Creating a Campus Course

Under the main menu «Campus course», the members of the Faculty of Theology, Economics, Philosophy and Science at the University of Zurich will see their courses according to the university catalog. Lecturers can create campus courses corresponding to their courses with just a few mouse clicks. Campus courses and the module booing system are synchronized daily. Students will therefore be enrolled automatically in campus groups as can then be seen in their Home.

Just click on «create» within the main menu «Campus courses». You can choose if you want to create a campus course as a standard one along with download folder and the possibility to communicate or if you prefer a campus course based on one of your own courses.

Standard courses are available immediately after being created. All you have to do is upload your documents to the corresponding folder.

If you have already created your own successful courses you can create campus courses based on one of those. In contrast to the first option this new course will not be published and activated automatically. You should therefore always open the course editor before publishing your course and granting access.

If you want to offer a certain course for more than one semester, it is also possible to alternatively choose a campus course already existing before continuing that one. Therefore, you won’t have to create a new course. Your «old» campus course will just receive the title of the current semester; its description will be adapted accordingly. In addition, you as well as your students will be able to see your new campus course along with the one continued in your Home. In the same way the options 1 and 2 work, students from previous semesters and new students will be enrolled automatically in such continued campus courses. Students from the previous semester who don't participate anymore in the course should be remove from groups manually.

It is possible to modify campus courses in the course editor according to your needs. These modifications have to be published later on.
