use of the NROC content. Institutional sites can be further customized by a site administrator to set up course lists, textbook lists, and bookmarks for all users of the site.
Instructors at your institution can also register for their own “child” accounts to further customize NROC materials to meet their classroom needs. These custom sites inherit all the branding and customization that is set up by the administrator at the institutional site.
