How do I create a course? (Zulama – Passport – 2019)
When a teacher logs into Passport for the first time, they will be taken to the Courses page. The Courses page is the home page for a teacher. (On subsequent logins, the teacher will be taken to the last course they were working in.)
After logging in to Passport for the first time, a blank Courses page will appear. A course is necessary in order to enroll students or view teacher and student resources. From the teacher home page, click the Add Course button:
(If you have already added courses, the Add Course link appears at the top right above the list of classes:)
In the Add Course dialog box, fill out the following required fields:
Program: Select the program you’ll be teaching in this course. (For Zulama, this will always be Computer Science).
Course: Select the course you’ll be teaching in this class. Note: you will be able to assign and view resources from other courses, in addition to the level you select.
Title: Use a title that helps define the course(s) that you’ll be teaching. Students will look for this course name to verify they are in the correct course.
Co-Teachers: Passport now allows for the addition of a co-teacher. Co-teachers will have the same functionality as the primary teacher. This field is optional but does allow for the selection of multiple co-teachers if necessary.
Start Date / End Date: Select a start and end date for this course. On the End Date, this
course will deactivate so that a teacher cannot assign or evaluate new material and students cannot make changes to assignments. Both teachers and students will be able to access a deactivated course for up to 4 years after the course End Date.
Set Max Attempts: Select 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or Unlimited attempts. This selection will apply to the number of attempts a student will have to complete an eBook activity. This selection will act as a course default for any new eBook activity. This selection can be changed for a particular assignment or activity. Unlimited attempts will default any new eBook activity to a practice mode, allowing the student unlimited attempts on an activity.
Add Course: If you unable to select Add Course, please verify that all required fields are completed. Otherwise, click the Add Course button to complete your course creation.
Create Additional Classes: Once you have completed your course setup, you can return to the Add Courses link to create additional classes as needed.
