Accessing your courses

Login to eClass

You'll need a Passport York username and password to login to eClass.  

York uses two-factor authentication to access many applications, you can find out more about using two-factor authentication as well as tips and troubleshooting at https://infosec.yorku.ca/services/two-factor-authentication/

First time logging in?

You'll be prompted to confirm your email address, once you've entered your email we'll send you a quick email to that address. You'll need to follow the instructions in that email to confirm and then you'll be all set up to receive announcements from eClass. If you do not confirm your email address you will get stuck on your profile page.

Find your course

On your course dashboard you'll see a list of all of the courses you have access to and that have been made available to you. You can sort these courses by name or last accessed, star your favourites, or hide those that you aren't interested in. 

To enter a course click on the title.

Not seeing all your courses?

There are a few reasons you might not see the list of courses you are expecting to see.

Your course isn't available to you yet

Instructors

We use authorative information on 'who's teaching what' from our Academic Resource Management System (ARMS). Once you've been assigned to teach a course there, you will be added to your course automatically. 

Students  

While many courses use eClass, some Instructors may choose to not use eClass and some may have chosen not to make it available to you just yet, choosing to make it available for the first day of that class. It's best to check with your Instructor to find out if there is a eClass course available to you.


You've recently switched your courses or section

If you've recently added a course or switched sections please allow up to 24 hours for it to appear in your list of courses. 

You have filters affecting your view

Make sure you are displaying courses that are In progress

Use the Filter in the Course overview block to show either In progress, Past or Future courses. You can also use this filter to see any courses you may have starred or hidden. 


Use the pagination

You can use change the number of courses that are displayed or use the pagination links to see more than the default 12 that are displayed in your Course Overview block. 


Make sure you haven't hidden courses

You can choose to remove courses from your view if they are no longer relevant to you. If you've removed a course from your view and want to be able to see it you can use your display filter to show all the courses you've removed from view.


If you'd like a course that you have removed from your view to appear on your dashboard, click on the elipses next to the Course name and select Restore to view
