Viewing Documents on a MyCCRI Course Page

One of the useful ways that faculty can use MyCCRI is to store documents like the syllabus, assignments, handouts or presentations so that students can get to them anytime - day or night. To view and/or print these documents follow the instructions below. Note that not all teachers use this feature in MyCCRI so some course pages will be empty.
