WORKSITE SETUP provides information about the sites to which you currently belong or may join. If you have a role that allows it, you can use this tool to make changes to information about the site, tools available in the site, and access to the site. You can also create and publish the site using the Worksite Setup tool.
Many of the functions of the Worksite Setup tool mirror those of the Site Info tool; Worksite Setup is available through Home, whereas Site Info is available in each site.
If you don't have the appropriate permissions, you will only see the information about the site published by the site owner in Worksite Setup.
Go to WORKSITE SETUP in your Home site
Click New on the top-left side of the page.
Choose to either create a course or project site.
Select an Academic Term (Course Site only).
Creating a course site for an official Western course, you must select the appropriate Academic Term associated for the course.
Instructors must be officially enrolled in a course roster in the Office of the Registrar in order to select an academic term and create the course in OWL.
Click the Continue button.
Select the course section (Course Site only).
Select the checkbox beside the course section you want to create.
Note: OWL will automatically detect if a site already exists; if this is the case, it will alert you with a message. If you would still like to proceed with a new site, click the 'Select Anyway' link.
Multiple Sections & Cross-listed Sites
Selecting multiple course sections will combine multiple rosters into one site. Combining multiple sections or course rosters can be helpful if you are teaching a course with multiple labs, tutorials, or a cross-listed course.
