During the summer of 2017, we released a new Buzz UI, giving you the same features and functionality with a cleaner, simpler user experience!

Until all users have switched to the new UI, our Help Center articles will include information for both. 

Click the header below that aligns with the Buzz UI version you are using (Old UI or New UI); if you don't know which version you are using, review the differences and/or contact your system admin or Agilix account manager.

Old UI

Teachers and content authors can use course templates to:

  • Create a new course, bringing everything from the template course into the new course you created. Use it "as-is," or use it as a starting point and make it your own.
  • Import gradebook settings. You can pick and choose which gradebook settings you'd like to import and use in a course.
Create the template

To create a template, you create a course as you would any other, and then Add the template to your domain (see section below). Users don't need a subscription to use templates.

Add the template to your domain

To add course templates to your domain:

  1. Open the Domain tool and click Settings in the toolbar.
  2. Select the Course Options tab.
  3. Click Add under the Template Courses section and provide:
    • The Order of appearance if there are multiple templates.
    • The template Title.
    • The name and ID of the course you want to use as a template; click the list (browse) icon to choose from available courses.
  4. Save.
Add the template to your domain

Notes

On clicking Save, after adding a template to your domain, the chosen course is set to Public so all course authors can access it. To reverse this:

  1. Open the Courses tool.
  2. Click Edit for the desired course.
  3. Uncheck the Public box.
  4. Save.
