This SOLE Spotlight focuses on preparing your courses for the upcoming semester. There are two options to prepare a course, you can request a new copy of your previous course (recommended!) or you may archive, clean up and re-use your existing course.
It is very important that should you choose to re-use a course, you should always utilize the two wizards in your course's Control Panel to complete the archive and cleanup processes:
1) Archive Wizard provides you the State of the Site download to archive important data you may need to revisit (e.g., assignment submissions, files and submissions, discussion posts, grades, etc.)
2) Cleanup Wizards is used after you archive your course to prepare it for the semester. Please use these with caution as they can change or remove content in your course based on your selections.
Then, once you are ready, you can watch the When to Add Users in SOLE video on our YouTube channel to a self-paced and detailed tutorial.
We realize this process can be intimidating since it is only done a few times a year. Please contact SOLE Support to answer any questions or concerns you may have in preparing your course for the upcoming semester.
