Step Three:

A dialog window will appear. Enter the title of the page in the Title text box [1]. Use the Parent Page drop down menu [2] to set what page will be the parent page.  Select [Main] if you want to create a first level page that will be directly located on the left sidebar. If you want to create a sub-page, choose the appropriate parent page. Click Create Page [3].

Note: Parent pages can have two levels of sub-pages (i.e., “children” and “grandchildren”) to assist with organization.

Step Four:

A new content page is created. To add content to the page, click inside the text box and begin typing [1]. A content page can contain multiple types of items. Content arranged either chronologically or by topic is especially intuitive and easy for students to use.

For example, a single content page may contain files that need to be read for class, text (such as questions prompts), images, videos and powerpoints. By grouping these items together students will be able to access them quickly and reference between them.
