The Left Menu is the main navigation method for a Course Resource module. The default structure appears as a result of the module template.  A consistent menu throughout the programme will improve usability and accessibility. However, module leaders should use the Left Menu to reflect the structure of their module activities and provide clear signpost for their students. The menu can contain links to specific tools or blank pages, where files, items and weblinks can be added.

Subheaders and Dividers

Use menu headings and divider lines to break your Left Menu up into logical sections.

For example:

  • Information: Announcements, staff contact details, University Support services
  • Module Content: lectures, tutorials, reading list.
  • Assessment & Feedback: assessment criteria, submission point, marking criteria.
  • Student Voice: Surveys, Programme Rep information, Open discussion forum.
