Cource Pacing: Settings to ensure that default term date settings are maintained.

Community Participant

Instructors often find it tedious to change due dates for their courses each term.  We have fixed term dates, rather than a flex date model.  We are looking at adopting course pacing as a means forr faculty to established due dates based on time elapsed within a term (rather than via specific dates) ex. Assn 1 due Day 7, Assn 2 due Day 14). 

Questions 1:  If we enable the new course pacing feature, what setting do we need to enable to ensure that instructors cannot over-ride our institution-wide term date settings?

Question 2:  If a term coded course is copied for use in a subsequent term, would the pacing established  move over to the copied course? (Would pacing be maintained if the course is copied?)

Question 3:  If a publisher content is imported into a course, would the course pacing feature still be usable for the imported publisher content?.

Question 4:  If an institution uses "Simple Syllabus", would the synch with Simple from Canvas still work and pick up the due dates that are calculated through course pacing?
