Course Merge: Child course with separate duration

    We currently have a need for child courses to have a separate duration from the Parent course. Occasionally we have students who take an I or incomplete in a course and have an extended period to complete the content. Since our courses use term duration we do not want to open the original course for the student especially if it was taught by an adjunct who no longer teaches here. We need to be able to create a child course marked in the course ID as an incomplete and merge it with a currently running course, however, it needs to have a separate duration as incomplete courses may not run the same length of time as the normal Parent course.


    This type of setting would allow for the duration of the child to expire stopping the students in the child from accessing the parent course. It would also move the course from the current courses column into the appropriate term column on the courses page.


    It would also be ideal if the child courses retain their term so that when the duration is over it would move to the appropriate column in the courses view page.
