The Goals tool allows you to record the goals for a course, and to create categories to organize them. For example, you may want to create an Institution category to record your institution's general goals for all Students, as well as a category for each unit in your course.
You can also associate files and course content with goals. You can associate the following content with any goal:
- chat rooms
- discussion topics
- learning modules
- media library collections
- a syllabus
- web links
Associating content allows you to communicate to Students which items in the course will support progress towards the achievement of each goal. For example, if a goal is for Students to become familiar with Monet's paintings, you can create a link from this goal to a Media Library collection containing image files of the paintings.
You can set permissions to allow Students to view associated files and content.
