You can use the Duplicate button in SIT Alemira Open edX Studio to duplicate a section and all its subsections and units.
Duplicating a section in a published course makes the section and its subsection immediately visible to the enrolled learners. All units in a duplicated subsection are in the Draft (Never published) state.
When you duplicate a section, all enrolled learners will immediately see the section and subsection, but not the unit in the draft state. Clicking the subsection will result in a Page not found message.
This is the default behavior.
The recommendation is to hide a duplicated section from learners until you are ready to publish it.
To hide a section:
- Log in to SIT Alemira Open edX Studio.
- Navigate to your course.
- Click the settings gear icon next to the section that you want to hide.
- Click Visibility > Hide from learners.
By default, sections and subsections are available to all enrolled learners in a published course.
The draft and published states do not apply to sections and subsections; they only apply to units.
