Planning and Creating Your Course Structure

Use the Content tool to organize course content and activities so that information about course expectations, course syllabus, lecture notes, activities, and important dates display to your learners clearly. You can add release conditions and learning objectives to topics to ensure users navigate through course materials while fulfilling specific course requirements and learning expectations. Your course structure will be created using modules and you can add your course materials and activities into the modules. You can keep your course content and files organized in the Manage Files area of VIULearn.

Adding and Uploading Materials into Content

If you already have materials (like document files, online videos, links, etc.) you can upload or add them into the Content tool of VIULearn. VIULearn allows for the upload of most common file types. Once you have uploaded and added your content, learners can view, download, and print those files.
