You can expand or collapse the course menu frame by moving your pointer near the border and clicking the arrow.

At the top of the course menu is a set of icons that can be used to change the display of the course menu. The menu can be displayed as text links or buttons, as a folder tree, or in a separate window.
List View: The List View icon contains text links that lead to course materials and tools.
Display in a New Window: The Display in a New Window icon opens the course menu in a separate window.
Refresh: The Refresh icon is used to view any new content added to the course menu.
Your instructor determines the default view of the course menu, so these options are not always available.
