Course Connect - For Faculty & Staff: Editing Your Course

Editing Your Course

This page details the changes you will see when editing your course on Course Connect. 

  • On most pages, the left-hand menu has been converted into tabs across the top of your screen. The Dashboard and My Courses links are now located at the top of the screen for easier access. Additionally, course navigation no longer relies on the left menu either; instead in your course you will see a series of tabs across the top of the screen with your course settings, grades, participants, etc.
  • ‚ÄčWithin courses, the left menu is now a linked menu that directs students to different topics and activities. Simply click a topic or activity to be immediately redirected to the assignment details screen, where teachers can grade and students can submit. 
  • To edit your course, use the ‘Edit Mode’ toggle to turn editing on. It is located in the upper right corner of the screen.
  • Some of the edit/add options in your course may look different, but they have the same functions. You can still drag and drop media and files onto your course page (as long as you have editing turned on) and you will see many of the same editing icons throughout your course.
  • The ‘edit’ option that you find to the right of every activity has been replaced with an ellipses icon. Simply click on the three dots and you will see the same editing options as before (edit settings, duplicate, hide, etc.).
  • It is now easier to move activities and resources around your course page. Simply use the ellipses icon to select ‘Move’ and then select the name of the item that should be right above the item you are moving. You can also still drag and drop your materials into the correct space.
  • The resource formerly known as a ‘Label’ is now called the ‘Text and Media Area.’ This resource works exactly the same, with some enhancements to the ‘Accessibility Checker’ and ‘Screenreader Helper.’
