For large courses with sections, there is an option within GauchoSpace to have course sites created for sections. In this setup, students would have access to a course site for the lecture and a separate nested course site for their section. Instructors would have access to the lecture as well as the separate section sites. Teaching Assistants would have access to their own section sites as well as the lecture site. We can also configure sections to be merged for TAs so that all the sections one TA is responsible are in one site.
Activities and resources posted on the main course site (lecture site) do not get pushed into the section course site, all sites are separate and distinct from one another. Because of this it is important to post course-wide info in the main course site and section-specific info in the corresponding section site. Grade totals from section courses can also be passed back into the main lecture site, if interested please mention this in your request.
If you are interested in using this course organization for your course email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
