Introduction to your Course Homepage Notifications and Modules: Faculty

Modules provide information to users based on their enrollment and role. Actions such as new content added to a course, or setting the date of an assignment to be submitted, will automatically populate these modules. Not all users see content in each module—for example, the instructor will never see anything in the To Do list.
