Article Last Updated June 2021

  1. Go to the main page of your course.
  2. Click on Turn editing on on the top right of the page.
  3. A move icon (multi-directional arrows) will appear on the left hand side of the course items. Single click on the move icon (note that clicking and holding will initiate the drag and drop process). 



  4. A dialog menu will pop up listing areas in the course where you can move the item. Click on the option where you wish to re-locate the course item.



  5. The course item will now be moved to the new location.

  

To move more than one item at a time, you will have to move the entire Topic section using the same method: 

  1. Go to the main page of your course.
  2. Click on Turn editing on on the top right of the page.
  3. A move icon will appear on the left hand side of the Topic name. Click on the move icon. 



  4. A menu will pop up. Click on the option where you wish to re-locate the course item. Note: the Topic section will be relocated underneath the other Topic section. 




Note: The topic names by default will be renamed according to the descending order (e.g. Topic 1, Topic 2... etc.). If you move Topic 2 above Topic 1, Topic 2 will become Topic 1 and Topic 2 will become Topic 1. However, if each topic section has a custom name, then the custom name will remain. Please take a look at this article to customize topic names.
