When you teach the same class each semester, you don’t have to create a new course. Instead, you can “version” your course and assignments for the new semester. When you do this, you will want to clean up or update areas of your K-State Online course. The Announcements, Calendar, Assignments, and Files you’ve put online are not automatically updated with each new version of your course. You will have to go into each of these tools and decide what you want to update, what you want to delete, and what you want to archive.

For reference, use the Reusing Your Course checklist (PDF) created by the iTAC trainers. You can also review the online help — after signing in to K-State Online, click the Help link in the upper-right corner and search for the Reuse Your Course topics.
