There are many tools available to educators to help with learning both in and out of the classroom. The point of this site is to provide support to the faculty and staff at Southside. You will find information here on Blackboard, Canvas, Google Apps, Zoom, and other tools that can be used in online, hybrid, and the traditional face-to-face courses. 

Student Information System (SIS)

You will utilize the VCCS Student Information System faculty center to check class rosters and to enter final grades at the end of you session(s) each semester.  You can also utilize this area to email your students before or during the semester.  (Please keep in mind that the Student Information System and Blackboard are two completely different areas.  If you would also like information on utilizing Blackboard, view the Blackboard information below.)

To get to the faculty center, you must log-in to your MySVCC page, click on the link for the Student Information System, and then click into the faculty center.  Instructions are linked here that walk you through this logging in process, as well as entering grades and checking your roster.
