Designing a Course - Creating Content
In an online course, content includes all material that you want to use in the course, such as course requirements, lessons, reading lists, assignments, and quizzes. Content can also include communication channels, such as discussion topics or chat rooms. The overall process for creating content is:
Add tools to your course. A tool is a function in the course software that allows you to perform specific activities. For example, if you want to create assignments, you add the Assignments tool.
If you are presented with the Quick Start screen, you can add tools from that screen. In the course, you can add tools from the Manage Course area.
If your course already contains content, you can modify it or create additional content.
- Use course tools to create content. After you create content, you can organize the content in a central location by using the Course Content tool.
