Course Modifications

Can I add a lesson from another course or semester?

If your school/district license allows and you are using our instance of the Buzz LMS, you can add in lessons and modules from other courses within your catalog.

Adding Content using the IDEAL Digital Library

  1. Open the Editor from the Main Menu
  2. Select “Add” for the module or at the bottom of the course.
  3. Select “Library”

From this screen, you can:

    • Use the search fields and dropdowns to find the content you’re looking
    • Select the library that you want to browse for

You can also search all libraries for a specific topic and filter by activity type if desired and click “Search”.

  1. Select the library you wish to search.
  2. “Preview” the activity and then check the box to add your desired activity to the cart.
  3. When finished, select the cart in the upper, right-hand corner to review your selections and “Copy” or “Link” to add the items to the course.

Should you “Copy” or “Link” the lesson item?

“Link”

Pro – Inherits updates made by the Accelerate Education curriculum team if there are any necessary edits or updates.

Con –  Quiz/exam questions cannot be modified by the program (admin or teacher).

“Copy”

Pro – Program (teacher or admin) can modify quiz/exam questions.

Con – Does not inherit updates made by the Accelerate Education curriculum team if there are any necessary edits or updates.

Best Practice

Any instructional lesson or quiz/exam that does not need to be modified should be “Linked” from the IDEAL Learning library to ensure your students benefit from any updates.
