Editing a Course Page

iTunes U uses Course pages to display public or non-public audio, video, and PDF content files instructors, staff, or students upload. Course pages can be organized into groups, displayed as tabs, to help manage content.

The following illustration shows a Course page design and layout.


iTunes U sample Course page template for Cupertino University, including course image guidelines, instructor or speaker name, Tools area, Links boxes, and tabs.

When editing a Course page, keep the following in mind:

To edit a Course page, click a course title or thumbnail image in a Public Feature or Welcome page, and then click Edit Page in the Tools area of the Course page you want to update. When you’re done editing the page, click End Editing.

Use the following table as a quick reference for editing objects in the Course page.
