Course Rollover FAQs

What is the MyAberdeen Rollover process?

The rollover involves creating new versions of course (or Programme) areas by copying content (including quizzes/tests) from last year's version of your course. No student data, group or grade center settings will be copied across. If a new course for the comming session is approved by the SENAS process then a course area will be created in MyAberdeen based on the appropriate School/discipline template. Rolled over courses (or Programme areas) will be set as unavailable to students by default. This is to give you time to work on updating your course and decide when students will be able to see it.

When will my courses appear in my Course module on my Home page?

At the beginning of the 2nd week in August the MyAberdeen interface will be updated to display the list of courses in the Course module on the Home page, as School of Education students start in mid-late August. Staff will need to navigate to the Courses tab to access previous years' course/Programme areas. However, students will see a list of their upcomming and previous two year's courses in tabs within their Course module on their Home page. Students can also access previous year's courses through their Courses tab.

What will happen to the current Academic Year's course areas?

They will remain visible on the Home page and Course module of MyAberdeen until courses are rolled over. After this date they will continue to be available to students and staff in the appropriate year's tab. For staff, this tab can be found as a sub-tab under the Courses tab. For students, this tab can be found next to their upcomming year tab in their Course module on their Home page.
