Early enrollments in a limited time course

Jump to solution

We have a course that is in registration now with a start date for early November. Enrollments are going fine and students are restricted from viewing the course before the start date. 

There is also a time limit set for the course. Now, this normally means that the clock starts ticking upon enrollment into the course. For courses that start in the future, does the start date of the course then count as day one for anyone who enrolled prior to the start date (which I would assume, but didn't really want to assume)... or is the time limit still really bound to the enrollment date regardless of course start date?

The time limit is bound to when the student registers. So, day 1 would be the date they click the link to register. Does that make sense or solve your issue? So, for this answer, the answer is no: For courses that start in the future, does the start date of the course then count as day one for anyone who enrolled prior to the start date (which I would assume, but didn't really want to assume). It is the date they clicked the link to enroll.

Thanks Jessica, it answers my question...but in some ways doesn't make sense from a student experience point of view. I've always been frustrated with the days-to-complete feature and usually advise my faculty against using it because of its quirkiness, but sometimes the need outweighs the risk. I appreciate your taking the time to answer 🙂
