This content has been archived, and is no longer maintained by Indiana University.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.
Important:
Oncourse is retired. For details, see About the Oncourse retirement.
Note:
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 add a text description to 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's 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.

    Note:
    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 "Description:" field, enter a brief text description of your site. This text will appear in the Worksite Information box on your site's home page.
  4. Click Continue, and then click Finish.

Note: Your Worksite Information box may be configured to display a web page instead of your site description. If so, you will need to change your Worksite Information settings. For more, see ARCHIVED: Editing content in the Worksite Information box.
