Pages are where you can put content and educational resources that are part of your course but don’t necessarily belong in an assignment, or that you want to refer to in multiple assignments. This is a place where you can include text, video, and links to your files. You can even make links to other pages.
Pages can also be used as a collaboration tool where you can create class wikis and set specific user access for each page. Absalon keeps the entire history of the page so you can see how it changes over time (and who did what).
