Getting Started with WebCT
Logging On for the First Time
1. Point your browser to http://courseware.utoronto.ca. This is the WebCT homepage for the UofT.
2. Click on the first option, “Create my WebCT Account” (unless you have already created one for another course, in which case you should choose “Log in to WebCT” and skip to the next step). You will be prompted to enter your first and last name and your email address, and you will be asked to choose a WebCT user ID and password. Once you have done this, click “Continue.”
3. A page will now come up saying “Log in to WebCT” at the top and asking you for your WebCT ID and password. Enter the ID and password you created on the previous screen and click “Log in.”
4. You will now be at myWebCT, your personal WebCT homepage. In the upper left, under “Course,” click on “Add course.”
5. A list of courses using WebCT will now appear. In the left-hand column, with the heading “Category,” click on “English.” A list of English courses will now appear on the right, under “Courses.” Find ENG279Y: Asian North American Literature in English, and click on it.
6. Do not enter a user name and password on the next screen. Instead, just click on the second button down, labeled “Register.”
7. You should now see the message “Course Added.” If you click on “Go to Course,” you will reach the ENG279Y WebCT page.
Returning to the WebCT page
Once you have created your WebCT account, you can reach the ENG279Y WebCT page again in one of three ways:
1. Point your browser directly

You will be prompted to enter your WebCT ID and password. Once you have done this, you will be directed to the course WebCT page.
2. You can also reach WebCT
through my course homepage, http://individual.utoronto.ca/timyu/eng279y
Follow the link “WebCT site and discussion board.” You will be prompted to enter your WebCT ID and password, after which you will be directed to the course WebCT page.
3. You can point your browser to http://courseware.utoronto.ca and choose “Log in to my WebCT account.” You will be prompted to enter your WebCT ID and password. After you have done so, your myWebCT page will come up, showing the courses for which you are registered on WebCT. Choose ENG279Y and you will be directed to the course WebCT page.
