Creating Course Content Areas

Course Content Areas are used to organize all course content materials. Some default areas are "Course Documents" and "Assignments".

About Course Content Areas

Instructors create and manage Content Areas from the Course Menu. Instructors may decide to create additional Content Areas or edit existing Content Areas.

Adding a Content Area

By default, a specific number of Content Areas appear in a course.

  1. Point to the Add Menu Item icon (+) on the Course Menu.
  2. Select Content Area.
  3. Type a Name for the Content Area.
  4. Click the Available to Users check box to grant access to Students and other users in the Course.
  5. Click Submit.

 

If the Content Area contains no content, it is unavailable to students. Use the drop-down menu to the right of the newly created area for editing features. 

Managing Content Areas

Once inside a content area, use the drop-down menu to the right of the title to Edit, Delete, Show Icons Only or Show Icons and Text.
