Modules are used to organize your course content, buckets of material which can be time released or opened all at once. You can set up modules by any means needed, e.g., Week1, Week 2 or Chapter 1, Chapter 2 or by subject.

You must create a module before you can add files, links, or other items to Content.

  1. Click in the Add a module… box which is at the bottom of the Table of Contents panel.  It will become an input-text box.Fig. Add a Module
  2. Enter a name for the new module in the input-text box.
  3. ​Hit return (or enter) on your keyboard. The module’s name will now appear at the bottom of the Table of Contents panel, and the newly created module will be in the Contents section. 

By default, the status of a new module is set to “Published,” meaning it will be visible to students immediately. However, if it will take you time to completely set up a module, we recommend that you change its initial status to “Draft”, since that hides the module from student view.  (See A in Fig. Set to Draft, Add a Sub-module)

Sub-modules are optional and allow further organization of your content. You add them in to a module that you have already created.

  1. Go to the module in which you would like to create a sub-module.
  2. Click in the Add a sub-module… box at the bottom of the page to open a text-input box that will allow you to add a title for the sub-module. (See B in Fig. Set to Draft, Add a Sub-module)
