View and Review Content
When you access a course's Content tool for the first time, the first page you land on is the Overview, which instructors might use to post the course syllabus and introductory material. You can print and download a course syllabus directly from the Overview page. If your instructor has left the Overview blank you will not see it listed and you will land on the Table of Contents.
The Module Schedule page lists course material due dates, start dates, end dates, overdue course activities, and all events within the course from the Calendar tool for the next seven days. The number of overdue items in the course appears in red. Course events are also listed in the Calendar tool.Topics you bookmark appear in a list on the Bookmarks page. The number beside the Bookmarks link indicates how many bookmarks you have.
The Table of Contents panel lists all units available in your course. If numbers appear beside each Unit name in the Table of Contents panel it indicates that topics are being tracked for completion, and that you have a number of topics you have not accessed.
Print your course outline, or navigate to a module's landing page to print a module's outline.
