Create modules and submodules

Create modules and submodules

This page will show you how to create, edit and delete modules and sub-modules in your course. There are empty areas in your course which you will fill with content for your students, such as quizzes and files. Your modules and sub-modules appear in the Table of Contents, on the left-hand side of the screen. They help you to organize to your course.

To create a new module, follow the steps below.

  1. Go to your Course, and on the left side menu you will see Table Of Contents.
  2. Click on Add a module.
  3. Name your module there, and press Enter.

You can now repeat this for creating more modules.

To edit or delete a module, these are the needed actions:

  1. Go to your course, and on the left side menu you will see Table Of Contents.
  2. Click the module you wish to edit or delete.
  3. On the right side of the page, click the dropdown arrow next to the module title and select edit title or Remove Module.

To create a sub-module, select the module to which you wish to add a sub-module to and follow the steps below.

  1. Click module to which the sub-module is related and on the right side of the page click Add a sub-module.
  2. Name your sub-module and press Enter.

You can now repeat this for creating more sub-modules.

To edit or delete the sub-module, follow these steps:

  1. Go back to the left side menu where Table of Content is located and click the Sub-module you wish to edit or delete.
  2. On the right side of the page, click the dropdown arrow next to the sub-module title and chose edit or delete sub-module.

Once you have created your modules and sub-modules to your course site you might want to rearrange the order the modules, you can do this by simply dragging and dropping them.

The only module structure that should not be altered is the Course Information module. Here you will find text files that should be edited with the correct information related to your course.

You can also move content from one module to another module, or from one sub-module to another sub-module.

As you drag it onto the new sub-module, i.e. the target sub-module, you will see that the colour changes. And when you release, then that piece of content has been moved to the target module, or sub-module.

 

You can also move and rearrange modules and sub-modules around on the left-hand side.

Notice that as you drag a module up, you can either relocate it to there where the line is, or if you move it onto an existing module, the colour changes, and then when released, it has become a sub-module now. An indent in the text gives a visual indication that it is a sub-module.

 

For courses with a very intricate, detailed structure, you might find it helpful to use some numbering. Think particularly of the case where students are accessing your content on a mobile device, and there is limited screen space. The numbering helps them find their location in the course.
