How do I use the Course Navigation Menu as an instructor?

The Course Navigation Menu is a series of links on the left side of your course that help you and your students access different course areas.

Depending on the structure of your course, you can choose to reorder and hide course navigation links.

View Course Navigation Menu

The active link is highlighted with different color text and a line indicator [1]. This highlight helps you quickly identify the feature area you are currently viewing in Astria LMS.

Links that are hidden to students are indicated by the Visibility icon [2]. A link may be hidden to students because the feature area has no content or because the link is disabled.

The Home page is part of Course Navigation and displays the Course Home Page.

By default, new courses show links leading to the index pages for the following fourteen areas:

  1. Announcements
  2. Assignments
  3. Discussions
  4. Grades
  5. People
  6. Pages
  7. Files
  8. Syllabus
  9. Outcomes
  10. Quizzes
  11. Modules
  12. Conferences
  13. Collaborations
  14. Settings  

To open a feature area in the Astria LMS, click the name of the Course Navigation link.
