Overview

A Series in Opencast is the equivalent of a course which typically contains multiple Events that occur across a defined period of time. Here is an example of a Series which consists of four (4) events:

  • Series Name: Better Development Through the Use of Scrum Techniques
    • Event 1: Introduction to Scrum
    • Event 2: Sprint Planning
    • Event 3: Daily Scrum
    • Event 4: Sprint Review Meeting

You can access the Series page from the Main Menu > Recordings > Series

How to edit a Series

Use the edit icon ( icon_hamburger ) on the Actions column to edit a Series. Metadata, Access Policies and Themes are being saved automatically when the cursor leaves the field or an option is selected.

How to delete a Series

Use the ( icon_delete ) icon in the actions column of each row to delete individual series. To delete series in bulk, select the items to be deleted and then from the Actions menu, select Delete Series. Confirm the action in the modal.

Note: Deleting a series does not delete the Events that are part of it. In order to delete all events as well, refer to the How to delete events section.
