- You can view your global topics on the Pending Topics page until their opening date arrives, when they will be moved automatically to the Current Topics page.
If you're teaching an older class for the first time, the Help Desk can import global topics for you from a previous instructor. Here's what you need to do:
- Check your Pending Topics page. If there are no discussion or assignment topics listed, then you need to have global topics imported.
- Your director must make this request. Contact your department and ask the director to contact the Help Desk.
In contrast, topics for discussions, exercises, and assignments in newer classes (brand-new and rebuilt) are created as part of the course-build process. We call these course topics.
