Moodle 3: Blocks: CPS: Cross-Listing a Moodle Course

Moodle 3: Cross-Listing a Moodle course

      Cross-listing allows an instructor to create a single Moodle course that combines multiple courses that they are teaching. Students in different courses and sections will be enrolled as different groups in the single Moodle course.

NOTE: It is recommended that you cross-list your courses before importing materials in either of your individual courses. When the cross-listed course gets created, it is an empty course and your original individual courses will be removed. Once your course is crosslisted, you can then import or add any content.

Initiate a Cross-Listed Course

1. Log on to Moodle.

2. Click on the Cross-listing link in the Course Preferences System block on the Home level of Moodle.
