CoursePlus is Changing Its Web Address on August 6, 2015

Over the past few years, CoursePlus has evolved to serve the needs of courses offered not just by the School of Public Health, but by multiple divisions at the University. It is a system no longer specific to the School of Public Health.

On August 6, 2015, CoursePlus will make the move from the web address to While the servers and networking gear behind CoursePlus will remain in the JHSPH data center, and JHSPH IT will continue to support CoursePlus, the web address will change.

The change should be seamless for everyone. Everything will continue to work as before. However, bookmarks and links that point to must be updated to point to instead. Bookmarks and links that point to will continue to work for six months after this change. After that time, will cease to exist and those bookmarks and links will no longer work.

If you have questions about this upcoming change, please contact CTL Help!

Hiding or Showing the Display of an Academic Year on the My Courses Page

As each academic year progresses, the listing of all of your courses on the "My Courses" page in CoursePlus grows ever longer. If you're faculty or staff, you also begin to see course listings for the upcoming year fairly early in the current academic year. Either way, this ends up causing a lot more scrolling down the "My Courses" page to get to the academic year listings you most frequently access.

CoursePlus will now remember when you close or open the course listings for an academic year between visits to the "My Courses" page. So if listings for the next academic year are getting in your way, you can simply close it and CoursePlus will keep it closed the next time you visit the "My Courses" page or sign into CoursePlus. 

The previous academic year listing will remain closed by default, just as it has previously in CoursePlus, but you can keep it permanently open if you want to, just by clicking on the banner for that year.

We hope that this little change makes your CoursePlus experience a little bit better!

Wikis Can Now Have Unlock and Lock Dates

Over the past few years, a handful of faculty have asked us if it's possible to set up wikis so that they did not become visible to students until a certain date, or if they could completely prevent any editing to a wiki after a specific date. We're pleased to announce that you can now do both of these things in the wiki tool!

Wikis with an open date will be listed on the main wiki page in a course but will not accessible by the students who have permission for that wiki until the date/time specified in the open date has passed. Wikis with close dates will also be listed on the main wiki page in a course but a student will not be able to access nor edit the individual pages in a wiki after the date/time specified in the close date has passed.

We hope you find this new feature to be useful!
