Getting Started: Accessing Folio

Announcements and Emails

Instructors can post important announcements or communicate course updates using the Announcements tool in Folio.

Assignment Essentials

Learners can use the Assignment tool to upload and submit work directly to an assignment folder in Folio, eliminating the need to email the assignment to the instructor. The Assignment tool has the ability to accept multiple submission types such as uploaded files, online text entries, and even record in-class work. Instructors can also set up individual or group assignment folders, associate rubrics, evaluate submissions, and leave feedback.

Content Essentials

Content pages or topics are built on HTML; these web pages (HTML) are the ideal file type for delivering content in Folio. HTML-built pages can be accessed from any device that has internet access. These HTML-built pages offer significant benefits over other document types – particularly the ability to read and watch content on mobile technologies easily.

Course Management

Discussion Essentials

Discussions are an important part of developing critical thinking skills. Discussion boards are also used to enhance teaching and learning in various contexts. Use the activities and resources on this page to use the Folio discussions tool and learn how to create and manage discussions in your course.
