Add Pages to Your Course

Why Do This

The Page resource allows you to create a document/webpage within your Cougar Courses that can be displayed and edited within the browser (no need for you or your students to download). The robust HTML text editor allows you to add many different kinds of content to the page including text, images, external links, PoodLL audio/video, and embed videos. You can use a Page to provide background information, instructions, a list of URLs, embedded videos, or to display multiple images.

Advantages:

  • Opens seamlessly - no need to launch third party software (e.g. Microsoft Word) which some users may not be able to access.
  • Can be accessed by mobile devices, e.g. smartphones (not all smartphones can handle word-processed documents)
  • Much easier and faster to edit.
  • Much more accessible and readily configurable for reading. 
  1. Log onto Cougar Courses and go to the topic/module in your course where you want to add the Page.
  2. At the bottom of the topic/module, click the "Create learning activity" link in the lower left.
