Limiting Your Course Menu

As an instructor, you may control what navigational links your students see in your course menu.  If there are items in the Course Navigation Menu that you are not going to use for this course, hide those items so student do not see them.  Note: You can always make them visible again.

Hidden items will be invisible to students but will appear as faded links in your (the Instructor’s) Course Navigation Menu.
