How are you handling child courses?

Hello everyone!


I am hoping to find a better way to handle our combined courses. Say instructor A creates a course with 10 sections. They now have the one "master" course that they work in, and 10 unavailable "child" courses. We recommend that they hide them in their course list but it causes a lot of confusion - particularly about what course to use and perceived duplication, not to mention lengthy course lists.


We have investigated:

  • making them hidden in the course list by default (our preferred solution but we haven't figured out how to do it)
  • making their enrollment disabled or unavailable in the child courses (would require some changes to our course creation process)
  • removing them from the child courses entirely (would require a lot of changes to our course creation process)


Is anyone doing anything different? Is anyone using one of the methods we investigated? I would love to hear how others are dealing with this.
