Note: All 2023 eLumen submissions become effective Fall 2024 and will be included in the 2024-25 catalog.

eLumen Training Materials

eLumen is based on roles. Faculty using the eLumen Curriculum Module will use the Discipline Originator Role to submit new/modified/deactivated courses/awards in discipline(s), and the Faculty Role to review new/modified/deactivated courses/awards submitted by other faculty in the same discipline(s). 

Below are videos for each step of a workflow for both the Discipline Originator Role and for the Faculty Role. Before watching the role-specific videos, watch the General eLumen Training Videos as you will need a basic understanding of eLumen before jumping into workflows. Also, when eLumen sends you an email telling you there are items in your Inbox, take note which role is receiving the notification (Discipline Originator or Faculty). 

Discipline Originators submitting a course or award for Five-Year Review will need to review and update (as necessary) all steps of course and award workflows. The Course and Award Five-Year Review trackers are linked in the "Resources" sidebar on the Curriculum Committee homepage
