All GPS courses use LATTE (Learning and Teaching Technology Environment). Each course has a dedicated course page where faculty can upload the course syllabus, share readings and multimedia; accept assignments; and organize online discussions with students. Students are able to participate in discussions, submit assignments, receive feedback, and interact with other members of your learning community.
Approximately one week before classes begin, your instructor will release the LATTE course for student view. You can access your LATTE courses by logging in with your UNet ID and password.
