Requesting Your Course in e-Learning

If you are a faculty or staff member or the Graduate Teaching Assistant you may request a course by completing the Instructor e-Learning Course Request.

There are 3 versions of the Course Request Form:


e-Learning Course Request Form

The version that opens up when you click on Instructor e-Learning Course Request is used for all Registrar Courses, this will require the Course ID (ex. ABC1234 or ABC1234L) and the section(s) numbers: (ex. 3679 or 33FA,4295).

Click "Add" if this is a combined course Combined or cross listed courses are those courses that have distinct course ids and section numbers but are similar enough to be taught together as the same course in e-Learning. The best two examples are combining a graduate section and an undergrduate section into the same course or combining two or more courses from different departments into the same course.

The Add Button.jpg button will then give you space for 3 additional courses and sections, as follows:

                                        Roster Request Form.JPG

This form is used if you already have a course for the CURRENT Semester and need to add additional sections to the existing course. This is not used to request new sections for a course that has NOT already been created for the Current semester. ONLY TO ADD ADDITIONAL SECTIONS TO ALREADY CREATED COURSES. If you use this form to request your course be created for the current term it will delay the creation process and when it is created you will receive and e-mail requesting that you do not use this form for this purpose.

Select the Term from the pull down menu, you can select any term that is currently showing in the pull down menu.


Enter the Gatorlink ID of the Instructor. If you are completing the form for the Instructor be sure to put the Instructors Gatorlink ID in this field. The system will create the roster under this ID.


Enter the Course ID: (ex. ABC1234 or ABC1234L). REMEMBER: This is the course ID of the ALREADY Existing course. Not a request for a new course.


Enter the Section Number/Numbers: (ex. 3679 or 33FA,4295) If you have one section enter it in the box. If you have multiple section numbers enter them in the box separated by a comma (ex: 1234,5678,9012). No spaces in between the comma’s and numbers.

If your submission went through successfully, you should see a confirmation screen with a green "successful submission" message. You will also receive an email confirming your submission. If you do not receive confirmation, try submitting again or call us at 352.392.4357 option 3.


Roster Creation Process:

  • The Roster Request Form is submitted
  • The System will check the Course ID, Section Numbers, the Instructor’s ID and to see if there are any comments.
  • If all information is correct and there are NOT any comments then the system will automatically create the rosters. This is done once every hour. So it would depend where in the process the request comes in. It could be 2 hours or more before the roster is created.
  • If there are any errors in the Course ID, Section Numbers, the Instructors ID or Role, or there ARE Comments. The system will hold the request for review by LSS Staff responsible for course creation to resolve the errors.
  • Even if the system creates the rosters automatically you will not receive an email letting you know that the roster has been created until the LSS Staff member manually sends the email. This happens only during regular business hours.
  • The roster will have to be manually added to the course, either by us or by the person that made the request once the roster is available. This is NOT an automatic process.


If you have questions or problems with your course request please call (352) 392-4357 option 3, or call Bill Wood at (352) 273-0190 or email bwood@ufl.edu
