1.4.2 Editing the Contact Professor page and Turning the Home page into a Dashboard

First, in the yellow banner, on the right, click on "Exit Preview," then on "Continue" to return to the instructor view of the course. In the course’s banner, on the right, make sure that the Edit Mode switch is set to “On.” [BEEP]  Let’s start editing the Contact Professor link: click on it and fill out your profile on the Create Contact page.[BEEP]

Next, click on the home page link: the area is formatted as a Module page just like the Blackboard home page.  In the action bar, click on "Add Module" to see which modules you can display here. I want the home page to display only 3 modules: “My announcements,” “What’s new” and “To Do.” [BEEP] Use the hidden drag-and-drop icon to the left of the modules’ names to re-arrange them. If you really use the home page as a dashboard--and to avoid confusion with the Blackboard home page, rename it to “Dashboard”: to do so, use the hidden action button on the right of the link in the menu. [BEEP] Click on the green check-mark to confirm the new name. [BEEP]
