When might you modify a course? 

  • Setting summer work, as students can simply work their way through the course via My Courses, without the need for a plan or assignments to be set. 

  • Teachers who want their students to complete the majority of nuggets within a course, perhaps removing a few strands from the full course, or bringing in some useful nuggets from another course. 

  • Setting a course from a different key stage without students being aware of this, eg renaming ‘English - KS2 Reading’ as ‘Year 7 Reading Course’ for an intervention Year 7 class.


How to create a modified course

  • Go to the My Courses tab.
  • Within the Public section, select the course that you wish to duplicate.
  • Click the grey circle in the upper right corner, then select duplicate.
  • Give the new course a name, subject and level. This is how the course will appear to students in their My Courses page, as well as to teachers in their drop-down course list in Class Admin.



How to modify the course

  • You can re-order the strands simply by dragging the grey section.

  • To add a nugget from another course, click ‘search in library’.

  • To delete a strand, select the grey circle with the minus sign in the top right corner. 

  • To delete an individual nugget, hover over the name of the nugget then click the circle with a minus sign.


How to publish your course

  • Once you are happy with the modified course, click Validate. Your new course will then be checked to ensure that no links are missing. You’ll then be able to click Publish.



  • The course will now appear under the My Organisation tab within the Course Builder page. You can go to Class Admin and assign the new course to your class.


Important to remember

  • Once a course is published, it cannot be unpublished. If you need to make changes, you will need to put the course in draft mode, edit the course and then republish the course, overriding the existing course. 
  • If the students complete a nugget from one course, and that nugget is present in another course, their nugget data will go with them if they move between the two courses.
  • Using modified courses outside of the summer holidays can limit the power of the recommendation engine as there will be fewer nuggets available to choose from. 
  • Name new courses clearly and coherently, as they will be visible and searchable by other teachers.
