What is a "Page" in a Lesson Activity?

A page is like a Word Document. It is a document you create directly within Otus that has a rich text editor that allows for things like bulleted or numbered lists, bold and italics, font colors, and more. You can also embed pictures directly onto the page. Here's an example of a page:

Creating the Page

  • Step 1: After you've created the lesson, add an Activity and select Add Resource.

  • Step 2: Select the Page button.

  • Step 3: Give the page a name.

  • Step 4: Select Next.

  • Step 5: Build your page.

  • Step 7: Title the activity.

  • Step 8: Add instructions.

  • Step 9: Upload an image (optional). For best results, use an image with a ratio equivalent to 300 x 200.

Student View

When the student accesses this activity, the page will display automatically. The students will scroll to see the entire page.

Editing the Page

If you want to edit a page you created in a lesson, you can find it on your Bookshelf and edit it there. Editing it from the bookshelf will automatically update any lesson the page has been added to.

  • Step 1: Head to your Bookshelf.

  • Step 2: Select the page.

  • Step 3: Select Edit in the upper right-hand corner.

  • Step 4: Make desired edits to the page.

  • Step 5: Select Save in the upper right-hand corner.

If I clone the Page, will the link be in the cloned lesson?
