Moodle: Blocks: CPS: Request a Master Course

Instructors can use a Master Course to create and store content for a course to be taught in a future semester. Students do not get enrolled in Master Courses, so any content will need to be transferred to a teaching course before students can access it. Only one Master Course per course number per instructor is allowed.

For information about how to restore or import content into any Moodle course, see GROK article #20178 "Moodle: Ways to Restore or Import Content into a Course."

To Initiate a Master Course Creation Request:

1. Log on to Moodle.

2. Click on the Master Course link in the Course Preferences System block at the bottom of the front page of Moodle.
