Creating Course Sections

You can create multiple sections within a single, master course.

Before you begin, create the master course by following Creating and Updating Courses. Any changes you make in the master course assignments will also appear in the section.

Students can enroll in only one section at a time; if they register later for a different section, they will lose the work they have already completed in the original section.

CAUTION: If you delete the master course, all of its sections are also deleted.
