Courses tool

The Courses tool default screen displays courses in the domain and allows you to:

  1. Search for courses in the domain (check the box to limit your search results to Active courses only).
  2. Use the New [plus sign] button to Create courses.
  3. Use the vertical menu in the toolbar to Import, Bulk update, Delete, and/or Restore courses. To use Bulk update and Delete, first check the boxes next to the courses you want impacted.
  4. Click a Course ID to access the course screens (described below).

Course screens

Click a Course ID to access course screens:

  • Details to review and edit course information.
  • Enrollments to create, delete, import, search, update, and edit a course's enrollments.
  • Subscribers to add, remove, search, and edit course subscribers.  
  • History to review changes made to courses.

Course Details screen

The course Details screen lets you edit a course's title, term (or school year if your domain has Grading Periods), external ID, whether you want it to be Public, and schedule type (date range or continuous). Click the Home icon next to the Domain ID to go to the domain. Save you changes.

History

History allow admins to review changes made to courses.

  1. Click the View options to see the old and new values.
  2. Click Changes to see changed settings.
  3. Click Details to see current settings.

Bulk update

Buzz allows you to update certain course components in bulk. To do so, check the boxes for the courses you want to update and select Bulk update. From here you can:

Update Field values.

  1. On the Field values tab, you can edit the following settings by checking the appropriate box and editing the field:
    • Type (range or continuous)
    • Days the course should be available for students if you choose continuous
    • Start date
    • End date
  2. Bulk updates are permanent and should be handled very carefully to ensure you are editing the correct courses. Because of this, Buzz requires you to check the box reading:
    • I have verified that the courses I am about to permanently update are the correct ones, and I confirm that I want to update them with the field values shown above.
  3. Once you have checked this box, click Update.

Apply Template settings

If your domain has defined template courses, a Template tab also appears. If you want to apply settings from an existing course template:

  1. Select the desired Template from the dropdown
  2. Check the boxes next to the settings you want.
  3. Bulk updates are permanent and should be handled very carefully to ensure you are editing the correct courses. Because of this, Buzz requires you to check the box reading:
    • I have verified that the courses I am about to permanently update are the correct ones, and I confirm that I want to update them with the field values shown above.
  4. Once you have checked this box, click Update.
