What are Lessons for Instructors?

Lessons allow you to organize your content to help control the flow of your course.

Lessons are used to organize course content by weeks, units, or a different organizational structure that works for your course. With Lessons, you are essentially creating a linear flow of what you would like your students to do.

Each Lesson can contain files, discussions, assignments, quizzes, and other learning materials that you would like to use. You can easily add items to your Lesson that you have already created in the course or create new content shells within the Lessons. Course content can be added to multiple Lessons or iterated several times throughout an individual Lesson. Lessons can be easily organized using the drag and drop feature. Elements within the Lessons can also be reorganized by dragging and dropping.


When would I use Lessons?

You can use Lessons to:

  • Create prerequisite activities that students must complete before moving on in the course
  • Track student progress through a sequence of learning activities
  • Organize course content by unit, day, week, topic or Outcome
