To access the Content tool, click the Content link in the navigation bar at the top of the screen.
Understanding the Organization of Content
When participants access the Content page of a course site for the first time they will arrive at the Overview page. You can use the Overview page to provide participants a description of the course and to explain how the course will function, what is needed for success, etc.. There are two ways to add an Overview:
1. Enter the overview directly into the HTML Editor by clicking Add a welcome message, overview, or description, located beneath the Overview title.
2. Add a file you would like participants to see by clicking the Add Attachment link beneath the Overview title, then drag the file to the drag and drop field.
Tip: If you don't want to use the Overview page leave it blank and course participants won't see the Overview link in Content.
Content topics you bookmark appear in a list on the Bookmarks page.
To add a bookmark, click the Add Bookmark icon while viewing a Content topic.
The Course Schedule page lists upcoming start, due and end dates for the next seven days.
Please Note: The dates listed on this page are not exclusive to Content topics; Upcoming events include all events within the course Calendar tool. Click Full Schedule to view all past, current, and future course events.
