Customizing the Course Menu

The Course Menu is a highly customizable space for adding the critical tools and resources for your course.  A well-organized Course Menu can do a lot to help students stay on track!  When you web enhance your class, the Course Menu comes populated with examples of different Learn components:  "Course Dashboard" is a Module page, "Course Information" is an empty Content Area, and the last four are Web Links.

The course menu in your UNM Learn template course is highly customizable.
