Adding Content

Create interactive and interesting content for your VU Collaborate space.

Creating Content Modules and Sub-modules

A module is a place where you can add content to your space. You can also create sub-modules to add more content that belongs to the same module but a different topic. Think about modules and sub-modules as if they were folders and subfolders that help you maintain your content in a structured and organised way.

A module must be created before you can add content. Create sub-modules (modules within existing modules) to establish a deeper hierarchy.


Step One: Access the Learning Space Area

Click Learning Space from the navbar menu to start adding modules to your space.
