From your Home page, open a course that you have previously created or create a new course. Go to the Path tab, where you will begin to build a learning path for your students. 

Follow the prompt on this page to create a lesson. Give your lesson a title. You can also describe in a sentence or phrase what your lesson is about. You will add individual Steps to this Lesson to guide your students step-by-step through the content. 

Follow the new prompt that appears below your lesson title to add a step. You will select the action you want your students to perform and enter a name for this action. Select “Add Step” when finished. Each Step type will give you some different options for adding content, so you may want to experiment with the different Step types. You will be able to edit, reorder, and delete Lessons and Steps later on. 

A typical Lesson might include a Watch step with a video, a Read step with some written content, a Take step with a quiz or test, and a To-Do step with a discussion or other assignment. Each lesson must include at least one action step. 

You may also want to add some section dividers between Lessons. To add a divider, hover just above your Lesson and select the plus icon. Select “Add a divider.” Some examples of a divider might be “Module 1,” “Week One,” or “Romantic Poets.” Select “Create a divider” when finished. You will be able to edit, reorder, and delete these later on. 

Continue adding Lessons, Steps, and Dividers until you have finished mapping out your course, or begin adding content to the Steps as you go. To add content to a Step, select it. Any Steps without content will be flagged as "Needs content." You'll be required to add content to each step that you include.

You can easily drag-and-drop steps to reorder them within a lesson. You can also drag steps into a different lesson or drag entire lessons or topics to reorder them. Just hover over the step or lesson and click and hold the arrow icon to grab the piece you want to move. 

When you have finished adding content, click the "Publish" button to make your changes to visible to learners who are enrolled in the class. You'll see a red bubble appear by the Publish button any time you make changes that need to be published to learners.
