Adding a Course Overview to the Content Tool

About the Course Overview

The Overview is the first item a student sees in the Content Tool.  Since it is the first item, CETL recommends that you place a short description of the course (perhaps the catalog description)and directions to proceed to the first module of the course, typically a Welcome module.
