Allowing Students to Download Course Outlines
The Course Outline section, near the top of the Content tool, does not currently allow students to download or print PDF or DOC versions of course outlines. This is a known bug by D2L and we submitted a bug report for this issue several years ago. D2L will be fixing this issue in the September continuous delivery release and it will be available in CourseLink after September 28th, 2018.
To allow students to download course outlines before the fix, add the course outline file to a module in the Table of Contents. If the Course Outline link is not used, students will not see it when they load the Content page, so there should be no confusion.
To add the file to Table of Contents:
- Scroll to the bottom of the Content page and enter a module title in the Add a module text box. Something like “Outline” or “Course Outline.”
- Select the new module and click the Upload / Create > Upload Files button.
- Select the file from your computer.
