[LON-CAPA-admin] FW: Crosslisting Courses

Good Morning Mark and Stuart:
As it turned out, there were a couple of issues, neither of which with
LON-CAPA.  Ultimately, the course section for the crosslisted course
matched a section in the original course.  Essentially, section "12" had
the students from the main course's section AND the crosslisted course's
section 12.  I changed the crosslisted LON-CAPA Section ID to be 96 (for
BIOL 496) and the students were then distinguishable to the instructor.
I'll be sure to make a note of this moving forward!

Thanks for your help!

Looking at the LON-CAPA course catalog for official courses for Spring
2016 for the vcu domain ( /adm/coursecatalog ) I see a course code:
BIOL-205-2016Spring (which has associated sections 001 through 016) with a
crosslisting of BIOL-496-2016Spring.

The crosslisting needs to include the section number, i.e., if you were
crosslisting section 001 of BIOL-496-2016Spring, the crosslisting entry
would need to be BIOL-496-2016Spring001 (i.e., it needs to be an
institutional course section code, and not simply an institutional course

By extension, if you need to crosslist all sections of
BIOL-496-2016Spring, you would need to include a separate crosslist item
for each section, i.e., BIOL-496-2016Spring001, BIOL-496-2016Spring002,
BIOL-496-2016Spring003 etc.

If you create your courses one at a time, as a Domain Coordinator via the
"Create a single course" web form, then in the the crosslistings textbox
you will enter a comma separated list of course sections crosslisted with
the current course, with each entry including the institutional course
section name followed by a colon and then the
(optional) section ID to be used in LON-CAPA, e.g.,

To change crosslistings after a course has been created, assume an "ad
hoc"  Course Coordinator role and use:

People > Users > Automated Enrollment > Change crosslistings
