Content Material

Material in the course is broken by instructors by module. Each module is displayed as a separate category under the Table of Contents. There are a variety of features in this section that allow users to monitor completion of material.

The first of these is the side bar that displays the number of remaining items in that module. If there are no remaining materials, a green check mark display instead of a number.

Each module also allows easy monitoring of completion through a system of check marks and dots. Dots indicate the the material is not completed yet. Check marks indicate completion of that item.

Another way to monitor completeness of a module is by referencing the progress bar at the top of the module.
