Navigating this site

How is the site set up? / How do I know where to go?

Just like other Internet Web sites, CampusCruiser navigation is organized with Tabs, Menus, and Pages.

Click the link on the navigation you want to view and you will be taken to the appropriate page.

TIP: You may notice a "Navigation Trail" that displays at the top of each page, below the tab menu bar. This trail acts like breadcrumbs; they show your location on the site, as you move to pages on different levels. When you click on a breadcrumb in your trail, you will be taken back to that page.

What is my Quickbar?

Your QuickBar is a set of icons that give you quick access to key campus tools, such as your Personal Tools and Help options. It's located in the upper right-hand corner of the header. Click the Home icon to navigate back to your dashboard, anytime. Depending on your campus settings, you may be able to personalize your QuickBar with your own tool choices.

What is the Dashboard?

Your Dashboard is your landing (Home) page when you log in to the CampusCruiser system. It's set up by your Campus Administrator to provide you with the most relevant, up-to-date information about your campus and your academics. This information displays to you through Channels that are updated by your Campus.

For example, the "Campus Announcements" channel or the school "Calendar" channel will display important messages and events relevant to your school. And, if you belong to a club or committee, you will probably see your "My Clubs" or "My Committees" channels that display important information and messages from specific communities of which you are a member.

It's possible that you may be able to personalize your Dashboard page, depending on your campus policies. It's also possible that the channels of information on your dashboard will be "sticky", which means you cannot change them. You may be able to add additional channels by clicking the gear setting.

TIP: Even when your dashboard is locked down or the channels are sticky, you can always create additional Dashboard tabs of your own�by clicking the "add" symbol to the right of your Dashboard tab. It's fun personalizing them with channels and information important to you.

Why do I sometimes get logged out automatically?

For security purposes, when your CampusCruiser session exceeds 30 minutes with no activity, you will be logged out automatically. After 27 minutes of idle time (no page refresh), a warning message will ask if you want to continue your session. Selecting "Yes" will extend your session.

Also, setting a refresh rate will tell the system to automatically update the information on the page, so you will not get "timed out" for inactivity. You can set an automatic refresh rate for your Dashboard and your E-mail.

  • Refresh E-mail rate in the "settings" feature.
  • Refresh Dashboard rate in the "customize settings" button.

How do I log into my classes?

Classes in the CampusCruiser LMS will display in your "My Classes" channel on your Dashboard; simply click on the course title to go to your class Home page.


What are my "personal tools"?

Your Personal tools may include all or some of the following items, depending on your campus. These tools are available for your own personal use, and can be accessed from your QuickBar anytime or from one of the global navigation drop-down menus on your Dashboard.
