Adding Content Areas to the Course Menu

Content Areas allow instructors to organize content within the course menu.  Content areas can be created for items such as the course syllabus, schedule, course units, assignments, and exams.  This guide will demonstrate how to add a content area to the course menu.

Creating Content Areas

1. In the course menu, hover over the Add Menu Item button (denoted by the  + sign) at the top of the course menu. You must have Edit Mode turned ON.

 

2. Select Create Content Area.

3. You will now see a screen similar to the one below labeled Add Content Area.

  • Name: Enter a name for the content area you want to create
  • Available to Users: Check the box to make the item available to students.  Otherwise, students will not be able to see content uploaded to the link.
  • When finished, click Submit

The new content area will appear at the bottom of the course menu

Remember, Content Areas can be created and made unavailable to users until needed.

Adding Items to a Content Area

1. In Edit Mode, access a Content Area from the Course Menu, by clicking on the name of the content area, e.g. Course Content.

2. On the Action Bar, click Build Content button and then select Item beneath the Create column.
