6. When building your D2L course sites you can opt to drag an entire course, including all of its sections, over to the course site drag and drop area, or you can drag individual sections from a course into a drag and drop area. The ability to drag sections individually is helpful if you have two or more sections of a course that appear together in the left pane and you would like them to exist in separate D2L course sites in the right pane.

See the individual directions below for each approach:

Move an entire course, including all sections of that course, into a D2L course site:  Left click and hold on the white handle to the left of the course title, then drag the course over the desired drag and drop field at the right. When the desired drag and drop field highlights orange let go of the left click to place the course.

Move a single section into a D2L course site: Left click and hold on the blue handle to the left of the desired section, then drag the section over the preferred drag and drop field at right. When the desired drag and drop field highlights orange let go of the left click to place the course.



Tip: Did you place a section in the wrong drag and drop field and want to change it?
If so, left click and hold on the blue handle to the left of the errant section, then either drag the section out of the drag and drop field and release to remove it, or drag the section into the desired drag and drop field and release when it turns orange to move the section to another D2L course site. 

If you need to add more course sites to the right pane, click the Add Course Site button.
