EdgeEX — Customizing a course in the District Catalog


You must have the following permission to complete the steps on this page: EdgeEX Customize Course in District Catalog.

To check your permissions, reference Checking your educator permissions.

Use this article to customize courses in the District Catalog.
Once a course is customized in the District Catalog, the updates to the course are automatically applied to courses that have been pushed to the School Catalog. They are also applied to all sections and enrollments. However, these customizations do not override any customizations that have already been made to a course at the enrollment level. For example, if a teacher has customized a course at the enrollment level to remove activities for concepts the student has already mastered, those activities will not be added back when changes are made to the course in the District Catalog.

  2. On the left navigation, click Content.
