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.

Access to information and electronic technology for persons with disabilities is an essential component of Texas State University's commitment for a barrier free learning environment.

Creating and Working With Lessons

You can have as many Lesson pages as needed in your site. Each Lesson can be customized to suit the needs of your course. Some use cases include:

  • Online courses in which content is often structured by unit or by the week of class.
  • Online training which needs to define sequences of material.
  • Online certification which needs to require certain items to be done, and sometimes to limit access until prerequisites are met.


The "Add Content +" button located at the top of Lessons will add a new item at the bottom of the page.
