Powerspeak- Creating a New Version

Use this page to customize a Powerspeak® course. This needs to be done for every new year and/or semester because the course is only good for one calendar year from the time the first enrollment is entered.

To follow the steps listed below, you will need to have "Create Custom Courses" checked under School Courses. To validate your permissions, click here.

  1. Under the Courses tab, select Legacy Manage Courses View.

    Powerspeak courses automatically lock up after a calendar year of the first enrollment. If students are put into a course much later than the first enrollment, they will not have sufficient time to finish. Each year or semester, create new versions of the course so the lock out date is appropriate. 

    If the course selected is already customized, the customizations will NOT copy over. A brand new based version of that World Language course is being created. 

  6. Click the pencil icon Update.png to change the name of the course.

  7. Rename the course. It is recommended using the semester and year in the name so it can easily be distinguished from older versions when enrolling students. Then click Save.
