Use this page to learn how to customize a course.
Frequently Asked Questions:
You need these three permissions:
Create Custom Courses: This permission allows you to create a new course using an existing course as a template.
Customize Course and In-Flight Enrollments: This permission allows you to remove content from a course and all enrollments.
Edit Course Options: This permission allows you to edit course options at any time, including after you've customized a course.
The following course types have specific requirements, and customizing them could create problems. Please review these guidelines before choosing one of these course types.
- Advanced Placement® Courses: Edgenuity’s AP® Courses have been approved by The College Board and per their requirements, students must complete these courses in their entirety. You may choose to add content or reorder units of study, but if you remove content, you must submit the course to The College Board for approval.
- Virtual Tutors Courses:These courses include diagnostic pretests and post-tests. If you remove content from a Virtual Tutors course, the pre- and post-tests will automatically adapt to exclude the content you removed during the customization process. However, if you add new content into a Virtual Tutors course, that content will not be assessed in either the pretest or post-test, and all students will be required to complete all new content you add. They will not be able to test out of these new lessons.
- CTE Courses: Career Technical Education courses (like 3D Art, Game Design, etc.) have a unique course structure. You can reorder lessons in these courses, but because these courses are project based, you should avoid adding new content.
- World Language Courses: The exams in these courses are pre-populated which is why customization is not encouraged.
Yes! They can assign educators to their own sections of courses, and then edit their permissions so they are only allowed to customize the courses they've been assigned to by an admin or registrar.
No, these docs are not dynamic, so they will not update with customizations. This is also true of any student and teacher resources at this time. Clients should reference the original courses for the related course documents.
When the both exams are included in the course, then the first exam will only include questions from the first semester, and the second exam will only include questions from the second semester. However, when the first exam is customized out of the course, the final exam would include 50 questions randomly pulled from the entire course - both first and second semester content.
You can fully customize a course until there are enrollments. Once there are enrollments, customization is limited to removing content.
Each lesson varies, but a good estimate is between 60 and 90 minutes long.
Yes, but it should be noted that the assessments in these courses are not dynamic so students will still be assessed on the content.
The assessments are dynamic and will assess students on the content that feeds it. For example, if a lesson is moved from unit one to unit two, the lesson will be assessed in the unit two test.
Removing only a quiz does not affect the question banks of unit/topic tests or cumulative exams. To remove a lesson's content from the tests and exam banks, the entire lesson needs to be removed.
If there are not enough questions to populate an assessment, then the assessment will be bypassed.
Our Purpose Prep, eDynamic Learning, World Language LMS, Powerspeak, and Career Electives courses do not have assessments that adapt to customizations.
The student's course will remain customized as-is if the changes do not benefit the student*. We assume if an enrollment is customized, the teacher’s intent was for this particular student to have a different course structure, so we do not override any enrollment changes at the course level.
*If a change is made to the course level that is not related to the student's customization, then their course will be changed. For example, a student's course has all assessments removed. Later at the course level, an educator removes the last unit. In this case, the student's course will be adjusted so they don't have to do the assessment or the last unit of content.
