Lingco has partnered with some textbook publishers and universities to bring their courses and content to our platform. Such template courses include: Alif Baa, Al-Kitaab 1, Al-Kitaab 2, C'est ce qu'on dit, Comme on Dit, Confluence Francophone, Francais Interactif, Gramática para la composición, Oui Je Peux, Panorama, and Rodnaya rech'.
To clone a template course once you have been granted access to it, follow these steps.
First, navigate to Courses on the left sidebar and click on the template course under your current courses. In this example, Al-Kitaab 1 is the template course.
Next, click on Clone Course on the right sidebar.
After you click Clone Course, you'll see this window will pop up.
You'll need to name your new course.
You also have the options to set a New Start Date and a New End Date for your course, select which modules you want to import into your course from the template course, and set new assignment start dates and end dates for specific modules.
NOTE: You can always configure these settings at a later time.
Once you're ready to clone the course, click Clone.
A banner will pop up on your screen letting you know when the course has finished cloning (this may take up to a few minutes).
Adding and Inviting Students
Once the template course has been cloned, navigate to your courses and click on your newly named, cloned course.
Next, click on Roster on the right side bar.
Click on Add and Invite Students.
You'll see this window pop up.
You can either give your students the unique course code, invite them via email, or share the link with them so they can access your course.
Payment and Textbook Access Codes
Once your students create a Lingco account and get access to your course, they'll see a banner on their screen prompting them to pay for access or enter a textbook code (if applicable).
NOTE: Students will have a 14-day trial period before payment or a textbook code is required. If they don't input a textbook access code or submit payment before the trial period ends, they will lose access to your course.
