The lessons tool allows you to structure content. By organizing course material by topics an instructor may create a sequence of pages and resources while allowing integration with other TRACS tools such as Forums, Assignments, and Assessments.


Creating Accessible Content in Lessons

Ensure the content you create is accessible by all users at Texas State University by reviewing our Creating Accessible Lessons Content web page.


Creating and Working With Lessons

  • Online certification, which needs to require certain items to be done, and sometimes to limit access until prerequisites are met.
