This content has been archived, and is no longer maintained by Indiana University. Resources linked from this page may no longer be available or reliable.
Oncourse is retired. For details, see About the Oncourse retirement.
To complete these procedures, you must be assigned a role having the necessary permissions. If you're not sure what your role is, see the "Role" column in the Roster tool. For permissions, see ARCHIVED: What can I do in read-only Oncourse?

You can edit the information others see about your site.

You can do this either from Site Setup within the site in question, or from Worksite Setup within My Workspace; see ARCHIVED: Editing your site information if you've removed the Site Setup tool.

  1. In your site, from the menubar, click Site Setup.

    Alternatively, from the menubar in My Workspace, click Worksite Setup, check the box next to the site you wish to revise, and then click Edit.

    Although you can check multiple boxes, you can only edit information about one site at a time.
  2. Click Edit Site Information.
  3. In the "Site Title:" field, edit the title of your site.

    Note: You cannot edit the title of a course site.

  4. If desired, you can set an easy-to-remember alias in place of the siteID (see ARCHIVED: Determining your site's siteID). To do so, in the text area to the right of "Add Site URL", enter the text you'd like to use.
  5. If desired, you can change the default language for your site. To do so, in the text area to the right of "Site Language", select the language you'd like to use.
  6. In the "Description:" field, type information that you want displayed in your site's Worksite Information box. For more, see ARCHIVED: Editing content in the Worksite Information box.
  7. In the "Short description:" field, type information to display about your site in the public site list, if applicable; see ARCHIVED: Controlling access to your site.
  8. If the "Icon URL:" field is available, you can choose an icon to display on the site, which will appear above your menubar. Enter a web address to the location of the image file; the image should be small (approximately 120 pixels wide by 60 pixels high).
  9. Type the appropriate information in the "Site Contact Name:" and "Site Contact Email:" fields, and then click Continue.
  10. On the confirmation screen, click Finish. To cancel your changes, click Cancel.
