Note: To complete these procedures, you must be assigned a role having the necessary permissions. To determine your role, follow the directions in Participant roles. For a basic understanding of roles and permissions, see Permissions and roles: Overview.
Sections may or may not be populated with official course data, depending on implementation. If they are not automatically created, then you may create them if you have the appropriate role. Participants (e.g., students) cannot create or modify sections.
Note: If your implementation has an automatic feed, you will have the option to automatically or manually manage section membership from the Options page in the Section Info tool. Membership information can be based on official registration information, or you can discontinue section and membership updates from the registration system and manually control everything. However, when you select manual mode and then return to automatic mode, you will lose all the changes you made while in manual mode.
To create a section:
Section Info. This will open the Section Info tool.
Note: If you do not see "Section Info" on your menubar, you may need to add the tool. For more information, see Adding, editing, removing, hiding, or reordering tools.
Note: The name of a category is the only thing that differentiates it from other categories; the categories are otherwise the same. For instance, a Lab section will function exactly as a Discussion section in the Section Info tool.
