Featured Media

Instructors can flag content in a course’s Media Gallery to be featured so that it will appear in the ‘Featured Media Gallery’ module on your course Home Page. Please note that the ‘Featured Media Gallery’ module is not by default added to your Home Page but there are instructions below on how to add it.
