The Modules tool provides a straightforward way for instructors to build and students to navigate through structured course material. There are several ways to access the course content in Modules:

  1. From your site's menubar, choose Modules. The Table of Contents view will open.
  2. Depending on how your instructor has configured the site, you will see a collapsed list of modules with just the module name or an expanded list of modules and content sections. To expand or collapse the whole list, click the double arrows in the upper left. To expand or collapse one module, click the arrow next to the module name.
  3. If you click the name of a module, a page with that module and all of its content sections will open.
  4. Clicking the name of a content section, either in the Table of Contents view or within a module, will open that content section.
  5. You can use the Next and Prev links to move between content sections within a module or from module to module. Click the Table of Contents link to return to the original view.
  6. Within a content section, follow the directions provided by the instructor. You may need to open or link to a file (e.g., a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation, a video, an audio file) from within a content section. Keep in mind that you may need to allow pop-ups in order to access the necessary files. Also, you will need the appropriate software to access the files.
  7. Watch for the "What's next?" section. Your instructor may have further instructions for you.
