Including Course Materials+ in ICON

What is Course Materials+?

Course Materials+ is an app on ICON that instructors use to list all of the materials for their course. The list can have a combination of resources that are provided by the Libraries as well as other items added by the instructor from other sources. Lists are divided in sections that can coincide with course themes, topics, weeks, etc.

Below you can read about some of the features of Course Materials+ that can help you manage and prioritize your course's materials list:
