eCampus - West Virginia University

eCampus Institutions

There are multiple institutions for different purposes that use Login credentials for authentication.

WVU Main Campus

This is the live online class environment for WVU Main Campus, Potomac State, and WVU Institute of Technology. Certain credit courses coming from STAR still have a course shell in this institution along with all faculty assignments and student registrations. Past term courses may not be visible on the course list however 2 full academic years of content is housed and can be made readily available. Courses for a new term are automatically loaded for faculty approximately six to eight weeks before the start of that term with default content. More information on STAR and enrollment requirements can be found at

Development System

The Development System is where faculty can prepare a course for an upcoming term or keep a “master” copy of their course content. Faculty wishing to develop a course for a future term need to request a new section in Development in order to begin working on that course. This can be done using our course request system ( eRS). Courses created in Development are not automatically copied to the live credit course when they become available. Their contact information is found in the Support Tab above. For enrollment requirements please contact Academic Innovation.

Continuing & Professional Education (Non-Credit)

WVU Academic Innovation offers a variety of courses for adults who want to continue their professional education, renew certification, or pursue personal interests. This institution is where all courses currently being taught of this nature reside as well as courses taught in previous terms. For more information on Continuing & Professional Education enrollment requirements and courses being offered through WVU, please contact Academic Innovation .

Learning Academy

The Learning Academy offers a flexible option to WVU Faculty and Staff for Community & Research course needs along with e-Learning Training and Professional Development purposes. Please fill out a course request under the Faculty tab of this site if one is interested in a Learning Academy shell. For enrollment requirements please contact Academic Innovation.


Exemplary course materials can be “Showcased” through this institution for a variety of purposes but will require special approval since this content represents WVU and must adhere to certain best practices in instructional design.
