Be Careful

If you're following the storyboards, due to time constraints, only the "build" path was selected for implementation in 2.6. Creating a site by import, copy, and template will be introduced in future iterations.

The link to create a new site can be found in the My Sites widget or in
the Join a Site page

3. Create a Site: Course

The first feed is simply meant to get the field information (variable and configurable in Sakai) for course setup. This will not be called if not setting up a course site. Choices for the fields may be not set.

NOTE: This will probably actually have to be 4 separate feeds (term, subjects, courses, sections) rather than one

  1. For part 3 I think we need an additional field here (the Academic Term) so we probably need a redesign. Also, it should be noted that this is a sequential thing that works like so: Pick the term THEN pick the subject THEN pick the course THEN pick the section (or alternatively it allows this data to all be entered manually)
