Module Item Completion

A faculty member asked if I could explain the Module Item Completion "Hidden Gem" from the page of the same name. It's a really cool feature which I plan on using.

Here you go - Module Item Completion:

Let me know if you have questions.

Note:  This feature only works in a browser so it will not work in the Canvas App.

ADD TABBED NAVIGATION TO ANY PAGE

This hidden gem gives you yet another way to add tabbed navigation to any page, assignment, etc. - basically anywhere you have a rich content editor.  I like this one because you can insert the tabbed navigation literally any place you want it.

Creating LightBox Effects

Here is a class you can add that will give you a LightBox effect.  You have all seen this before.  It's where you click a picture and it gets bigger puts the focus on the image.

This is a super quick and easy one that allows you to add drop shadows to images.  I think it adds a nice touch when you compare it to an image without the drop shadow.

I love this one and it is one of my favorites.  This "Hidden Gem" turns an ordinary unordered list (with bullets) into large boxes with links.

Note:  The list items must be links and they need to be in a Content Block for this to work properly.

@aaron-garner Thank you so much for your videos!  Question about the tabbed navigation.  Is it possible to have the navigation tabs for each weekly module show up in the home page only (and not in the content pages within that module)?

Thanks again!  Sherrie

Here is a way you can add check boxes to make your pages interactive.
