Would like to hear from K-12 admins who use cross-listing in secondary schools.

We've been using cross-listing in our pilot school for 2 years and just began the API load of the cross-listed csv file beginning with 2nd semester this year. This is a magnet school, so does not have the typical beginning of year madness that our mainstream schools experience with count changes.

Now that we're expanding Canvas into all secondary schools beginning next fall, our administration is concerned about the ramifications with cross-listing due to course changes that occur into October as enrollment settles.

We do cross-listing on sections because we use a centralized course master so we can't group sections by course.  Our cross-lists are based on course code/section #/school code/teacher name.  We're concerned about course changes due to count where a course is merged, teachers get swapped, and other similar course/section changes.

Have you been using cross-lists in these types of circumstances?  If so, how do you handle these course changes?  Do you ask that teachers delay student submissions for a time period at the beginning of the school year?

Any information would be helpful - thanks!

 @kristin_bayless ,

We are giving the Canvas Admins area a little bit of love (especially questions that are really, really old) and just want to check in with you.  Were you able to find an answer to your question? I am going to go ahead and mark this question as answered because there hasn't been any more activity in a while so I assume that you have the information that you need. If you still have a question about this or if you have information that you would like to share with the community, by all means, please do come back and leave a comment.  Also, if this question has been answered by one of the previous replies, please feel free to mark that answer as correct.



This is fine.  I never did hear back from anyone else doing automated cross-listing, but we've been doing it for our schools for three years now, so I've probably encountered all the situations that are likely to crop up.  Thanks.
