Welcome to Advanced Academic Programs Faculty Services. Our aim is to provide the services needed to promote excellence in teaching and learning at our three locations and online. Whether you are new to teaching at AAP or a returning lecturer, you will find staff support, resources, and facilities to enrich your teaching experience.
Getting Ready for your Semester
Listing Textbooks for your students
You will be emailed when MBS Direct is ready for you to list your books about 8 weeks before the start of a term. After the email, you will be prompted to log onto MBS Direct Service Center with the user name: afaculty and password: facultycd (case sensitive). The Online Bookstore Guide (PDF) provides step by step directions to ordering.
Note: If you are NOT using a text, please follow the instructions to locate your course and select “no text required” from the drop down menu so your students know that no text is needed for the class.

Information Technology Support
General IT Support
If you require assistance using Hopkins systems, such as accessing your JHED Account or e-mail, using VPN, or library access, contact the Hopkins help desk at 410-516-4357; or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Help Desk staff perform triage service, handling specific incidents for which they are trained. They then distribute all other calls to the unit which can best respond to the incident. The call center operates on a 24 hour day / 7 day week. For more information on technical support and services offered, visit the Johns Hopkins Information Technology website at it.jhu.edu.
Online Courses Support
Getting the Course Roster
The Director for Disability Services in the Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action Programs recommends accommodations if warranted. Laura Hannon will contact the faculty member about the accommodations needed and coordinate arrangements for any necessary accommodations. She will also inform the student of the agreed upon accommodations. It is recommended that the faculty member and the student discuss the accommodations at the beginning of the course. Students need to continue to formally request accommodations each semester/term they enroll.
Faculty will know that a student has an official accommodation because they will receive official documentation from Susan Campbell indicating what accommodations are necessary. Typical services might include extra time for tests, a note taker in the class, or interpreters in the classroom.

Activating your Johns Hopkins Enterprise Directory (JHED)
Your JHED Account
Johns Hopkins Enterprise Directory system is an online, comprehensive source for address, telephone, e-mail and other contact information for students, faculty, and staff at the Johns Hopkins University.
Your JHED Login ID
Your JHED Login ID (JHED ID or LID) is the username that you use when you log into the JHED system. Many other resources at JHU now use JHED to authenticate users (i.e., allow access). Think of it as a “single password” login. For instance, to get to your JHU email, log into a PC in a public computing facility, or register for classes online, you could use the same JHED LID and password.

Setting up and Using Your Hopkins Email
Using The Johns Hopkins University Libraries
The Eisenhower Library can electronically post your course readings, course notes, syllabi, and exams. The Eisenhower Library can also order your reserves for the reserve desk at your teaching site. To request electronic postings or to submit a reserve request, send your syllabus or list of citations by email to email@example.com approximately four weeks prior to your course start date. Before submitting your request, please review the library reserve collection policy, and the library’s readings page. For information on establishing remote access in order to access e-readings, visit the library’s webpage on connecting from off-campus.
Other Library Services
Please contact your liaison or campus librarian to find out about scheduling sessions on conducting scholarly research for your students, acquiring resources not owned by the library and for general tips for more efficient use of the library.
Your Johns Hopkins Enterprise Directory (JHED) Login ID allows you access to the Eisenhower Library’s extensive electronic databases and search capabilities. You may wish to follow the tutorial on Activating your Johns Hopkins Enterprise Directory (JHED) Login.
To obtain borrowing permissions from the Eisenhower Library, you must have an activated J-Card. Your J-Card works as your picture identification card, library card, and on-campus cash card. You can obtain your J-Card by printing and filling out the J-Card application. If your office is on the Homewood campus, you can submit the application for processing and to have your picture taken by visiting:
Office of ID Card Services
Johns Hopkins University
51 Garland Hall (located in the basement)
3400 N. Charles Street Baltimore MD 21218-2683
Tel: 410.516.5121 / Fax: 410.516.6494
Please note that the J-Card office is very busy the first two weeks of the Fall semester when all new undergraduate students are carded.
If your office is located at a campus or center other than Homewood, you do not need to have your photo taken. You may choose to fax or mail in your application and your J-Card will be mailed to you via interdepartmental mail. For more information on J-Cards, visit the Office of ID Card Services website.
