Custom Widgets

You can create your own widgets. Add a welcome widget to your homepage, for example. Introduce yourself with a “bio” widget, including your picture and brief summary of your experience in your field.


The homepages of most courses have a number of rectangular areas called widgets. Typically, there’s an News or Announcements widget, a Content Browser widget, and others. You can add, remove, and rearrange widgets. You can also create your own widgets.

Make Homepage Editable

Modify the homepage if you want different widgets or a different layout. Or replace the standard widgets page entirely, if you wish. For example, you can make a course tool, such as Contents, the first thing students see when they enter the course.
