How to Create a Section in Courseware

Explanation

After Learners have been created and before they start working in content, they need to be enrolled into a section for the content title they are taking. Multiple sections can be created per content title, one for each Instructor to manage, or multiple Instructors (a maximum of five) can be added to one section to manage together. In Courseware, only Account Administrators and Program Administrators can create sections. Instructors can create sections if the Account Admin enables this functionality in the account.

Account Administrators should set up sections before the start of a semester to ensure that all courses that are offered have a section and an assigned Instructor.

Steps to Create a New Section
  1. From Courseware, Click on Manage Courses.
  2. You can either click New Section or scroll down under your Active Sections or Inactive Sections to the course you would like to add a section to.  Click the add section icon by the course needing the new section.Capture-AS Icon.PNG
