Adding Tools to the Course Menu

Please Note: When a course is created in Blackboard, it will have four default menu items: Home Page; Announcements; Course Materials; and Study Skills. You can remove or rename these menu items as you see fit.

Links to tools can be added to the Course Menu. Consider the course content and the needs of the students and add the tools used frequently.
