You can create a Learning Module to build content that is organized in a clear, structured path for students to progress through the course.

The path through these items is displayed with a table of contents to students.

You add content and activities to Learning Modules and then manage in the same way as items in a content area.

This document will show you how to:

  • Create a Learning Module
  • Add files and set options
  • Organize table of contents
