Find Course By Filter

To manage an existing course, enter part of the course’s title into the "Filter by course title” text field located above the “Add New” button. The result will automatically return a course list which applies the critieria entered. A list of all matches will populate your search panel; highlighting and selecting the desired program will load it to your screen.

Follow the links below for more specific information related to Course Objective activities. Adding MeSH Term(s) to Course Objectives is covered in the "Edit Course Objective" page linked below.

Program Cohorts

For courses which are given more than once in an academic year, the course name or Course ID should identify this: for example Intersession 1 (2011-12), Intersession 2 (2011-12), Intersession 3 (2011-12), IDS 33A, IDS 33B, etc. Creating multiple instances of a course within an academic year is handled using the Course Rollover feature. For courses that are given more than once in an academic year, the listings are in chronological order according to start date.

In order to populate courses with learner groups, the course must first be associated with the desired Program(s), as well as the desired learner cohorts within that program. Cohorts are listed by graduation year. If you select the program Doctor of Medicine, and its cohort Class of 2015, then the course will now be eligible for population with any learner or learner group from that program / cohort. A course may be associated with any number of programs and cohorts, allowing for interdisciplinary courses as well as mixed level courses. Only cohorts, to which the user is provided access, either by explicit permission granted for school or program, or by joint stewardship of a program, will be available for selection. Cohorts previously selected for which a user has no permissions will not be changeable by the user. In the example shown on the following page, Doctor of Medicine >> Class of 2017 has been chosen. When you are finished, click the green check to return to the Courses and Sessions screen.

To add or remove Cohorts from a Course, click the Manage Cohorts button as shown below. This appears at the bottom of the Course Details section.

Now that the action detailed above has taken place, the Class of 2018 has been successfully added to the Course as it is evident that both Cohorts are listed.
