Courses - Sections


Having different Sections with Courses does not make sense. At this time, when I am assigned 2 classes for the same course, it is structured in the following manner: 2 courses are created on the platform, not 2 sections within the same course. I do not understand what is the purpose of having sections within courses. In addition, when one changes the course date, there should be a warning message to change one of the section dates too.

@ScottS2020  Thanks for sharing this idea. Many, if not most, schools create their courses in Canvas to correspond with section enrollment; they will then go on to cross-list the sections for the instructor, depending on the school's policy on cross-listing, to facilitate the ability to manage multiple sections of the same course in one cross-listed course. Please reach out to your local Canvas admin to discuss the possibility of cross-listing your sections.
