  • Instructors can either use BYU Learning Suite content pages, link to another website, or decide not to include content pages.

    • Use BYU Learning Suite Content Pages
    • Link to Another Website
    • Choose not to use Content

    Once in the course, click on Content.

    To Use BYU Learning Suite Content Pages:
    Click on the Use BYU Learning Suite Content pages radio button. Click Save and Continue .View the default content page.

    Link to Another Website:
    Click on the Link to another website radio button. Type the website URL in the link text box. Click Link to connect the website to Learning Suite. Click Save and Continue. A link to the website will appear to students when they click on the Content tab.

    Choose not to use Content
    Click on the Do not include content pages radio button. Click Save and Continue. The Content tab will not appear for students in your course.

  • Step One:
    Under Content, click + Page located on the left side of the screen.

    Step Two:
    A dialog window will appear. Enter the title of the page in the Title text box. Use the Parent Page drop down menu to set what page will be the parent page. Select [Main] if you want to create a first level page that will be directly located on the left sidebar. If you want to create a sub-page, choose the appropriate parent page.
    Note: Parent pages can have two levels of sub-pages (i.e., “children” and “grandchildren”) to assist with organization.

    Step Three:
    A new content page is created. To add content to the page, click inside the text box and begin typing. A content page can contain multiple types of items. Content arranged either chronologically or by topic is especially intuitive and easy for students to use.
    For example, a single content page may contain files that need to be read for class, text (such as questions prompts), images, videos and powerpoints. By grouping these items together students will be able to access them quickly and reference between them.

    Step Four:
    Click on Preview to view how the content will appear when published.

    Step Five:
    To publish the content page, click the Published radio button. Students will not be able to view the content page unless it is published.

    Step Six (optional):
    Instructors can also choose to release content pages on a schedule. Click Scheduled, Publish On:.

    Step Seven (optional):
    Instructors can also choose Hide to hide content on a certain date and time. Click Hide On to set the schedule. This can be done in both Published and Scheduled, Publish On:.
    Note: All publish or hide date times are Mountain Daylight/Standard Time, regardless of the user's location.

    Step Eight:
    To save the content page, click Save.

    Notes:

    • By saving a content page, you are only saving your work. Students won’t be able to view the page until you publish the page.
    • Instructors can view the status of the page on the main Content Page.
    • If a page is scheduled to be published, clicking the Publish button before the set date will override the scheduling and publish the page immediately.
  • Nest Pages:


    Instructors can create numerous content pages to post their course materials. These pages may be layered using up to two levels of nested sub-pages, allowing content to be organize into sections. As multiple files and text can be included on each content page, nesting pages is a helpful tool that can be used to divide content into sections within a unit for clear student accessibility.
    Note: When students first enter the Content section of BYU Learning Suite, all the subpages will be collapsed, displaying only the main pages. Subpages become visible by clicking on their parent page.

    Step One:
    Under Content, click +Subpage located underneath the Content menu on the left hand side of the screen. A dialog window will appear.

    Step Two:
    Type a title for the page in the Title text box.

    Step Three:
    From the Parent page drop-down menu, select the content page which you would like the new page to appear under.
    Note: Third level content pages will not be displayed in this menu as other pages cannot be nested under them.

    Step Four:
    A new content page is created. To add content to the page, click inside the text box and begin typing. A content page can contain multiple types of items. Content arranged either chronologically or by topic is especially intuitive and easy for students to use.
    For example, a single content page may contain files that need to be read for class, text (such as questions prompts), images, videos and powerpoints. By grouping these items together students will be able to access them quickly and reference between them.

    Step Five:
    Click Preview to see how the content will appear when published.

    Step Six:
    To publish the content page, click the Published radio button. Students will not be able to view the content page unless it is published.

    Step Seven:
    The new page will now appear on the left side bar, under the parent page you selected.
    Note: Selecting Main as the parent page will make a content page a first level page. It would be displayed directly on the left sidebar as a main topic. These pages are the first to be seen as students enter the Content section.

    Step Eight:
    Pages can be reordered or nested from the left side menu by dragging and dropping the page titles. Select the title of the content page you wish to move. A crosshair mouse will appear. Click on and hold the mouse and then move it up or down.
