How do I set a Front Page in a course?


The Course Home Page is the first view your students will see when they enter your course. For the Course Home Page, you can customize a page from your course Pages and have it display as the Course Home Page.


If you want to change the Course Home Page to a custom page, you must first set the page as the Front Page. The Front Page is a designation that shows the LMS which page can be used for the Course Home Page. Use this page to show a welcome message, links, images, or other information for students.

Notes:

Before setting the Front Page, the page must be published.

You can edit the Front Page, set a different page as the Front Page, or remove the Front Page.

Before setting a Front page, the Pages link in Course Navigation will open to the Pages Index. However, once you have selected a Front Page, the Pages link will always open to the Front Page. To return to the Pages Index, click the View All Pages button.

The Pages Front Page can also be set to display recent course announcements.
