CCLE - Pages

A Page allows an instructor to include text and other media within a section of their course site by using the text editor. A Page can display text, images, sound, video, web links, and embedded code such as Google Maps. One of the main advantages of using the Page option rather than the File option is that Pages are more accessible (say, for example, on mobile devices) and are easier to update.

A Page may be used to present the terms and conditions of a course or a summary of the course syllabus, to embed several videos or sound files together with some explanatory text, or to detail a situation where accessibility is key. 

For large amounts of content, it is recommended that the Book option is used rather than a Page.

Use a Page if:

  • The document doesn't need to be printed

  • You need to update it fairly often

  • You do not need to impose strict control over the way it looks 

How to Create a Page

  1. Navigate to the section of your CCLE site in which you wish to add a Page. Click the Turn editing on button.

  2. Click the Add An Activity or Resource button.

  3. In the menu screen that appears, select “Page.” The “Adding a new Page” screen looks like this:

  4. Enter a name in the field.

  5. In the “Description” field, enter a concise description. If you want to display the description on the course page, click the corresponding checkbox.

  6. In the “Page content” field, enter the content of the page, including media as desired. 

  7. The remaining fields, “Appearance,” “Common module settings,” “Restrict access,” “Activity completion,” “Tags,” and “Competencies” allow the instructor to control who can access the page and at what time (among other functions). Adjust these as necessary. Note that the “Activity completion” field will only be available if completion tracking is enabled.
