6) Copying course materials from one course to another 


Under Administration go to Course Administration>Users>Groups. Give the group a name. In the groups listings, highlight the group you want to add members to by clicking on it, and click Add/remove users. Under the Potential members list, select the desired group member names, and click Add. Your users will be moved over to the Group members field. To set your course to handle separate groups, go to Course administration>Edit Settings. Find the Groups section and click on "Groups" to expand the sections. Change the Group mode to Separate groups and click Save.

8) Setting up the course grade book

Perhaps the feature with the most potential to go from simple to very complex very quickly, the grade book is, nonetheless, a critical part of a course. The number one tip to remember about the grade book is this: the Natural aggregation (calculation) method is built to handle nearly any grade book setup. It is the only method that allows the addition of a true extra credit item that is treated properly as such. It allows specifying weights for all items or some items as well as for the the entire grade book or just a specific category. It also allows specifying no weights and simply calculating in a typical sum of grades manner. NOTE: If you import content from a previous course to a current course, you will want to be sure to check the grade book immediately after the import and switch to the Natural method if you weren't already using it in the previous course. By default, all new courses (to which you are NOT importing content from a previous course) will default to using the Natural aggregation method for the grade book.
