    external site or document on the web
   A great transitional tool for getting content into
    WebCT
Organizer Page
   An organizer page is essentially a webpage within
    a WebCT class.
   Instructors have the ability to create several
    organizer pages in a course and nest them within
    each other
   The main homepage in a WebCT Class is actually
    an organizer page.
Content Module

    topics which allow your instructor to create
    discussion groups around particular subjects.
    Topics can be public or private. Everyone in your
    course can access public topics, while private
    topics are available only to the set of students and
    teaching assistants that the instructor chooses.
Chat

    instructors to have real-time conversations with
    others in the course (synchronous).

individual assignments, grade them, and give
feedback to the students.
