  3. Understanding course pages
  4. Adding content and resources
  5. Designing great activities
  6. Setting up your course homepage
  7. How do I use page templates and learning design patterns?

 


For example, in our example Sustainable Thinking course, Module 4: Sustainable Living might cover the following topics:

  • Clothing
  • Products and Services
  • Plastic Packaging and Rubbish
  • Water and Electricity Consumption
  • Calculate your ecological footprint

 Each of these topics within the module would then be fleshed out with relevant content, resources and activities.


The topics within a module would become Pages in OpenLearning. Pages are containers that allow you to add and arrange content, media, and activities. They are the main building blocks of courses. 

Follow the steps below to set up pages within your modules.

Go to Course Setup > Content.

Scroll down to the module you would like to create or add a page in.

To add an existing page, type in the name and select it from the dropdown.

 

To create a new page, type in the page name and press Enter.

(Page names are limited to 100 characters)


Watch the video on creating and editing a page below:

Each page that is created is visible to learners from the Learning Activities tab.

Once you have created your page, it's important to add a page thumbnail, otherwise, your course will look like it is still a work in progress.

      Bronwyn Cron Hi! Just start typing the name of the page in the Add a page box of the module you want the page to move to, and in a few moments, the page name(s) will appear and you'll be able to add it to the that module.

      Alenka Prezelj Thanks.  I have done that, but it looks like they still appear in the original module as well.  I chose link rather than copy page, not sure if that matters...

      Bronwyn Cron You can remove them from the original module by clicking on X  in the top right corner.

    I moved my pages around, but the navigation (prev/next) seems to be the old ones? Getting confused here :D

      Bariah Ahmad Hi, can you share the link to the course so we can take a look?

      Alenka Prezelj Hi Alenka, For now I can't share the course.. I moved the pages to a newly created module/module set. Within the module is fine. But the first & last pages still go to the 'old' module/module set.

    How do I add a test to the course?

      Hunt Country Health Services Hi there! That depends on the purpose of the test. If it's just for practice, you can simply create it by using the Quiz widgets. However, if you would like to assess your students, you'd need to set up an assessment. Please visit this page, and if you have any further questions, let us know.

    I deleted a page after being reassured that it could be recovered. But now I am having trouble finding out how to recover the deleted page.

      Hi Long Li ! Thanks for getting in touch! Can you please let us know how you deleted the page? Is it via the page settings or from the Course Setup > Content or Appearance tab?
      Also, do you still have the page URL or title so we can check this from our end? Thanks in advance.

      Suriavarman Thank you! I deleted through: Page > Settings > Advanced. No I don't think I still have the URL.

      Suriavarman  Thank you Suria. I've sent you an email about this. We need this page to be available to students by Sunday.

      Long Li What happened was that I copied the page, and then tried to delete the duplicate, but the original got deleted as well.

    Where can I find guidelines on using multiple pages within a topic? One of our topics within one of the modules has a series of individual videos - should these all be placed in the one page or separate pages?  How do the pages flow from one to the next is it seamless or another "step" for the learner? Thanks

      Andrea Montgomerie-Williams Hi Andrea, I'm not sure I understand your query. What you mean by "topic"? In general, there can be multiple pages inside a module. You simply keep on adding them in Course setup > Content

       

      Within the course page, you can add as many widgets as you like - different types, or the same type - for example several videos, if you need to, you just keep adding them to the page.

       

      Does that help?

      As for the flow from page to page, there are Next buttons on the right bottom of each page.
