  3. Do one of the following:
    • To edit the contents of the topic, from the context menu of the topic, click Edit HTML. Make your changes.
    • To replace the topic, from the context menu of the topic, click Change File. To upload a new file, click The upload iconUpload. Follow the prompts to add your new file.
  4. Select the "Notify students that the content has changed" check box.
  5. If you want to describe your update changes, enter a description in the "Add a summary of the changes" field.
  6. If you want learners to revisit the topic to complete the activity, select the "Reset completion tracking" check box.
  7. Click "Update."
