What are Course Content Areas?
You can create course areas to serve as containers for your course material. Course areas enable you to present various types of content in an organized an d engaging way.
- The top – level course areas are called content areas, which you create, link, and manage on the course menu. Typically, courses contain multiple content areas.
- The next level of course areas includes folders, learning modules, and lesson plans. You create these course areas within an existing content area or other course area.
After you create a course area, you can create content items within it to present your course material. You can include content such as text, file attachments, links to websites, tests, assignments, and multimedia.
For example, you can create a content area called “Units” that contains learning modules for Unit 1, Unit 2, Unit 3, and so on. Each of the learning modules contains reading materials, assignments, tests, and links to tools to help student accomplish the learning objectives for each unit.
