A page in the CLE is essentially a web page that allows an editor to display various content and multimedia such as plain text, links, images, audio, video, embedded code, or a combination of all these.
Use a page if:
- content needs to be updated fairly often
- you want to present course information to your students on a single, scrollable page.
- Students may need to refer to the content frequently for reference e.g., timetable, schedule, tutorial groups, or reading list
- Open the CLE course page, and on the top right corner, turn Edit mode on.
- In the section where you would like the file to be added, click Add an activity or resource.
- In the window that appears, select the Page resource type. This will take you to the settings page for the new Page.
- Enter a Name and optionally add a Description for this page.
Use the buttons/menus in the text editor to add a bit of color and improve the appearance of a page. Some buttons/menus are available by clicking on the icons.
- Click Save and display to preview the page or click Save and return to course to return to the main course.
Below are settings that can be configured:
- Choose whether or not to display the page description and content when a user clicks on the page.
Common module settings
- If the availability is set to Show on the course page, the activity or resource is available to students (subject to any access restrictions which may be set).
- If the availability is set to Hide, the activity or resource is only available to users with permission to view hidden activities.
- If the course contains many activities or resources, the course page may be simplified by setting the availability to Make available but not shown on the course page. In this case, a link to the activity or resource must be provided from elsewhere, such as from a page resource. The activity would still be listed in the gradebook and other reports.
- ID number: The ID number identifies the activity or resource for purposes such as grade calculation or custom report. Otherwise, the field may be left blank.
- The ‘restrict access’ setting enables teachers to restrict the availability of activities and resources according to certain conditions such as dates, grades obtained, group or activity completion. Learn more about specific restrictions here.
- Do not indicate activity completion: There is no option to mark the page as complete, manually or otherwise.
- Students can manually mark the activity as completed: Students can mark the page as complete without any requirements being met.
- Show activity as complete when conditions are met: If enabled, the conditions activities will only be considered as completed when conditions are met.
- Tags are used to connect content from various activities within courses. You can learn more about the tagging feature here.
