Modules contain information about what's happening in users' courses, and they may be able to access commonly used tools. Modules appear on the My Institution tab or customized module tabs. From the Manage Modules page, administrators add and edit modules as well as control the content of modules.

To choose which modules appear on a tab, use the Default Content page for a particular content area.

Content Collection modules

If your institution has access to content management features, an additional set of Portal Modules is available:

  • Content Collection: Bookmarks
  • Content Collection: Institution Content
  • Content Collection: My Content
  • Content Collection: Organization Content
  • Content Collection: Search Content
  • Content Collection: Workflow Activities
  • Content Collection: Course Content

Making the Course Content module available to students might give them access to course content that instructors don't want them to view. This module displays all of the content in the Content Collection for the course, regardless of adaptive release settings.
