The Course Home Page

 

Each course will vary depending on the school or department. However, there are some common features:

  1. Page header identical to the page header you saw upon logging in, including My Institution and Courses tabs.
  2. Course Menu – the access point for all course content. Instructors decide which links are available here.
  3. Content frame – displays the selected tool or Content Area. By default, when you enter a course, the Home Page appears. The instructor may change the default.
  4. Control Panel – The course administration menu that provides instructors with access to course features and functions and to other course utilities.
