Sections

Sections allow you to break up your Course and organize similar materials in one place. Each Section serves as the mini overview for a specific part of your Course, and each section contains Lessons. For example, if you have a Course about baking desserts, you could have a Section called "Baking Cookies."

To create a new Section for a Course, go to the Course Overview and scroll down, then click on "Add a Section." A new Section will appear. Click on "Edit This Section" to edit the Section name and add content.

You can rename your Section to anything you'd like. You can also add images, videos, and files to your Section by clicking the + and selecting the icon that looks like the action you're trying to take. The first video or image in your Section will show up as the thumbnail for that Section.

You can also format text in your Overview by highlighting the text that you'd like to format. When you're ready, don't forget to hit the Save button in the top right corner. 

By default, your Section will be hidden, so members of your Course won't be able to see it. When you're ready to make it visible, toggle it from hidden to visible.
