Lovelace guide for teachers¶
Creating an Account¶
This installation of Lovelace is connected to the university's Shibboleth authentication provider - there is no need to create a separate user account. Simply choose Log in from any page, and follow the link to log in with your university account. Doing this for the first time will create a Lovelace account that can only be logged in to through Shibboleth.
Creating a local account is still available for external students without university accounts. Use the Sign up link to create a local account.
Obtaining Teacher Access¶
A simple way is to
enrollto this course from the Lovelace front page. Enrollments for this course are handled by the Lovelace superuser, so they can give you necessary privileges after accepting your enrollment. Include the name(s) of your course(s) in the enrollment message, and also list all of the staff members who you want to have access to the course contents. After enrollment you will also get access to this course in the admin site so you can use its contents as examples (please don't edit them!). The superuser will also create your
base courseswhen you enroll.
The default language of this Lovelace installation is Finnish. This means that in all of the admin forms, Finnish is the primary field. If the field is mandatory, English version of the field will still be optional. Finnish names of pages will be used when forming urls. Also whenever the English field doesn't contain anything, the Finnish field will be used as the fallback. IMPORTANT: If you are offering a course only in English, you should use the Finnish fields in the admin site forms.
Reporting Bugs and Requesting Features¶
All feature requests and bugs should be reported to Lovelace issues in Github.
