After clicking on the Workshop Manage tab and selecting Course Management, then eCourses, each eCourse will appear in one of the following states: Active, Draft, or Archived. By default, all new eCourses are drafts. These can be authored and edited but are not available for registration. Active eCourses are those that have been completed and are new ready for registration. Archived eCourses are active courses that contain submissions which have been deactivated. They will retain their place in staff portfolios, but no new attendees will be allowed to register for them.
After selecting a course, you will be able to begin editing and creating content for that course. The first view is the Overview tab. This screen will show you the basic information for the course such as the credits earned, course goals and the course instructor(s).
In the tool bar at the top, you will see the options to save, delete, change the state of the course, print course reports and email the entire class.
A course can exist in a Draft, Active, or Archive state. By default, an eCourse begins in Draft mode. When you change the state to Active, then staff members will be able to register for the course. If an eCourse is in the Archive state, additional enrollment is no longer allowed. The completion status of each attendee is retained, along with content; however, no further staff will be able to register for this eCourse.
The print icon allows you to print Course Details, Certificates and Course Credit. Certificates will only print for those participants who have completed the eCourse and received full or partial credit. The Course Credit option allows you to view all participants, their enrollment dates, their status in the course, whether they have completed the survey and any credit they have earned.
Email Class opens an editor to compose an email message that will be sent to all attendees. Note: If the option "use mail client for email dialogs" is enabled under General Options Tab > Messaging, the email will not be sent by the server. Instead it will open your default email program and populate the "To:" field with the email address of every attendee. This will allow you to send the email as yourself instead of as the system.
The Setup tab will allow you to assign or change the course title, description, additional information, instructors, content authors, course managers, course survey, course credit, elective credit, course categories, course stipends (if enabled) and course goals.
The Attendees tab will allow you to control the enrollment and award or deny credit for this course. The list of enrolled staff works very much like standard courses. However, you will notice there are a few less options.
When all settings have been entered, you can then Save this course and use the top toolbar button to make the course active. You can also use the top toolbar to print certificates and email all registered attendees.
