Inactivating a Course - Marking it as Inactive
There are a few different reasons why you would need to mark a course inactive. One of the most common reasons is the course has outdated information and there is a newer version of that course available. Some of the other reasons are the course is no longer relevant to a certain distributor or you no longer carry a particular product. Again, these are just a few examples of why a course would need to be inactivated.
Here is how to mark a course Inactive:
1. Log in and go to the admin side of your university
2. Go to Training > Courses
3. Select View Courses
4. Search for your course
5. Select the course you would like to inactivate
6 . On the first page of the course editor you can change the status from Active to Inactive.
7. Click “Save & Exit”
Remove Inactive Courses from Training Tracks
Inactive courses left in an active training track result in a training track which is unable to be completed by the learners.
When a university admin inactivates a course that is currently a part of a training track, a message displays that will alert the admin to which training tracks are affected. There are two options provided in the message.
Leave the inactive course in the Training Track(s). This option is great if you are just setting up training tracks and are perhaps staging things for a launch.
Remove Course from Training Track(s). This option removes the course automatically from all training tracks listed in the message. This saves you time from having to go to the training track editor and manually remove the course.
Note: If an administrator without access to managing training tracks tries to inactivate a course that is currently in a training track, they receive a slightly different message.
Leave the course active. This option turns the course back to active so that learners may continue to take the course and complete the training track.
Notify the University Admin of the inactive course. This option removes the course automatically from all training tracks listed in the message. A message is then sent to the university administrator regarding the course and the training track(s) affected. The university administrator will need to manually remove the course from the training track(s) to complete the process.
