Lesson Plans

This information applies only to the Original Course View. Your instructor and institution control which tools are available.

A lesson plan is a container for content similar to a folder. A lesson plan can contain the lesson profile, objectives, and content items you need to complete a lesson.

Your instructor can provide optional information about how your knowledge is measured and the needed materials. You may also be able to view the duration of the instruction and what you need to have mastered after the instruction.

Access a lesson plan

Typically, you access lesson plans in the list of content, but your instructor can also add them to learning modules and folders. If your instructor added a description, it appears after the lesson plan's title.

Select the lesson plan title to open it. The first section contains general information about the lesson. The next section contains the content items.

The content may appear in a list or organized in two columns. Your instructor chooses if icons appear with each piece of content.
