More About the Content Collection

Before you add any content to the Content Collection, plan out how you’ll manage content. You can organize content in a way that best meets your individual needs and the needs of your courses.

Create and Edit Content

You can create files to contribute to the Content Collection or create folders to help keep things organized.
Remember that you can only create folders and files in areas of the Content Collection where you have permissions to do so.
