What is a Metacourse?

A metacourse is a parent course that combines two or more sections in Moodle. If you are teaching more than one section of the same course, this allows you to deliver one copy of the course content to all the sections. The child sections handle enrollment, while the parent metacourse handles the content. The parent is the lowest CRN number listed.

Requesting a Metacourse

If you need a metacourse, please email and include the following information:

  • The course registration number and title (e.g., HST 414: Intellectual History)
