Every campus or college has at least one designated submitter or requestor for the Digital Learning Cooperative.
- To submit a course to the DLC, contact the “submitter” who has responsibility for your campus, department, or college. A submitter has the authority to submit courses to the DLC for potential inclusion by other locations.
- To receive a course submitted to the DLC, contact the “requestor” designated for your campus, department, or college. A “requestor” has the authority to add courses to the schedule at your location.
DLC Contacts by Campus and College:
Digital Learning Cooperative contacts for each of the Penn State Colleges and Campuses are kept within the Digital Learning Cooperative. Within each course detail view there is a “get more information icon” that links to the DLC contacts for each Campus or College.
College contacts for the Digital Learning Cooperative are appointed by the Chief Academic Officer for each scheduling location and the DLC provides an “admin” role for each campus or college by which the campus or college can manage user permissions. Appointment of roles is done at the discretion of the Associate Dean (Colleges) or Director of Academic Affairs (University College Campuses). The addition of courses from other locations on the local campus schedule is typically managed by a campus registrar or department scheduler within a College. Some colleges have elected to delagate this sharing process to an administrative area within their dean’s office. A list of campus registrars is available at the Campus Registrar Contacts web page.
