Course Syllabus/Schedule Pane

Course Outline Tab. The Course Outline tab displays the course outline, and allows you to add, edit, reorder, or delete course items (if you have the appropriate rights). Course learning activities are grouped into Modules. These modules may be renamed and may display in your environment as "Weeks" or "Units", depending upon the options that were chosen when the course was created.

Course learning activities may be grouped further by adding folders to modules. You may assign objectives to these folders, for example, if you want to divide a module into lessons and assign a few module objectives to each lesson.

Use the Edit menu to modify the properties of or re-arrange the items in the Syllabus/Schedule window. You may also drag and drop the items to re-arrange them and double-click to modify them.
