How do I add a module?

Modules are used to organize course content by weeks, units, or whatever organizational structure works for your course. With modules, you are essentially creating a one-directional linear flow of what you would like your students to do. Once you create modules, you can add content items, set prerequisites, and add requirements.

Note: If the Course Home Page is set to modules, modules can be added and managed directly from the Course Home Page.
