Create a Module

Modules are the organizational building blocks of course content. Modules can be thought of as the drawers in a filing cabinet. Your course content such as activities, readings, documents, assignment information, etc. can then be thought of as the items inside these drawers. Sub-modules can be created inside of Modules to further divide and organize course content.

Why use Modules?

Use Modules in your course to:

  • Organize information to share with students
  • Create a structure for students to easily find assignment details and turn in work
  • Group related content and activities together
