Trouble logging in?

Course Connect uses the same login credentials that you use for Major Portal or your email. If you need to change your password, follow the procedure to change your Millsaps password, or click on the appropriate link on the Couse Connect login screen labeled "Click here for password reset."


When you log into Course Connect, the first thing you will see is the Dashboard and your Timeline, which contains a list of activities that require your attention. The Timeline will contain any activity that has a due date, and it will show activities from all of your courses in one central location. You can use the links to the right of each activity to submit assignments, attempt quizzes, post to forums, and more. 


You can also sort and search your Timeline. For instance, if you only want to view activities with a due date in the next week instead of all activities, you can use the first drop-down filter to select "Next 7 Days" and the Timeline will automatically adjust. You can also use the search bar to find activities by title or activity type. For example, if you need access to a forum titled Community Engagement, you could search for "Community Engagement" or "Forum."


To navigate between the Dashboard and My Courses, you can use the menu located in the top left corner of any page in Course Connect.


How to Access a Course

The My Courses page contains a summary of the courses you are enrolled in. To access any course from My Courses, simply click on the tile of the class located in the Course Overview. You can use the three drop-down menus at the top of the overview to choose exactly what you see on your Dashboard.

If you cannot locate your courses, try changing the first drop-down filter to the option "All (Including Removed from View)." You can also use the ellipses icon under the course title to 'star' or favorite your courses. This will give you the ability to use the first drop-down menu to view only your 'starred' courses. In addition to filters, you can search for courses by title using the search bar.
