How to sync course content

Syncing shares content among different sections of the same course in the same term.

  1. Go to the Course > Settings view.
  2. Click Sync.
  3. Check to confirm.
  4. Click Save to finish.
  5. Repeat these steps for each course section you wish to sync.

Stuff worth remembering about syncing...

  • Any changes made to the content in one synced section affects all of the other synced sections!
  • Populi syncs all course content—files, supplies, reading list, assignments, lessons, and tests (there's no picking-and-choosing as with cloning).
  • Synced tests only sync the assignment and test name. You will need to import questions into the synced version of those tests.
  • Synced discussions only sync the discussion title and topic.
  • Syncing does not affect rosters, grades, attendance, faculty, or schedules.
  • It only works with sections of the same course (i.e. MATH101 won't sync with MATH102).
  • If you sync courses after grades have been entered, you will lose those grades. If you're gonna sync courses, do so at the beginning of the term, and not the end!
