How do I use the page order feature to re order and hide tools in CourseWorks?

Re Ordering Tools with Page Order

If you wish to change the order in which tools appear in the vertical navigation bar of your course site in CourseWorks follow steps outlined below:

1. Click open the "Site Settings" page and select the “page order” feature on the horizontal menu of the page.

2. Select and drag the rectangle tabs outlining the tools you wish to re order in your course navigation bar.

3. Once you have the tools in the order you want, be sure to click the “Save” button at the bottom of the page.

Note: if you choose to put a tool other than “Home” at the top of the list then students will see that tool immediately upon entering into your site. So, for example, if you want your students to focus on the Assignments section, you may choose to put that in the top spot so that it’s the first thing students see upon accessing your course site.

Hiding Site Tools with Page Order

You can also use the Page Order tool to hide certain tools from the students (e.g. Gradebook ) while you edit your course site by using steps below:

1. Click open the "Site Settings" page and select the “page order” feature on the horizontal menu of the page.

2. Click the yellow lightbulb icon next to the tool you wish to hide. Note that the lightbulb turns gray and that the link text to the tool also becomes blue-gray and is italicized (you may need to refresh the site in order to see the sidebar links change color). 

Note: Hidden tools will only be available to site members with access levels higher than “student”.

3. Once you have completed selection and hiding of tools in Page Order page, be sure to click the “Save” button at the bottom of the page to finalize it.
