Contacts is a place where you add profile information about yourself and other staff that is distributed to students. This is a good location to provide information about office hours, phone numbers, and other links to help students find the people who have important roles in the course
You can combine groups of selected contact information into folders. For example, you can create a folder named Teaching Assistants and assign all TA contacts to that folder.
On the Control Panel, expand the Course Tools section and select Contacts.
To edit, access the item's contextual menu and select Edit.
To edit, access the folder's contextual menu and select Edit.
If you want students to access the contacts tool often, you can add a link to the course menu for one-click access to the tool. You can customize the name of the link to fit your needs.
The new tool link appears last in the course menu list. Press and drag the arrows icon to move the link into a new position. Access the link's contextual menu to rename, delete, or hide the link from students, or permit guests to access the link.
