Hiding Course Tools

Faculty have the option of managing Course Tools from either the Course Menu or the Control Panel. Course Tools provide faculty with a wide range of optional tools that make course management, student assessment, communication, and collaboration integral components of the classroom environment.

From the Course Menu, unused Tools can be hidden from view simply by pressing the Hide Link button. This helps to reduce the amount of Tools a student sees, and creates a cleaner, less cluttered Tool menu. To make the Tool visible, click Show link. By clicking on the Tool name, faculty can access the Tool’s settings and can create Tool links for their class.
