Return of the Sharks

Some students who originally accepted the ROS course, but did not take it, were sent another invitation to accept the course. Below are two helpful guides to help you complete the course:

 The Canvas document addresses three scenarios a student may encounter. They are:

  • Scenario I - Accepting the Canvas course invitation.
  • Scenario II -  How to unhide a course if the student previously hid the course and instructs the student how to return the course to their dashboard.
  • Scenario III - Accessing the course if they initially declined the course and need to self-enroll.

Also, many students have indicated they have completed the training, but they failed to complete the Return of the Sharks Protocol Form that would mark their course as complete.  The second document “Guide for Students to Complete the Sharks Protocol Form” is helpful to share with students and will walk them through the steps to make sure they fully complete the training.
