EdgeEX — Updating course options of a Section


You must have the following permission to complete the steps on this page: EdgeEX Edit Course Information and Options for Assigned Sections.

To check your permissions, reference Checking your educator permissions.

Use this article to update the course options of a Section.


Modifications to any course option made at a higher level are applied to all lower levels unless it would override a change that was made to that specific course option already made at the enrollment level.

For example, imagine a scenario where an enrollment has the Free Movement option turned on for a course. If an educator turns Free Movement off for the course at the section level, the option will still be on for that student at the enrollment level.

If an enrollment already has the Free Movement option turned on and an educator modifies the course at the section level to allow students to increase video playback speed but not to have Free Movement, the student who has Free Movement turned on at the enrollment level will have both options turned on.
