At University of Copenhagen we recommend that teachers organize the course content by modules. Modules make it easier for both teachers and students to have an overview and follow the progress of a course.

With modules you can organize the content of your course by for exemple weeks or topics. You can add all types of content, e.g. pages, files and quizzes in any order you like. If you need to structure the content within a module you can add “text headers” and indentation. All items including text headers can be reorganized using the drag and drop dots to the left of every item.


From the course menu you have access to the different types of content. Modules are used to present the content by linking to the different types of content e.g. files, quizzes, pages and assignments. So for example a list of all assignments can be found under Assignments in the course menu, and these assignments can belong to one or more modules at the same time.

If you organize your modules in a linear way, you can create prerequisite activities that students must complete before they can gain access to the next module and continue in the course.

Remember to publish your modules and the content within them, when it is ready.
