Custom courses allow flexibility to meet the needs of your program or students. It’s easy to edit a custom course to update the course title, start date, or student instructions; or add or remove cases, Integrated Illness Scripts, and users assigned to your course at any time.

After your course ends, please help keep your program’s course list current by removing your old courses after you have downloaded the reports you need.

Editing Custom Courses

Note: Course reports always reflect the students and cases assigned as of the date you are accessing the report. If you remove cases or users from a custom course, they will be removed from the report as well, so you will not be able to see historic completion information.

You can edit any of the information that appears on the Courses page about a custom course at any time. This includes your custom course name, description, start date, end date, and person responsible.

1. From the Aquifer course page, open the course you wish to update and click the Edit button on the top right side.

Edit Custom Course

2. Update the information you wish to change, and click Update Course.

1. Open your custom course and click Add Cases.

2. You’ll see a list of content that is available for you to add to your course, including cases as well as Integrated Illness Scripts if your program has access to them. Use the search field to type in a case or an Integrated Illness Script to quickly find the content you want to add.  Select the content you wish to add by clicking on individual items, or using the Select All Shown button.

Simply click on Content Library in a separate tab, use the search and display features to make a list of the content you wish to include, and then return to the Add Items to Course page to select those cases and add them to your course.

Deleting a Custom Course

Help keep your program’s course list current by removing old custom courses. To help you manage this process, the person responsible for each custom course created after August 3, 2018, will receive an email notification when the course end date is reached, asking them to extend the date or remove the course. Any user with the role of Program Service Administrator, Curriculum Administrator, Lead Course Administrator or Custom Course Manager can remove a course.

Please be sure that ALL course users no longer need to access the course and all associated reporting before removing a course.

To remove, proceed through the steps below.
