For: StaffApplication: Design and Build , QMplus

The content in an area in QMplus is organised into areas called sections or topics. The most common way of organising these in a standard module is by week. If you have teacher or course administrator access to your QMplus area, you have complete control over how many of these content areas you have and what they are called.

This guide covers how to create more topic areas and how to get rid of the ones you don’t want.

Adding new sections or topics

  1. Turn editing on via the slider (top right of your screen)
  2. Scroll down to the bottom of the course page
  3. Click Add Sections, Add Topics or Add Weeks (popup box will open)
  4. Enter the number of sections you would like to create and click Save. (Note: We recommend that users should not add more than 5 sections at once.)
