How do I add subpages to a lesson page?

Instructors can add subpages to a top-level lesson page. A top-level lesson page is a lesson page that is listed by name in the tools menu. Subpages are connected to top-level lesson pages by a link or a button. Select the Index of Pages link in the top right corner of a lesson page to view the hierarchy of a top-level lesson page and its associated subpages.

Accessing the Lessons tool

Accessing the Lessons tool

To access the Lessons tool, select the Lessons link in the tools menu.  

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.
