Creating sections or projects

Last updated about 2 months ago

Course sections

Course sections are very convenient to split up a course in different sections. But before creating sections, think about what you want to do in this section. Only create a course section if it is undesirable to have this communication in the course page itself. We emphasize this because a possible downside of sections is that communication will be spread over multiple pages, making it more difficult to find back older information. If you just want to discuss a different topic in a section, it might be enough to discuss the topic in the course using a specific label. Feel free to discuss this with us!

That being said, creating sections is easy too! Only staff members are allowed to create them, at any time.  Go to your course and then to Section > Create section.  If you do not see a Section tab in your course, go to Manage > Course options to turn Course sections on.

After creating a section, you will become a staff member. When you open the section, you can invite students by going to Members > Invite. You can also edit your role or remove yourself again.

Projects

Projects are what makes Projectcampus unique. We recommend you to use them, because it helps you and your students to keep up to date and to reflect on the learning journey of each student or each team. Creating projects is very easy to do. You can create them before inviting your students or afterwards. You can also ask students to create their own project pages. Just go to Projects > Create project.

After creating a project (and if you are a staff member) you will become the coach of the project. When you open the project, you can invite students by going to Members > Invite. You can also edit your role or remove yourself again.
