Buzz: Questions & Answers
I have "master" courses that are organized by discipline (i.e. Science, Math, ELA, etc) and have built out several derivative courses that contain items from these courses. For example, I have a derivative child Algebra course that contains many of the items from the Math Discipline course. However, some of my child Science courses may also contain a few of those Math items.
They are all derivative chained so that updates are passing through from the master item correctly.
The challenge is.....I have a need re-organize and move some of the items from one course to another....i.e. I would like to break up my Math Discipline course into Early Math, Middle School Math and so on. Is there a way to move "master" items between courses.
In the UI -- I know there is the "bulk edit -> move" feature but that appears to only allow moving an item between folders within the same course.
Via DLAP -- I know I can update some of the data for an item but the entityid (the course) does not appear to be a piece of that data.
I really don't want to create new "copies" of the item in my new, more specific courses because it would serve no purpose. All that would do is create another child copy but my parent/master item would still be in the "old" course...and all of the derivatives are still chained to that old item (instead of the new one) and I would still be forced to edit that item in the old course.
My goal is to break apart the "MATH" course into new "specific" courses....move items around into those new courses and then delete what would now be the original but empty "math" master course....without breaking any of the existing, derivative chaining.
Is this possible, either in the UI or via DLAP calls?
