You can add your syllabus using the HTML Editor beneath the title, and you can add a file attachment by dragging a file from your computer onto the upload target, or by clicking Add an attachment from the context menu. NOTE: you can only add one file attachment.
Note If you decide not to add anything to Syllabus, the link and page is hidden from student view.
You can use the following types of files as topics:
|HTM, HTML, MHT, MHTML||Web Document|
