Converge courses are based on a collection of modules that break up course content into smaller units. These modules can be closed, highlighted, or isolated as needed.
Modules can be closed by clicking the arrow on the right side of the module header as shown below. Modules will remain closed even if the user leaves the course and returns. This can reduce distractions on the page, make the most relevant modules easier to find, and reduce the need for excessive scrolling. Please note that closing a module within the teacher’s course view, does not close the module for the students enrolled in the course. Teachers will want to model this option for students when introducing them to Converge.
Teacher highlights do appear in the course view of students, so teachers can use highlighting to help students identify what module they need to find. To highlight a module, simply click the settings icon on the module header and then choose Highlight as shown below. The module header will change color making it easier to find.
You can quickly go to an isolated, full screen view of a module by opening the Course Navigation Menu and then clicking Course Navigation. This will open a drop down menu that includes all the modules in the course. Click on the module you would like to view and then on the fullscreen icon on the right side of the title to open just that module in the main window. Please note that this will not change the view for the students enrolled in the course. Teachers will want to model this option for students when introducing them to Converge.
