The default homepage for the Acadeum Course Share (ACS) Admin app is the Course Search page. To navigate to this page from elsewhere within ACS, select Courses from the main navigation on the left side.
Search for courses using a course code, title, key words, and/or descriptors. This will provide a list of courses where the key word is found in the course title and/or course description.
Courses versus Sections
Course search results can be viewed by Sections or Courses list. Courses listed may have more than one section available.
- Sections – lists all courses and corresponding sections available for each separately.
(Ex: MATH110 may have sections available in a Fall and Winter term and will list twice in the Sections)
- Courses – lists courses available only; click See Details in a course card to view available course sections and terms. Results may include courses where sections are not available. (Ex: MATH110 may have sections available in a Fall and Winter term but will list only once in the Courses ) [Learn more about requesting a section when one is not available.]
