Adding content to your course

The Content tool is used to upload and organize files that you share with students. Content is organized in modules (folders) and files.

Before you start, think about how you want to organize your files. For example, do you want to structure the information by week, topic, or file type? Consider how to organize the information such that learners can easily locate the information they need.

NOTE: please ensure that you save each update before navigating to another page in D2L.
