6.9.7 Create Linked Courses
Figure 6.76: Create Linked Courses
After you have defined the Master Template settings, content, and created
assignments, you can create linked courses and assign instructors to these
courses (Fig. 6.76). A linked
course contains the same content and settings as the Master Template.
Both the administrator and the instructor assigned to the course will
receive a message in their ALEKS Message Center containing important
information about the linked courses.
To add linked courses:
In the Master Templates List, click on the name of
the template to view the Master Template Summary. Alternatively, you can
check the box next to the template and then click Class
Locate the Linked Courses section and click Edit.
On the Create Linked Courses page, enter
the name of the Course CRN/Section and assign an instructor to the
individual linked course. (The name of the linked course will consist
of the name of the template plus the name of the CRN/Section.) There are
three options for the "Instructor"
Existing ALEKS Instructor
Select this option and then use the drop-down menu to select the name
of the Instructor teaching the linked course.
Instructor to be announced (TBA)
Select this option if the name of the instructor is unknown. The linked
course can be assigned to an instructor at a later time
Create a new Instructor
Select this option if the instructor does not have an existing ALEKS
account. Enter the title, first and last names, and e-mail address of
the instructor teaching the linked course. ALEKS will send an email
message containing login information to the instructor. If an email
address is not provided, the administrator will need to edit the instructor
account, change the password, and send it to the instructor at a later time
A maximum of 15 linked courses can be created at a time. To add
more linked courses, repeat the steps.
Once saved, you will receive a confirmation and arrive at the Linked Class
List page with the linked courses that have been created. You can create
another linked course by selecting New Linked Class,
edit the linked courses by clicking on the CRN/Section name of each class,
or complete the Master Template set-up process by clicking I am
done creating linked courses.
NOTE. There is no limit on the number of linked courses you can associate
with a Master Template. The interface allows you to link up to 15 at a
time: to add more than 15 linked courses, just return to the Master
Template Summary page, locate the Linked Classes section, and select
Edit. On the Linked Class List page, select
New Linked Class.
