How do students add and organize content on pages in Lessons?

After an instructor enables student content in Lessons, students can create their own pages. Students can add rich-text content, videos, images, embedded PDF files, and more.

Add content to a student page.

Go to Lessons.

Select the Title of the page (e.g., Lessons, Activities, Week: 1) from the tool menu in your site.  

Note: The instructor may have renamed the tool, or there may be more than one instance of the tool in the site. Contact the instructor if there is any question about the location of student content.

Select Add Your Own Page.

Select Add Content.

Select the content type.

Select the type of content to add to the student page:

  1. To add text or other content, such as images and files from Media Gallery or My Media, using the Rich-Text Editor, select Add Text.
  2. To embed content, such as external streaming videos and PDFs, on the page, select Embed content on page.
  3. To add links to content on the page, select Add Content Link.
  4. To add a subpage (a linked page which can contain content), click Add Subpage.

Organize content on a student page.

Go to Lessons.

Select the Title of the page (e.g., Lessons, Activities, Week: 1) from the tool menu in your site.  

Note: The instructor may have renamed the tool, or there may be more than one instance of the tool in the site. Contact the instructor if there is any question about the location of student content.

Select your student page.

Select your name or your group's name from the list of student pages.

Select Reorder.

To reorder content on a student page, select Reorder in the gray menu bar near the top of the page.

You can also move items using keyboard commands. Select the item you want to move, and then use CTRL + the direction keys (arrow keys or i-j-k-m) to move it.
