About Content

Use the Content tool to access course materials, complete required activities, and monitor your completion progress on topics contained within each course module.

The Content tool has four main areas:

  • Course Overview  An overview of the course and information about course expectations.
  • Bookmarks  Lists the topics you bookmark. Click the Add Bookmark icon while viewing a topic to add it to your bookmarks list. The number beside the Bookmarks link indicates how many bookmarks you added within the course.
  • Upcoming Events  Lists course material due dates, start dates, end dates, and other course events for the next seven days. Dates listed on this page are not exclusive to Content topics; upcoming events include all events within the course from the Calendar tool. The number beside the Upcoming Events link indicates how many upcoming events you have.
  • Table of Contents  Browse course materials and assignments here. The number beside a module listed in the Table of Contents indicates how many topics within the module you need to complete. The number decreases as you work through course materials.

The Content tool enables instructors to post and organize course content so that information about course expectations, course syllabus, lecture notes, and important dates display to users clearly.

Course materials you post in Content can include documents, images, media files, URL links, and activities (e.g. discussions, quizzes, surveys, self assessments, and dropbox folders). You can add release conditions, grade items, and learning objectives to topics to ensure users navigate through course materials while fulfilling specific course requirements and learning expectations.

You can also monitor class and user progress as students work through course content. Completion tracking allows instructors to determine how content topics are set as "complete" (set automatically by the system or manually by the student). You can track these results on a student-by-student and class basis by viewing user progress and class progress in the User Progress tool. See Viewing class progress and user progress in Content for more information.
