Add, Delete, and Reorder a Learning Module


In this document you will learn how to add, delete and customize learning modules.


Learning modules are collections of content items focused on a specific subject that students can navigate at their own pace. For example, a Learning Module about the solar system can include lecture notes, links to websites with pictures of all the planets, and assignments. Instructors can create a structured path for progressing through the items. The path can be set so that students must view content sequentially, or set to permit users to view the content in any order
