Laulima For Students: My Workspace

My Workspace: is an individual online worksite that functions as a private workspace for each user. When you log in, you will automatically open your My Workspace, which will display the Message of the Day and My Workspace Information boxes. By default, these boxes contain announcements and information from the system administrator.

A site owner can revise what appears in the My Workspace Information box by clicking Options. Only a system administrator can modify the contents of the Message of the Day box, but a site owner can click Options to customize how announcements will display in the window.

Home: you will see areas for general information and synoptic views for communication tools used in your site. Additionally, you can view and alter your privacy status for the site.

Message of the Day from UH ITS: contain announcements and information from the system administrator.

Calendar/Schedule: A summarized version of the Schedule tool appears on the Home page of individual worksites. Site participants can see a summary of upcoming scheduled events. Days that contain events are highlighted.

Announcements: The Announcements tool is used to inform site participants about current items of interest. Announcements can have multiple attachments, such as documents or URLs. To see the Announcements from all the sites to which you belong, in the menubar of My Workspace, click Announcements.

Schedule: Schedule allows instructors or site organizers to post items in a calendar format. The calendar has day, week, month, year, and flat list views. Many instructors use Schedule to post readings for each class on the day they are due to be read.
