How do I set a course format?

How do I set a course format?

You can set the format for a course in Course Settings. Course format shows whether the course is intended to be an on-campus course, a online course, or a blended course. Blended courses can sometimes be called hybrid courses, but the interpretation can be defined by your institution.

For admins, currently course format reporting can only be accessed through the Courses API or the Provisioning Report (Courses CSV configuration) in Account Settings.
