Students can bookmark pages they would like to return to by clicking the bookmark icon. They return to these pages through the Bookmarks area.

Course Schedule

The Course Schedule is fed by the Brightspace Calendar and gives students a brief overview of course-specific due dates and events.

Table of Contents

The Table of Contents is where all of your course material will be listed by module. You can add and remove modules as you build and edit your course. We recommend putting important course information, including your Course Section Information (CSI) and course outline, in a module called Course Information and adding weekly content, assignments, and quizzes to separate modules titled Week 1, Week 2, Week 3 and so on. This will ensure simple and consistent navigation for students.
