How Do I Create a New 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.


Open Modules


In Course Navigation, click the Modules link.


Add Module


Click the Add Module button.


Add Module Name


Type a name in the Module Name field.


Lock Module Date


If you want to lock the module until a specific date, click the Lock until checkbox [1]. Select a date and time on the Calendar [2].


Add Module Prerequisites


If you have added at least one module to your course, you can require a prerequisite module. A prerequisite module means students must complete the added modules before they can view the new module. To add a module prerequisite, click the Add prerequisite link.


Add Prerequisite


In the Prerequisite menu [1], select the module that should be completed before the new module.

To add additional prerequisite modules, click the Add prerequisite link [2].

Click the Add Module button [3].


View Module


View your created module.

By default, your new module is unpublished.
