Building a Course Using Modules



Modules (default course Home Page) are used to organize course content by topics, weeks, units, or a different organizational structure. Modules essentially create a one-directional linear flow of what students should do in a course.

Each module can contain Files, Discussions, Assignments, Quizzes, Links and other learning materials. You can add existing content (e.g. Assignments) or create a new entry (e.g. Page or Discussion forum) within the modules. Modules can be easily organized using the drag and drop feature. Elements within the modules can also be reorganized by dragging and dropping.
