8Content Area Instructors create course areas to serve as containers for course material. A top-level course area is called a Content Area.
9Learning Module A Learning Module consists of content items with an accompanying path for progressing through the items. Youcan decide whether students should view the content sequentially or whether they can view the content in any order that they choose. Any type of content, including blank pages, audio files, YouTube video, quizzes may be included in a Learning Module.
10Blank Page You can add a single page of content as a click-able link to a content area using the blank page tool. A blank page is different from a content item or folder in that there is no description that appears in the content area. Adding blank pages to a content area limits scrolling and streamlines the content area.
