Cross-listing Sections into a Single Course

Cross-listing sections into a single course allows you to manage assignments for all sections of a course that you teach in one course in Canvas.

Follow the steps below to cross-list sections into a single course.

Setting up the Target Course

  1. Pick one of the courses that was synced over from IC to cross-list the other sections into. Do not cross-list into a master course that you created by yourself. Grade syncing will not work if this is done.
  2. Click on the Settings option for the course.
  3. Verify that the course is in the right term. It should look something like 2019-Star Valley High School-S1.
  4. Change the Name to something obvious. I suggest something that includes the semester number and year in it to make it easier to cross-list to the correct course. (i.e. Comp Sci III S1 18-19)
  5. Click on Update Course Details at the bottom of the Settings page.
  6. Once this is done, copy the assignments and other course material from your master course into this course.

Cross-listing Sections Into the Selected Course

For each section that you would like to cross-list to another course, follow these instructions.

  1. Go into the course for the section you would like to cross-list into another course.
  2. Click on Settings.
  3. Select the Sections tab at the top of the window.
  4. Click on the section name.
  5. Click on the Cross-list this Section button at the left side of the window.
  6. Under Search for Course, type in the name of the course that you set in the previous steps. It should pull up a list with that course in it.
  7. Click on the section in the list.
  8. Push the Cross-list this Section button.

Once you have done this, the section will show up in the course you cross-listed it to.
