Add Content

In order to add content to your course, you'll first need to create a Content Area to add course materials to. Content Areas are essentially left side menu items.

CAUTION when deleting Content Areas

Keep in mind, when you delete a Content Area (i.e., a menu item in the course navigation) you are also deleting the content contained within the Content Area.

  • Turn Edit Mode "ON" in the upper right corner of BbLearn.
  • Hover over the PLUS sign above the left side course menu. No plus sign? Turn edit mode "ON".
  • Select Content Area.
  • Give the new content area a name (e.g. Lesson 01)
  • Check the Available to Users option to allow students to see the menu item.
  • Press Submit. Learn more about Content Areas.

Add your Content

Use the Build Content menu at the top of the course Content Area to add course materials.

Recommendations

Use Content Folders to organize your course materials within each Content Area.
