Go to Lessons.

Select the Title of the lesson page from the Tool Menu in your site.

Instructors using multiple instances of the tool in a single course site may wish to rename the instances to avoid confusion. Also, the tool may appear with another name if site templates are used to create course sites.  In the Activities Grid template, the tool is named the Activities tool; in the SCPS template, the tool is named the Class Activities tool; and in the Activities Menu template, multiple instances of the tool are automatically added, each named for a week in the course. All of these names may be changed according to instructor preferences.  

The default page of each instance of the tool contains text that provides more information on the tool and its use.

Add pages.

To create a new lesson page via the Lessons tool itself:

  1. Select More Tools.
  2. Select Add More Pages.

Create and save pages.

Enter a Page Title and the number of pages to be created, and select whether the new pages should be copies of the current page, if desired; then select Save.
