How to make your sandbox course “live”

So you’ve built your sandbox course, and now you want to make it “live” to students? To do so, there are a couple of steps you need to take.

  1. Request a shell for your live course. You must request a new course shell for each course, each semester. You can do so here.
  2. After your course has been processed, go to your sandbox course’s Control Panel. Select Packages and Utilities > Course Copy.
  3. Select “Browse” to find the ID of your live course that you’d like to copy into. (ID will have the format: BIOL-102-02-SP13 or ECON205-XX-SP13-04-05 if the course is cross-listed). Choose the areas you’d like to copy over, and hit submit.
  4. Your course content may take 10-30 minutes or more to copy, depending on the size of your course. Courses larger than 1 GB will not copy.
