Use the Default Delphinium Layout

When you load Delphinium for the first time in a course, Delphinium will detect whether or not this course was copied from a pervious course that uses Delphinium. If there is no previous version of the course that used Delphinium, Delphinium will walk you through setting up the course wit the default Delphinium settings.

You will need to provide some basic information, see below.

Course Organization

If Delphinium detects that your course has modules configured, it will ask you to select how your course is organized, or, in other words, how your students typically view course content.

If this is a new course and you have not yet added modules, but you plan on adding modules later, you can update this setting after Delphinium is configured using the Delphinium Course Settings tab.

Delphinium Homepage

Delphinium gives you the option to use your Delphinium layout as the homepage for your course. This ensures that students who enter the course are using Delphinium. 

You can use the Delphinium Course Settings to make Delphinium the home page later, or you can use Canvas settings to change the home page to something else if you make Delphinium the home page now.

Additional Information

Finally, Delphinium asks you to provide some additional information about your course like the start and end date and max points. You can use the "Count for Me" feature to find your max points, or you can add the max points value manually.

After you click "Done", the page will reload with your new Delphinium layout and a walk through tutorial will start to introduce you to Delphinium.
