Nesting content sections

  1. From your site's menubar, choose Modules.
  2. Click Author near the top of the page.
  3. Check the box next to the content section you wish to nest. You can check more than one box. Modules cannot be nested.
  4. Click Left or Right near the top of the page to move the section(s) left or right. If you want to nest a section more than one level, you will have to check the box each time you move it.

    The Modules tool automatically renumbers sections as you change their nesting levels. Students can see these numbers when they click a module name to enter it, but from the Table of Contents view, students see a bulleted list with the appropriate nesting levels.
