How do I add materials to my course?


Full Instructional PDF

The main way to add materials to a course is using a tool called a Page. Pages let you add text, Word documents, PDFs, links to web pages, and videos to your course.

First steps:

From the Gear icon in the upper right of your course page, choose Turn editing on.

Go to the section where you want to add the link. Click on Add an activity or resource.

Scroll down to PageClick PageClick Add.

Fill in the Name field. This is the name that will appear to students on the course page.

Then choose from any of the three options below.


Option 1: Type course material directly into the Page content field. This text will become the page you’re adding. Caution: Be sure to use the Content field, not the Description field, for your page content.

Option 2: Include a link to reading material (URL, PDF, or Word document)

Type a description in the Page content field to give students context for the reading material. This is the text that will appear on the actual page you’re creating. In the description, include the name of the resource with the word “Cick” preceding it. Use your mouse to highlight the name of the resource. Then click the Link icon.
