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 in 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 (cle.ucsf.edu), and go to the course that you would like to add the activities and resources.
- In the CLE course, click the Turn editing on button and then navigate to the course section where you would like the page to be added.
- Click Add an activity or resource in the Section/Topic where you want the Page to be.
- Choose Page from the list of Resources. The page editor will open.
- Give the Page 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. A number of the 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 the main course.
Below are assignment settings that can be configured:
- Page name (required)
This name displays as a link on your course page. Use something unique that clearly identifies this page from other course activities and resources. We also recommend keeping the name short.
- Description (optional)
Enter a summary of the page. You can also Display description on course page. Select this option to display the description underneath the page link on your course page. (This works best if the description is very concise).
- Add your page content here. You can use the features of the Text editor to add media, images, links, and more.
- Choose here whether or not to display the page description along with the page content when a user clicks on the page.
Common module settings
- If the availability is set to Show on 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 from students, 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 in 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 provides a way to identify 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, grade 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 have the option to 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. Learn more about the tagging feature here.
