Requesting a course roll-over instructions

From MIIS Wiki

What is a course roll-over?

Course requests and roll-overs are managed by the ITS Help Desk.  A roll-over request is made when you want to carry forward or transfer all content, activities, and other resources from a Moodle space used in a previous academic term, but you also want to empty that Moodle space of participant data.  A roll-over allows you to edit a course outline of materials based on a previous term.

Directions for requesting a course roll-over

1.  Go to the elearning course request form.  

2.  Complete the five data fields on the online request form (see images below).

  • Course Title

  • Reasons for Wanting this course 
    • NOTE: In the Reasons for wanting this course field, indicate that you want to "roll-over" a previous course.  Be specific about which course you want to transfer into the new course space.  Use the course naming convention outlined below; e.g. IP 555 SP09.  It is also helpful to list the course name for cross-referencing purposes. 101.png
