A new tool that helps instructors combine enrollments from multiple course sections into one primary course site is now available in UC Davis Canvas.
The Cross-listing Assistant improves on the previous Canvas process for combining sections, which was complex for courses with multiple sections. As an interim measure, Canvas Support has been offering to cross-list sections for any UC Davis instructor upon request.
Improving the process has been a top goal this fall for the Information and Educational Technology team that manages UC Davis Canvas.
IET adapted the Cross-listing Assistant from a tool created by the University of Indiana. It uses a checkbox-style interface, and more naturally combines other sections into the course in which an instructor is working.
Cross-listing is helpful for instructors who teach several sections of the same course and want to manage course data in one location.
