Digital Landing Page Course Setup (no LMS Integration)

Getting started with Norton digital products—ebooks, InQuizitive, Smartwork5, and more—is easy. This article provides instructions for setting up a course using Norton's Digital Landing Pages. Instructors who wish to integrate their Norton digital products with their school's Learning Management System (LMS) should visit the help notes on LMS Integration.



How do I access Norton digital products?

Log in to your textbook's digital resources page using your email address and Norton instructor account password.

Don't have a password? Visit http://wwnorton.com/instructors . Once on the site, go to the discipline menu on the left, find your book's instructor resource page, and request instructor account access.

What are Student Sets?

A Student Set is your class section. Student Sets allow you to view the results of the work completed by a particular group of students.

There are two ways for you to create a Student Set: from scratch, or you can create a new Student Set by copying an existing Student Set.

Basing your Student Set on an existing Student Set allows you to copy any assignments and settings that you use in one Student Set into another Student Set. You may want to create a Student Set based on an existing Student Set if you are teaching multiple sections of the same course. Furthermore, if you and another instructor are both teaching different sections of the same course, you have the option to base your Student Set on the other instructor’s Student Set by using the copy function.

How do I create a new Student Set?

Click on the gear menu in the upper-right corner of the digital resources page and select Manage Student Sets from the menu.

How do I add a Co-Instructor, Scoring Teaching Assistant, or Teaching Assistant to my Student Set?

In all Norton digital products, you can add a Co-instructor, a Scoring Teaching Assistant, or a Teaching Assistant to your Student Set. Each role has a different set of permissions. Click on your product to see a complete list of role permissions for Teaching Assistants, Scoring Teaching Assistants, and Co-Instructors.

Note: Adding a TA or STA to your Student Set will not grant that account access to the associated product(s); the TA or STA will still need to register or purchase access to be able to use the Digital Resources for your textbook.

Click the gear menu at the upper-right of the page and select Manage Student Sets from the menu.

http://dyzz9obi78pm5.cloudfront.net/app/image/id/5949431aec161c43338d7ae2/n/ebook-insonly12.png

http://dyzz9obi78pm5.cloudfront.net/app/image/id/594943c9ad121c85329219e5/n/ebook-insonly14.png

In the Role dropdown menu, select the permission level you would like to give the person you are adding to your Student Set. (For a comparison of the four different roles, please see the Overview of Role Permission links above.) Type in the person's email address and click the Lookup button.

  1. If you are adding a co-instructor, the person must have a Norton account with full instructor privileges. For help with this, please contact Norton Customer Support.
  2. If you are adding a scoring TA or TA, the person does not need to have a pre-existing Norton account. In the case that they do not have a Norton account, we will send them an email with log in instructions once you add them to your Student Set.
  3. Note:If you are adding a student as a scoring TA or TA, you are changing their permissions in all Norton products. If they are enrolled as a student in another Student Set, please have them register with a separate email address when logging in as a TA or a scoring TA.
  4. Once you give an account a specific level of permission in your Student Set, you cannot downgrade that account to a lower permission level. For example, if you give an account scoring TA access, you cannot downgrade that account to TA access.  If you need assistance with downgrading a TA or STA in your Student Set, please contact Norton Customer Support.

How do I remove a student from my Student Set?

You may wish to remove students (e.g., those who have dropped the course) from their Student Sets so that reports align with your current rosters. Removing a student will also permanently delete that student’s grade record from your Student Set. Note: This action cannot be undone.

To remove a student, start by clicking on the gear in the upper right corner of your screen and selecting “Manage Student Sets.”
