How it looks in Snap

How it looks in another theme

Snap allows you to favorite a course by selecting the star icon in the course card. This functionality remains across themes, which means no matter where you mark a course as a favorite or which theme you use, the course consistently remains a favorite.

Other course formats

Your teacher can decide the layout of the course, such as by topic or by weekly agenda.

Course Format Description Image
Weekly Organizes course content in a weekly format with clear start and finish dates. A section exists for each week of a course, where a teacher adds content, forums, quizzes and more in the section for each particular week of a course. A weekly format helps make it clear about what you should address within a course at any time.

Topics Organizes course content into sections in sequential order. Each topic section consists of activities, resources, and labels. Teachers can give unique titles to each topic. Labels can be use to insert questions or important notes.

Collapsed View

Organizes course content in a way that allows topics (except Topic 0) to be toggled on and off. Submit a support ticket to have this course format enabled on your site.

Dock or undock a Block in a course

If your teacher does use a design other than Snap or Boost, you will be able to toggle the view of the navigation block. By docking blocks, you can consolidate space.

To dock a block:

  • Locate the block to be docked and click the Move this to the dock icon. The block moves to the margin. Point to the docked block to see the contents.

To undock a block:

  • Click Undock this block. The block moves back to the original position in the site margin.
