You can set registration dates for all sections or each section specifically (A). By choosing a specific start and end date for each section (B), students can register for your course only within that time frame, instead of all semester long. This gives you control over when students can register, prevents students from registering more than once, and regulates your scoring and reports. Be sure and click apply (C) when finished setting dates.
It’s quicker and easier to monitor who’s in your course when students aren’t continuously registering throughout the semester. Continuous registration can also affect your scoring and reports. Duplicate student accounts, or students registered for the wrong sections, will cause unnecessary and inaccurate scoring—and more work for you as you sort through students to determine who belongs where.
Setting registration dates is an easy way to reduce your course management and time spent organizing your students.
