Such as Grading Schemes, Navigstions and Apps or do they need to be done individually within each course?
I've had luck with updating course settings across multiple courses using Blueprints.
Here's a link:
How do I sync course content in a blueprint course as an admin?
What's interesting is that Blueprints won't sync changes to settings alone. You need to update some piece of Blueprint course content before being presented with the the option to sync course settings too.
For example; I wanted to use a particular Grading Scheme for all Social Work courses associated with a particular Blueprint.
I'd change the appropriate setting in the Blueprint course...
Then change a piece of content, by adding a character or something like that...
Then sync the content change with the option to sync settings too.
If I wanted to get rid of that extra character, I would just remove it in the Blueprint then run a second sync job to remove it from the associated courses.
It's a bit quirky that way but works very well.
Hi Jonathan Yoder -
Are you asking from an Instructor viewpoint or an Admin? Ben's suggestion is more on the Admin side...so I wanted to see what your unique needs are before I chimed in.
That's a really good clarifying question. I'm curious now about how that would apply to the former.
I was referring to the Instructor view, but I am.interested in Blueprint courses and how they work in terms of setting generic course templates for some of our less tech savvy teachers to get them up and running.

At an Instructor level, good news is that if you create it one course, those are retained upon import. What is the Course Import Tool?
Benjamin Rodriguez @Erin Keefe Thanks for getting back so quickly! If I'm understanding both of your replies... essentially I can either do a Blueprint course (Admin Level) in which I set all those standards/apps as part of the default settings while also inserting some type of content like a District Policy on Plagiarism or common rubric and then it will be set for all those who use that blueprint going forward (Good for settings that we as a district will want regardless of content etc.)...AND/OR option 2 which is to just create a shell course with the settings I want as my default for any class I might teach and then just import that into each new class going forward under "Settings". (Good for customization by teaching style/discipline/personal touch)
Yep! You've got it!
