Content is organized in D2L within modules. A module can contain all required elements needed for students to complete within a unit or a week. In addition to modules, the "Content Tool" includes an Overview, Bookmarks, Course Schedule, Table of Contents, and Course Content Administration options.
Overview - When users access course Content for the first time, they land on the Overview. Instructors can post information in the Overview, but, students will most likely only view this page once. If the instructor does not add content to this page, the Overview link and page is hidden from the student view.
Bookmarks - Topics the instructor bookmarks appear on the Bookmarks page. This is not a commonly used tool.
Course Schedule - The Course Schedule page lists course material due dates, start dates, end dates, overdue course activities, and other course events for the next seven days. If the instructor sets availability dates or a due date for a course object, it appears in the Course Schedule page and the Agenda view in the Calendar tool. If the instructor sets a due date for a course activity that has no end date or it has an end date that occurs after the due date, the activity appears on the Overdue tab for learners who miss the due date. The Overdue tab lists overdue course activities that learners can still complete before the item or course becomes unavailable.
The dates listed on this page are not exclusive to content topics; upcoming events include all events within the course from the Calendar tool. The number beside the Upcoming Events link indicates how many upcoming events you have.
Table of Contents - The Table of Contents panel lists all modules available in the course. The number beside each module name in the Table of Contents panel indicates the number of topics with completion tracking. The number beside the Table of Contents link indicates the total number of topics with completion tracking.
Course Content Administration Options - The course content administration options located on the Table of Contents page allow instructors to import and copy course content, bulk Course Admin content properties, manage course files, view reports on course content, and restore deleted course items.
