Oncourse is IU’s collaborative learning environment. Students and faculty can access course syllabi and grades; communicate via email, chat, and forums; take online quizzes and surveys; and even store files.
The Knowledge Base offers loads of information about Oncourse, from what it is to how to use it. You can even request a practice site to get the hang of things (In Oncourse, how can I request a site?). Also, any faculty or staff member can request a project site to use as a site for collaboration on project, committee, or research work.
