Quickstart: Course Manager

Course Manager, a CASUS web-based tool, allows you to create, organize, and manage courses. Below is an overview of the features Course Manager offers. To gain more detailed information about Course Manager, please access the online help accessible throughout your session.

  • Course list: After logging in successfully, the course list displays. On this page you can create new courses, edit or archive existing courses, retrieve course specific evaluation data and search for users.
  • Open/close archive: Courses no longer needed can be archived or deleted. Archiving courses makes the course unavailable to users; however, archived courses can be restored to be used again or for evaluation purposes. Once deleted, a course cannot be restored.
  • Create/Edit course:Establishing a new course or editing an existing course is a function of Course Manager. As an example, some of the options that exist allow you to establish criteria for your course, enter meta data of your course, add users, and activate cases.
  • Find user:Using Course Manager, administrators are able to search their course database in search of users. Should a user not be located, Course Manager enables administrators to invite and add users to a selected course.
  • Evaluate courses: Course Manager offers case specific course data organized in tables; presented as a diagram; or displayed in a downloadable format. Student case use log data offers time-on-case information, success rates for correct responses, case completion information, and reveals student responses.
  • Furthermore the data can be displayed in a table or as a diagram and downloaded.

More detailed information about the program can be found in the online help, which is accessible throughout your session.
