Who can do this?
Instructors, Teaching Assistants, and Administrators can edit the Name and Description of any class in a course. The Date, Time, and/or Duration can be edited for manually created classes. Date/Time/Duration of capture schedule-generated classes (future or past) cannot be edited until the original capture is removed from the class. If the Schedule timing changes, the classes times will change correspondingly.
Since system-generated classes are named using the capture schedule name (which is also often the section name) or "Ad Hoc Capture" for those captures you initiated, you may want to edit the titles of your classes, to identify the subject matter for each class. For Collections, you may need to change the collection name to more accurately reflect the contents, if more are added.
Since you cannot edit the date or time for future classes created by the system or for past classes created to hold a scheduled lecture recording, you may need to create a new class to substitute for the schedule-generated class, to hold any ancillary materials.
To edit class or collection details (the steps are identical for classes or collections)
- Navigate to the class list for a section, either by clicking a Course tile on the Course tab or via a link in your LMS.
- Click on the edit icon located on the right side of the class or collection row (it looks like a pencil), as shown in the below figure.
- In the Edit lesson/Edit collection dialog box, edit the Name and Description as needed. If it is an instructor-created class or collection, you can also edit or remove the Date, Time, and/or Duration.
Remember that classes/collections must have EITHER a Name or a Date/Time/Duration. They can have both but they must have one or the other.
- Click OK.
The Class List refreshes to include the changes you made.
