Welcome Tab Content

When starting a course we recommend using this space to introduce yourself, include contact information and provide an introduction to the course by including key information like the location of the syllabus, required technologies, key deadlines, etc.
Once you have create the Welcome Content file you can enter text, graphics, photos, links or other elements using the “Insert Stuff” tab in the page editor. This works very much like Microsoft Word. If you wish, you can also use a template which are pages that are all ready to use and follow best practices for design and usability.
