Start Here Page

This is an orientation page to help students get started and links to other areas in the course. This should not contain any content that students would refer to throughout the semester, such as the syllabus or due dates pages.
Modules Page

This page lists all the modules in the course. It should use a two-column layout to best use the space available and avoid scrolling.
