Changing the Nav Bars

How do I change what my students can see on the navigation bars?


  1. Edit Course
  2. Navigation
  3. In the “Actions” area, click on the icon that appears to be two pieces of paper (copy). 
  4. Respond “yes” to creating a copy.
  5. Click on the copy, and modify the name to exactly match your course title. 
  6. Click on the “Links” tab, and add/remove tools using the “Add Links” in the appropriate areas. 
  7. Once you’ve renamed the NavBar, added/removed tools, then use the Change button at the top of the “Active Navbar” area to make the NavBar that you just modified the “active” one.
