Change Course Format

Why Do This

By default the course center content area is divided into sections by topics. You can change this to a weekly format so that each section displays the week and dates. The start date can be set to any day of the week, which will determine how the weeks are displayed when using the weekly format.


  1. Log onto Cougar Courses and go to the main page of your course.
  2. Click on the gauge icon in the upper right corner. Choose the edit settings link in the Course Administration section.
