Modules are used to organize course content like folders on a computer or chapters within a book. Modules can be set by time frame (e.g., Week 1), by topic (e.g., Cellular Biology), or by course components (e.g., Final Project).
By default all modules are set to "Visible."
Sub-modules are optional and allow further organization of content.
Once a module is created, files can be added. View
