To add content to an empty course, visit the course and then go to the course's dashboard (1).
Initially you shall see that there is not content to the course. To start adding new content you can use the shortcuts that appear in the course dashboard when a course is empty (2) that prompts you to drag and drop files into the content area directly, or take you to the Add unit option. Alternatively, you can use the Add content button (3) and select the type of content you want to add.
Clicking on the Add content button will open a dropdown menu with all available options (4) for adding a new content to the course. Those are
- Add unit - to add a new unit to the course
- Add test - to add a new test to the course
- Add survey - to add a new survey to the course
- Add assignment - to add a new project assignment to the course
More option or ways to add content to the course are the Clone unit option, where you can clone a unit to that course from another course.
To add extra material to the course, such as pdf files, video or audio files, presentations etc you can use the option Go to files. This will get you to a tabular list of all the files available to the course. You can either use the upload button to upload a new file or drag n drop files directly to the page.
Finally, you can add lessons to the new course. Lessons are an abstract collection of units (course content) that help you better organize and structure your course material. Visit the Go to lessons library option (from the dropdown menu that is available from the Add content button), as described in this article.
Initially you shall notice that there is already a lesson created (the same name as your course) and already assigned to your course. In case you want to create new lessons please follow the instructions provided in this article.
