What work flows does your district have for course creation in the following scenarios:
We allow our teachers to create their own shell courses and as many as they want. We also encourage them to import from commons into a shell.
Here are the two tutorials we have in doing both things.
Great input!! Thank you!!
Follow ups: Do you also use a SIS import for course shells from the SIS? Or are all courses created by teachers?
We import the SIS courses at the start of every school year from the global level.
These courses have the students already populated. The other shell courses are created by teachers for a number of reasons: clubs, extra activities such as IB EE advising, commons imports, etc.
Hope this helps!
HCPSS does not permit teachers to create course shells. If they want a class that is not connected to the SIS, then we have a course request form that they fill out. The items on the request form include:
We then evaluate all of this and create the course for the teachers. Requests are not too frequent since most are run through the SIS, so this is not an onerous task.
If a teacher wanted to use content from Commons, they would go through the same process and do the commons download themselves.
