Editing a Page
Updating a page has very basic settings:
Name: This is the name of your Page, it will appear on the course/weekly/topic view of the course as well as at the top of the viewed page.
Description: This text may not actually be displayed to students. To make it available to students you will need to check on of the following other items:
- General: Display description on Course Page – to display it below the resource link on the course view
- Appearance: Display Page Description – to be displayed when viewing a page between the name and the page content
Display description on Course page: Check this if you would like all the content in the Description text box detailed above to be displayed on the course page underneath the resource link.
Page Content: This is the meat of your page, populate it with your syllabus, tables of information, a series of links whatever you like!
The sort of content you place on a page is limited only by your imagination and the Text Editor. For directions on adding or embedding different sorts of content see the text editor page for assistance.
Display page name: This box is, by default checked. Unchecking it will not show the Page resource’s Name when viewing the page allowing you to use a different heading within the Content of your page if so inclined.
Display Page Description: As mentioned above this check box will display the page description on the page view between the name and the page content.
