Tip of the Week: Manage Dates

Instructors have the option within Springboard to copy their course materials from one semester to another. This is a great time-saving feature, but there is one problem – all of the original start, end, and due dates are carried over as well. Rather than edit each individual item to change the dates, there is another solution – the Manage Dates tool!

To access Manage Dates, click on Edit Course within your Springboard course. Next, click Manage Dates.

edit_course_manage_dates

The next screen displays a list of items in your course. You can filter the results by choosing Specific Tools, and then selecting or deselecting different tools. Click Apply Filter when you’re done.

filter_options_manage_dates

Select the items that you would like to modify by placing a checkmark next to each one. To set or remove the dates on the items at once, choose Edit Dates. To move the dates forward or backward, choose Offset Dates.

More information can be found on the Manage Dates portion of the Springboard Instructor Resources page.
