Activities
The Activities area is based on your textbook’s Table of Contents. Depending on the textbook in use, activities may be further organized into groups (vocabulary lists, pronunciation and grammar presentations, tutorials, video, maps, readings, games, textbook practice, and where available, workbook, lab manual, and video manual). The items in the presentations and tutorials group are not graded, so students can only get credit for submitting assignments from this group.


How do I get to the Activities areas within Content?

  1. Make sure you are in the course or section you want to manage. Use the Course/Section drop-down to view another course or section.
  2. Move your cursor to the Content tab and select Activities from the menu.
  3. Click on a lesson’s image in the carousel (runs horizontally across the top of the page).
  4. In the lesson menu on the left side of the page, click on a section name. The content will display in the table of contents on the right side of the page. Note: For lesson sections with subsections, you will have to click on the name of the subsection.
