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:

Student view of the Content tool's Table of Contents page

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.
