You can move content within a course:

  1. Re-organising order of topics or pages
  2. Navigation between sections

1. Re-organising order of topics or pages

You may decide that you need to reorganise the order of some of your resources or activities once they have been created.

Your resources and activities will appear on your course home page, with icons beside them depending on what type of resource or activity they might be.

  • To rearrange the order of this list you need to turn editing on.  The list will now have three vertical dots alongside each item, which is the expandable editing menu for that item. 
  • You need to click on the three dots for the item you want to move and a small menu will appear which includes Edit settings, Move, Hide, Duplicate, Assign roles and Delete options.
  • Click on the move option and some potential positions of where you could move that item will appear. Click on the position you want to move it to, and the item will move to that position.

2. Navigation between sections

If you used the Topics layout, each section you have created will be listed on the left menu and on the home page for your course the sections will appear as a list under the course content tab.

If you click on one of the topics, the navigation 'jump to' drop down box will appear which means that you can easily navigate to one of the other topics.  In addition, navigational links to the previous and next sections will appear on either side of this dropdown box.

If you have lots of pages in each section, there isn't a similar flow between individual pages or subpages as there is between sections and you will need to set up your own links once you're happy with the order of content.

Setting up the links between pages is described in 'Adding pages' under the heading 'links between pages'. The creators of Observing the Night Sky: What next? used their own image files for the 'back' and 'next' page button links, however text links work equally well.

The book module has arrows to the next and previous pages.
