Streamline your course Navigation to help keep students focused.

Course Navigation

Hiding or removing course menu items from students in the Course Navigation Bar can help streamline your course and keep students focused on specific content in your course that is linked through a Page or Module. Hiding the Files menu can also allow for Course Builders or Graduate Employees to access files that you want available to them but not to students.

First, select the course you wish to work in from the Dashboard.
