Campuses (Organizations)

callout-successThis feature is available to Site Managers. 

 

The cornerstone of Informetica's hierarchy is the campus (also known as an organization). A campus is a common space in which products (e.g. courses), learning activities, and learners coexist. Each campus can meet differing needs of user audiences entering the learning management system, such as a unique course library. Campuses are also essential for segregating report functions. Site Managers may opt to delegate the management of content, users, and reports to a campus manager giving the campus some or full independence.

Examples of campus environments:

  • Regions or Locations
  • Companies or Associations
  • Departments or Divisions
  • Work Areas

Delete a Campus

callout-infoA deleted campus is permanently removed from the system.  Deleting a campus removes associated campus emails as well.

 

The system prompts you if you cannot delete a campus and lists the associated elements preventing the deletion. You must first reassign any associated elements such as users and user groups. This prevents creating disassociated elements in the system, which can have serious affects on users.

  1. Log in with a Site Manager account.
  2. Select Campuses from the Users tab.
    campus-add-user-groups
  3. Select one or more campuses by clicking within the selection box(s).
  4. Choose Delete Selected from the Campus Option menu.
