Course offering properties

  • Active - Controls whether the course is currently active (available to users). Inactive courses are normally visible only to system administration. This setting is independent from the course offering’s start and end dates.
  • Content Sandboxing - Controls whether an HTML file executes scripts (such as JavaScript) within an iFrame only, preventing them from executing outside the iframe (against the domain).
  • Course Address Book - Controls whether the course offering is listed as a filter option in the Email inbox and address book. When selected, this setting allows users enrolled in the course offering to easily email other users in the course and in their course groups and section.
  • Course Offering Code - A short form for the course offering name, used to differentiate it from other course offerings. For example, Introduction to Science and Technology might use "ST100_Fall2012."
  • Course Offering Name - The full, recognizable name of the course plus the session (term, semester, etc.) in which it is offered. For example, “Introduction to Science and Technology Fall 2012” or “Principles of Accounting (W06).” Used throughout Brightspace Learning Environment wherever courses are listed.
