Online course supplements

Course Online (COOL)

COOL features webcasts of course lectures, synchronized with professors' PowerPoint presentations. The site is intended to supplement your in-class learning by allowing you to review a lecture or catch up if you were sick, but should not be used to replace class attendance. Courses posted are predominantly from the Faculty of Science.

myCourses is McGill's online course management system and is used in hundreds of courses.

Once you log into myCourses using your Minerva Username and PIN, you'll be taken to a personalized home page featuring all your courses. From there, you can access information about your specific courses.

The site's most popular features include:

  • Discussion boards and real-time chat with classmates and instructors, facilitating group work;
  • Posted course notes and/or presentation slides;
  • Lecture recordings;
  • Practice quizzes;
  • Access to your grades;
  • Electronic assignment submission.

The material and functions available to students through myCourses are determined by instructors on a course-by-course basis.
