to organize this section if there are a number of TA’s or Lab Instructors.

More Information

Q: Why would I want to set up a Faculty Information page?

A: This is a great place to put important information such as office hours and phone number, but it also gives you an opportunity to put some information about yourself – either professional or personal – for your students to see. This is especially helpful in a completely online course where you may never actually meet your students face-to-face.
