By default new/empty course shells start with the Home Page as the entry point. The Course Entry page can be updated by the instructor. The update will take place immediately for users entering the course.
Select Customization from the Control Panel and click on Teaching Style.
On the Select Course Entry Point screen, choose where you would like your course entry point to be with the drop-down menu. The options are in the same order as the Course Menu. Once you have made your selection, press Submit.
WARNING: Do not change the Course Entry Point to something only students have access to (such as My Grades)—as this could cause you to be locked out of the course!
