D2L Module Builder

The D2L Module Builder is a tool that allows instructors to set the structure for a module, where they can then place content in a considered way, or add place-holders in advance of new content being available. Using the Module Builder is the best way to get a new module structured, and is a very useful tool for instructors reviewing their course structure. You can download an offline version of the guide below, view a video tutorial of the process below.

The benefits of using the module builder:
