A blueprint course allows you to create content, assignments, announcements, etc. and push it out to a number of associated courses through course syncing. This is most useful in courses with shared content across many different sections taught by multiple instructors.
Blueprint courses must be created by a member of the CELT team.
CELT staff will create the empty blueprint course, add the requestor to the course, and communicate that this step is complete via the ServiceNow ticketing system.
CELT staff will associate the courses, initiating the first sync which will push all content to the connected courses, then communicate that it is complete.
Creating content in a blueprint Canvas course is exactly like creating content in a regular Canvas course. Use the Canvas tutorials listed in the Online Documentation section below to learn more about using a blueprint course.
There is no need to include information about the Blueprint course in your syllabus.
Students are unable to distinguish between a course created via blueprint and a standard Canvas course. Students will interact with the course as usual.
