Managing Sections

In any given term there may be multiple offerings of the same course, which are represented as sections. Sections get scheduled and those scheduled occurrences of the section are the classes students attend.

Once a section is created, managing the section involves editing the section ID, and adding or removing instructors from the section. You can also select a different "primary instructor" for the section if necessary. Primary instructors have certain rights over the features available for a section, and are also typically the "owners" of captures for the section.

Primary instructors as capture owners: When schedules are configured for a section, the Instructor on the capture schedule becomes the owner of those captures, which then appear in their Library page. This should typically be the primary instructor of the section, to allow them to publish, change availability, or remove that media from a section as necessary, and to edit the video if needed.

You can delete the section when it is no longer needed. Understand, however, that if you delete a section, user access to those classes is removed, along with all ancillary content such as notes, Q&A, and analytics data. Content published to the section remains in the owner's (instructor's) LIBRARY.

To manage sections

  1. From the main menu, select COURSES.
  2. Use the search box or filter drop-down lists to find the course for the section you want to manage.
  3. Click on the course to expand it and list the Sections for the course.
  4. HOVER over the section you want to edit, to expose the action icons on the right side of the row.

  5. Click the Edit icon (it looks like a pencil)
    The Edit Section dialog box appears.

  6. From the Edit Section dialog box you can:
    • Edit the Section ID
    • Change the Primary Instructor using the drop-down list.
      The list only contains instructors who are assigned to the section.
    • Add instructors to the section by clicking ADD INSTRUCTOR.
      Begin typing a name or email address search box for the drop-down list to limit your selections.
      Select instructor list narrowed by name typed into search box as described
    • Remove instructors from the section by clicking the X next to their name.
      You cannot remove the primary instructor; reassign the primary instructor first.
  7. Click SAVE.

To delete a section

NOTE: Deleting a section removes user access to those classes, and deletes all ancillary content such as notes, Q&A, and analytics data. Content published to the section remains in the owner's (instructor's) LIBRARY. Primary instructors for a section typically own the captures generated for the section.

  1. From the main menu, select COURSES.
  2. Use the search box or filter drop-down lists to find the course containing the section you want to delete.
  3. Click on the course to expand it and list the Sections for the course.
  4. HOVER over the section you want to delete, to expose the action icons on the right side of the row.
  5. Click the Delete icon (it looks like a trash can).
  6. Review the warning message that appears.
  7. To continue with deletion, click OK.
