I am interested in gathering some community feedback on the best practice for enrollments that might end later than the specified term date in Canvas. I'll provide our most recent use-case:
This semester term, Fall 2018, ends on December 21. We have roughly 115 courses set to this term. About half of these courses have a variety of different end dates in Maestro (our SIS). Some are partnership schools, others may be students that were added later. Whatever the case, the dates vary between January to May.
Solutions I've come up with thus far:
The goal is to restrict the students from the courses that have ended, but allow the courses with later end dates to continue, and also allow teachers continued access to their courses for months following an end date. Drop in suggestions for what you may have found to be the best practice for your school. Thanks!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Blane, I am working through a similar challenge myself so I am puzzling through all of the info around dates. I think you might be conflating "concluding a course" and setting an end date for a course. Based on this doc (How do I conclude a course at the end of a term as an instructor?) setting an end date for a course does not make it read only for instructors and is an alternative to "concluding" a course, which would restrict all users. That being the case, your second bullet seems like the way the go. Is that what you settled on? I'd be curious for an update.
