Now that you have created a module you will want to add topics to the module. Topics are links to content. For example, you can link to a discussion that you created in the Discusssions tool, a quiz that you created in the Quizzes tool, etc. You can also upload files as topics such as PDF's, word docs, and powerpoint docs. When you upload a file as a topic it puts the file in the Manage Files area and then creates a link to it in your module.
The diagram below shows two modules each containing six topics. These topics actually link to items in the course. So if you delete the topic from the module, only the link is gone, not the actual item itself.
To add a topic do the following:
- From your course homepage click Resources in the nav bar and choose Content. Make sure you are in the Manage Content area.
- Find the module you want to add a topic to under the Content Items. Click the drop arrow to the right of the module and you will see a list of options. The first option, New Module, can be use to nest a module inside of the current module. The four items below that are what we will use to add topics.
