Setting Up Your Course Website in CCLE

Course websites at UCLA are created within CCLE through an automated process, normally around six to eight weeks prior to the start of term.

All course sites are managed by the registrar’s system; in this case “management” means the course must exist in the registrar’s system in order for an official course site to be created in CCLE. Additionally the instructor, student enrollment, and any TA information is synchronized automatically from the registrar’s system into CCLE daily.

Even if your official course site isn’t available, we can still create a place for you to start working, and we can help you move the information over once the official site is available.

If you don’t see your site, but would like to get working on it, please email ritc@humnet.ucla.edu and we’ll create it for you.
