Lessons is a tool that allows an instructor to organize resources, activities, and media on a single page. You can have as many Lessons pages in your site as needed. With Lessons, instructors can organize the course by unit, module, week, topic, or any other grouping that makes sense for the site.
Each Lessons page can be customized to suit the needs of the lesson, including links to other site tools, conditional release of items and content, student content pages, LTI tools, and more.
Some page layout features of the Lessons tool include:
Block style page layout to group items on a page
Multiple sections on one page
Multiple columns in one section
Flexible column design (2 columns in one section block, 1 column with double width, and a variety of column background color)
To access this tool, click on the Lessons page title in the Tool Menu of your site.
The Lessons tool is often renamed to something else, and may appear multiple times in a given course. Click on the Lessons page title in the Tool Menu to display the page.
Note: The default or blank Lessons page contains text and images that explain the basic functionality of the Lessons tool.
