How do I re-use courses from past semesters?

There are two main methods for reusing courses from past semesters.

To Begin

1. Click on theĀ  tab
2. Scroll down to the bottom of the screen until you find Advanced Filters then click on Courses. This will take you the Forms-side of the software

Method 1

This method is carried out by updating the teacher and semester of the course each semester:

  1. Search for and select the course you which to edit
  2. Change the Teacher and Semester dropdown menus to reflect the current semester
  3. Click Save
  4. Once you are ready to add students to the course, select Students from the top of the screen
  5. Search for and select the student who you wish to add to the course
  6. Select the Courses tab from the student’s profile
  7. Click Create+ to add the course
  8. Select the course from the Course dropdown menu
  9. Ensure the Teacher and Semester dropdown menus say “Same as course.” This will match the teacher and semester of the student’s course to that of the original course.
  10. Click Save

Method 2

ThisĀ method for reusing past courses is carried out by changing the teacher and semester for the course in the student’s profile:

  1. Select Students from the top of the screen
  2. Search for and select the student who you wish to add to the course
  3. Select the Courses tab from the student’s profile
  4. Click Create+ to add the course
  5. Select the course from the Course dropdown menu
  6. Change the Teacher and Semester dropdown menus to the relevant teacher and semester
  7. Click Save

If you plan to reuse a course many times, the second method will be easier if you leave the Teacher and Semester fields blank when creating/editing the original course in the Courses dashboard (accessed by clicking Courses in the top right).
