Create Course Offering(s) [LTI]

Last Updated: Aug 03, 2019 11:09AM PDT

This guide is specific to setting up LTI course offering(s). Setting up course offering(s) as LTI results in the course sections requested from such a course offering being embedded in your institutional Learning Management System (LMS).

**********************

***Before starting the process of creating your LTI course offering(s), some preliminary work is required. First, let us know by email (help@carnegiemathpathways.org) you want to establish an LTI connection between your LMS and the Pathways Portal/Möbius, and share with us the IT/LTI contact(s) at your institution. We will then email the technical documentation that they can use to set up the link in your LMS. Once that is established, you'll be able to follow the steps below to create your LTI course offering(s).***

**********************

Log in to your Pathways Portal and navigate to your Facilitator Dashboard (you should a Facilitator Dashboard link on the right).



This is where Facilitators can execute actions and make changes related to Pathways courses at their institution.

In the run up to a new term, Facilitators must create the course offering(s) that will be run by their institutions during that term. A Course Offering is a combination of Term information and Content (a template).

You can create a Course Offering by linking your Term information with either a Base Template or with a Customized Template.

Remember:
Although customization can be done by the Facilitator at the template level before creating a course offering AND/OR by faculty in their individual course sections, extensive customization is better done by the facilitator in a course template.

Option 1: Course Offering w/ Base Template




1. Add new members (if necessary) to your Pathways Team through the People tab.

2. Input Term information.

3. Add Outcomes (if not done already).

4. Click Course Templates, select the appropriate content from the list of Base Templates, and click the +Course Offering button.

5. On the Add new offering page, be sure to select LTI from the Delivery method drop-down menu. Note that this option will only be available if the LTI link has been established. Complete the rest of the page, and then click the blue Add new offering button at the bottom when done.



6. Your Course Offering has been created. Now you and your faculty can go through the Request a new course section process (Remember: faculty can either do this themselves, or you can do this on behalf of a faculty).


Option 2: Course Offering w/ Customized Template




1. Add new members (if necessary) to your Pathways Team through the People tab.

2. Input Term information.

3. Add Outcomes (if not done already).

4. Click Course Templates, select the appropriate content from the list of Base Templates, and click the Customize this template button.

5. Enter a name, and click Add new template.

6. Scroll down the bottom of the Course Templates tab, and under Custom Templates you will see a listing for your template.

7. After a few moments, click to refresh the page. Click the Edit content button to launch into Möbius. Customize the content in Möbius (please read about customization options). Once customization is done, remember to click Finalize beside your template in the Portal.

8. Shortly after clicking Finalize, your newly customized template will be ready to be used in a course offering. Refresh the page to update. Click the +Create offering button beside your newly customized and finalized template.

9. On the Add new offering page, be sure to select LTI from the Delivery method drop-down menu. Note that this option will only be available if the LTI link has been established. Complete the rest of the page, and then click the blue Add new offering button at the bottom when done.



10. Your Course Offering has been created. Now you and your faculty can go through the Request a new course section process (Remember: faculty can either do this themselves, or you can do this on behalf of a faculty).
