Icons for navigating course content

Access the Content tool

Click the Content link on your course navigation bar.


As of 8.4 you can no longer right click on topics to open them in a new window or tab.

If a specific learning path has been defined for your course, some content areas may only be available once you complete prerequisite sections or assignments.

You can use WMA and WMV files for topics, but they're not recommended, as users who access them through Firefox require a plug-in for them, and the plug-in does not guarantee the file plays for them.  You can download the plug-in here: http://port25.technet.com/pages/windows-media-player-firefox-plugin-download.aspx
