Editing and Managing Course Areas and Content

After you build course areas, such as Content Areas, Learning Modules, Lesson Plans, and folders, you create content within them. All of the items and course areas, except Content Areas, are edited and managed in the same way. By clicking a content item’s Action Link and accessing the contextual menu, you can change settings, modify availability, create metadata, and turn on options such as review status, adaptive release, and statistics tracking. You can also copy, move, and delete content. You can drag content to new positions in the page and hide content details to save screen space.

Note:  To learn how to reorder, rename, delete, and change the availability of Content Area links in the Course Menu, see How to Manage Content Area Links.
