If you have been granted permission to add content within the LMS, this article will walk you through the process. You can add content, edit tasks and assignments, and re-order the structure of the Path. Please note, you can only add content or make changes to the Path if you are a traditional on-ground faculty. If you are an online faculty, please do not make changes to the course as it could cause grading complications. Click the applicable heading below for steps. If you are unable to edit content in your class but believe you should have access to do so, please contact Faculty Training and Development at 602-639-7004 or at [email protected].
You may add unique content to your course through the Path. To begin, click on the Edit icon as pictured below.
The Path is customizable so that you can add items alongside topics, within topics, or inside of Study Materials or Tasks. If you would like to add an item alongside a topic, click on the plus icon within the Path header.
If you would like to add an item inside a specific Topic, Course Materials, or Instructor Material, click on the blue plus icon next to the respective area.
If you would like to add an item inside the Study Materials or Tasks, first click on the topic to expand it, then click on the blue plus icon next to Tasks or Study Materials.
While the Pre-Test, Post-Test, Assessments, and Resources are separate items, they have similar options. Once you add the item in the correct location on the Path, click on it again from within the Path.
Once you click on it, options will appear to the right. Choose an Assessment Type by clicking on the type you would like to add.
After choosing the Assessment Type, select Author New or Import From.
If you choose Import From, you will be able to pull from the Content Repository, Other Class, or Library.
Otherwise, you will need to create the content by filling out the form and uploading files, as needed.
You can edit content related to DQs, Assignments, and Quizzes until the task's start date. Once the assignment has started, you will not be able to make any edits.
To do so, first click the edit button in the upper right corner of the Path.
Then locate the task you would like to edit by opening the appropriate Topic and selecting Tasks.
You can then edit details about the task, such as the visibility, title, description, and assignment type.
By scrolling down, you will see additional options for updating the dates in which the assignment is due, and indicate whether you will allow for late submissions.
You can adjust display options, such as whether or not students can see their score.
Grading options can also be adjusted if necessary. Keep in mind that the total grade points in a course should not exceed 1000. Therefore, be careful with changing point values for individual assignments.
Once you are done making changes, click Save at the bottom.
You can also change the order content on the Path. To do so, first click the edit button in the upper right corner of the Path.
Then click the Reorder button at the top of the Path menu.
