Personalized Help With NYU Classes
We offer multiple self-help resources and tutorials to get you started with using NYU Classes. Additionally, academic technologists are available to work with you individually to set up your course sites and customize them to your curricular needs. You may also schedule an appointment with the team at the Center for Digital Scholarship, or drop into one of our many NYU Classes workshops scheduled throughout the semester.
The NYUAD Library can assist faculty with adding library materials to their NYU Classes course site. Services include:
Linking of any e-content available within the NYU Library collections — database content, journal articles, ebooks, and more.
Scanning and uploading of NYUAD Library books.
Please request assistance two months prior to the beginning of the semester to ensure availability of content. Please note NYU'S policy, based on Fair Use Copyright Law, dictates that no more than 15 percent of a book be scanned and uploaded to NYU Classes. Selections that exceed that limit can be placed on Course Reserve upon request.

What is NYU Classes?
NYU Classes is the university’s learning management system where you will be able to access relevant material for some or all of the classes that you take. NYU Classes provides links to downloadable class material, embedded course videos, class related announcements and more. Please note that not all faculty choose to use NYU Classes as their learning management system, so it's possible you won't have course sites for each of your classes.
The team supports students, faculty, and staff in using technology, software, and equipment for their teaching and research. This team also supports classroom technology services and audio-visual services on campus. They are located in the NYUAD Library.
