Note: This article's focus is on the next-generation Service Learning Module (SLM), released by Galaxy Digital in late 2017/early 2018. For information on the old version (Legacy SLM), click here. The SLM is an add-on module and is not part of a standard Connect platform. SLM features are only available to clients who have purchased the module.

Students can be added to a course in the SLM in the following ways:

  • By being manually added by a site manager
  • By clicking a link provided by a site manager or course instructor (SLM Leader)

This article for SLM Leaders explains how an SLM Leader can access the "join link" for a course.

Note: Students cannot add themselves to a course. They must either be added by a site manager, or they must click the "join link" provided to them.

Accessing the "Join Link"

To access the "join link" for your students:

  1. Log into your Connect site.
  2. Select SLM Leader Portal from your profile menu.

    Note: Your site manager has the option to override the terms "SLM" and "leader." If your site uses different terms, they may not match what is shown in the image above.

  3. If necessary, select the applicable block (academic period) from the Block dropdown, and click Go to view the courses within that block.
  4. In the Leader Portal table, under the Join Link heading, click the Copy button for the course. (Click image for a larger view.)

This action copies the link to your clipboard. At this point, you can paste the link into an email or post to a course page on your school's learning platform (such as Moodle or Blackboard).

Note: You can also access the course join link from the Roster area of the SLM Leader Portal.

Once a student has clicked to join the course, you'll see their name in your SLM course roster. For more information on how joining the course looks from a student perspective, click here.
