Navigating Through eCampus

Slides 20 – 42 will show you how to navigate your online course(s) on eCampus


Above the “welcome” you see 5 tabs:

  • My DCCC
  • Courses
  • Community
  • Libraries
  • Academic Web Resources
  • On the left you see the Tools section
  • Announcements
  • Calendar
  • Tasks
  • View Grades
  • Send Email
  • User Directory
  • Address Book
  • Personal Information

After clicking on the link “Announcements” in the Tools section, you will see the page on the next slide


Click on Personal Information to update your address, email, phone numbers, etc;

You can also change your password and set other options. Please keep a record of password changes so you don’t block yourself from getting back into your class.


On this page you can change your personal information, reset your password, and edit other settings. If you change your password, make sure to write it down somewhere in case you forget.

Clicking on the Tab “My DCCC” will take you back to the page you will see on the next slide


Click on the Tab “Courses” to get into your course and find all the important information pertaining your course


You will only see your course(s) that you are enrolled in. The course title is a hyperlink and will take you to your course material.

On the next pages you will see course content related to the Marketing course. I will use this course as an example to guide you through other pages. Your course layout could be different as each instructor has his/her preferences of layout and structure of content.


Here you will see the announcements for your class. It is very important to login during the week and keep up with your messages.

I am clicking on the rectangular button “Syllabus” . Please advance to your next slide to see a sample of a syllabus


Make sure to read YOUR syllabus in its entirety. I also recommend to make a hardcopy and keep it with your other course info.

The next 5 slides are each a result of one of the rectangular tool buttons. Please advance.


Exam instructions vary greatly from one instructor to another. Make sure to read them early and contact your instructor PRIOR to an exam if you have any questions regarding these instructions.


Follow all instructions how the instructor expects your assignments. This information is also in the syllabus.


On this page, your instructor can post his/her contact info so you can get in touch for questions or concerns.


I returned to this page by clicking on the Course Tab to take you to another course and show you how the professors set up things differently.


This instructor provides you only with two tool buttons to choose from.

This instructor set it up through an External Link. On the next pages you can see how that is different from the previous instructor.


This instructor has a build-in response in his syllabus. This is how he can track whether you read the entire syllabus and about your ability to comply with web forms.


Each pop-up window comes with its individual scroll bars, so make sure to scroll down and right to read all of the information.


To print the content of a pop-up window, just right-click into the window and then left-click on the “print” command

econnect http econnect dcccd edu
eConnect: http://econnect.dcccd.edu

Use this link to check your grades, enrollment status, and student record. The next pages will show you how to navigate: logging in, password, etc.


If this is your first time, please click on the link below and follow the steps.

If you set up your eConnect account: Enter your student ID and password. Remember on this system you DO NOT add an “e” in front of your student ID. You only do that for eCampus.


Once you are logged in, you will need to click on the “check grades” link one more time.


Here you will need to select the term (semester) and grade type (Credit or Continuing Education) and then click on Submit.
