Homepages and Widgets

Pilot Homepages and Widgets

The homepage is the first page you see when you view the organization’s My Home page or enter a course. The typical default homepage is widget-based. Widgets are sections of content that provide information and links to tools, courses, and personal settings. Organization and course homepages can point to Pilot tools, such as News or Content, or an external URL.

Widgets are the building blocks of homepages. You can create, edit, delete, customize, and preview the widgets in your organization.

There are two types of widgets available for your homepages:

  • System Widgets
  • Custom Widgets
