Learn@UW (UW-Madison Only) - Instructor Cannot See a Course in Learn@UW

This document explains the circumstances under which an instructor may not be able to see a Learn@UW course and their solutions.

  • Semester or My Courses has not been expanded on the My Home page
    • See Viewing Current Courses for more information on clicking the expandarrow.jpg to expand My Courses or the current semester courses.

  • Instructor is not the "Instructor of Record" for the course (which can be found in the timetable)
    • Registration data such as the instructor of record, rosters, and crosslisted classes cannot be changed by the course instructor or by Learn@UW support. All changes to this info must be made in ISIS by the departmental "timetable rep."
    • Please note that changes such as this may take up to 24 hours to take effect.

  • Instructor wishes to view a future semester
    • Currently, the automatic course creation process can only accommodate future semesters a few weeks before they begin. To request a Learn@UW course prior to this time, please complete and submit the course request form at:, or find the link under the "Request a..." menu on the Learn@UW login page.
    • Instructors should complete separate requests for each course that is needed. Email notification will be sent when the course is available (generally within 48 hours).
  • Instructor is enrolled in more than 100 courses
    • Instructors enrolled in a large no. of courses will see a list of the last 25 courses accessed and a "Search for" box instead of the typical "My Courses" list. If this list does not include the course you are looking for, simply click Search, with the Search box empty. An alphabetical listing of all courses you are enrolled in will appear. You may need to advance through several pages of listings to find your course. Alternatively, you can type in the course name, semester, or department and click Search to limit the items that are returned in the search. When a course is accessed, it will appear at the top of the list of the last 25 courses accessed.
