Customizing Course Settings

customization_menuUnder the Control Panel inside a HuskyCT course site, there is a”Customization” link. In this menu are “Properties” and “Teaching Style“.

The availability dates for the course site can be changed under Properties. Since the default start date for student access to HuskyCT sites is the first day of classes, some instructors choose to open up the site earlier by changing the start date under Properties.

The Teaching Style option is most often used to adjust the entry page for the HuskyCT site. In new “blank” course sites, the entry page is the Announcements page. In sites migrated from the old HuskyCT system, the entry page is often the old “Course Content” page. A nice feature of our new system is the ability to choose which link in the left-hand navigation menu will be the first thing that students see when they access the site.
