Prepare Your Course Checklist

Every course or lab section on the master schedule has a corresponding Brightspace course shell created automatically. These courses are empty and require that you copy your course content from a previous course into the new course, or create new content each term. Additionally, each term you will need to edit your course content availability dates, due dates, syllabus, full course schedule, etc. Below is a checklist of important items to edit as you prepare to teach in the next term.
