A Learning Module is a collection of Content Items focused on a specific subject that students can navigate at their own pace. For example, a Learning Module about the Microsoft Word can include lecture notes, links to websites with how-to’s, and assignments. Instructors can create a structured path for progressing through the items. The path can be set so that students must view content sequentially, or set to permit users to view the content in any order.

Set Edit Mode to ON to perform these functions.
