Course structures are predefined course materials such as course menu links, instructions, and content examples that you can add to your course to begin the design process quickly.

  • A selected course structure's content is added to your course and does not replace existing menu items and content in your course.
  • A selected course structure's links appear at the top of your course menu.
  • You can edit or delete course structure content in the same way as other created or imported content.
  • The optional content examples are guidelines for creating your own course material. This content is set to unavailable so that students cannot view it.

You can export or archive your course before you add a course structure to ensure you have an original version.
