Online Course Versioning - Due Date Criteria Enhancement - Overview

Prior to this enhancement, when versioning an online course, administrators could select the Apply Previous Version Due Date option when configuring due date criteria, which would simply apply the exact due date for the prior version to the new version. For example, if the previous version had a due date of Feb 1, the new version would also receive a due date of Feb 1. Relative due date criteria, such as "10 days from Date Assigned," could NOT be applied to the new version using this option.

With this enhancement, administrators can still apply an exact due date from the previous online course version to the new version if desired, but they can also apply relative due date criteria to the new online course version by selecting the new Apply Previous Version Due Date Criteria option. This more dynamic due date setting provides increased flexibility when configuring due dates for reversioned online courses.

Note: This project is part of the largermulti-release Learning Compliance Scalability Initiative. The release of this project concludes the Learning Compliance Scalability Initiative.

Implementation

This functionality is automatically enabled in all portals using the Learning module.

Online Class - Publish

Grants access to two pieces of functionality:

  • Publish button on the Course Console, allowing administrator to publish a draft online class
  • Upload section of the online class versioning workflow

As of November 10, 2017, this permission does NOT provide access to the Content Uploader page.

Learning - Administration
Online Class - Upload

Grants access to the Content Uploader where an administrator can upload zip packages to create draft online classes. In addition, this permission grants the ability to upload a new zip package as part of the online class versioning process. This permission does NOT grant the ability to publish online classes. Without the permission to publish online classes, administrators with the permission to upload online classes can only upload and save online classes, which then must be published by administrators with the relevant permission.

As of November 10, 2017, this is the only permission which provides access to the Content Uploader page.
