UNO has set up an option within Canvas Help for instructors to merge courses. Click the ? icon and select Canvas Merge. Follow the prompts on the screen. The primary course you select will be the course you see in Canvas. The other course sections will not be viewable by you or your students. The merge function can only be done during the first four weeks of the semester. This is due to trying to merge when you have assignments and grading in the courses causes major problems for you and the students. Once course is merged here are two important items related to People and Gradebook functions.
Select People from within course and a listing of students appears. There is a column showing the course/section the student enrolled in. You can also view by course/section within the grade book.
Gradebook will list all the students from the merged courses. To display students from one of the merged courses select Showing All Sections. This option may assist if you are teaching an undergraduate and honors class and need to give different assignments to students.
