You can add a single page of content as a clickable link in a content area using a blank page.

A blank page is different than a content item or folder in that there is no description that appears in the title of the page.

Students can only see the content on a blank page after clicking the link.

Adding blank pages to a content area limits scrolling and streamlines the content area.

This document will show you how to:

  • Create a blank page
