Administrators can use the Course Updater to update course start and end dates, as well as whether a course is active or inactive. You can search your organization's courses and update a group of courses at the same time.
When to use Course Updater
The Course Updater should be used in systems where course start and end date and course status are not already being controlled by another mechanism. For example, if course dates and status are controlled using SIS integration, use of the Course Updater is not recommended. The SIS integration may revert course parameters back to SIS values. This depends on the type and configuration of the SIS Integration; contact your D2L Account Manager or Project Manager for more information.
The Course Updater is not recommended for situations where Instructors are able to update course dates and active status. The Course Updater is meant to update course dates and active status to a common value, usually based on semester or department. The Course Updater overwrites values set by individual system users which could lead to confusion.
