Course Overview

All courses have the same basic layout, with a menu on the left and the content on the right. Moving around your course is easy and is done via the menu-links. They indicate the different content areas of the course, where lecturers can place information such as course content, lecture notes, reading materials, assignments, or other materials.



There is no mandatory lay-out, but Faculties usually have their own basic lay-out:

  • Lecturers may decide to add additional options and features to this basic layout. These is done via links. These extra links will appear below the standard menu-links.
