What is your setup for the Course and Section titles from Rediker to Canvas?
The problem as we understand it is to take Rediker Course and Section IDs, which are only unique within the school year, and make them globally unique within our Canvas account. This snippet from our online ops manual describes how we solved that problem:
There is a syntax we must follow for creating all Courses and Sections in Canvas so as to keep the Canvas IDs globally unique. Admin+ re-uses Course and Section IDs so we "munge" the Admin+ IDs with additional info to create informative and unique Canvas IDs.
A Course looks like this: 250:SP16-Crow
A Section looks like this: 250-01:SP16-Crow
What it means:
I hope this helps. If you have any feedback I would be welcome to hear it.
Do you need any special set-up for importing the grades back into Rediker? I am thinking of re-vamping how we have been labeling and titling our Courses and Sections.
One of the reasons for using the syntax described is that it is easily parseable back into the correct values for AdminPlus.
