  3. You can print and download multiple content topics by selecting the Print link.
  4. The general New Module function has been moved to the Add Content drop-down menu.

  6. Quicklinks can be added by selecting the Add Quicklink drop down menu. You can no longer link to CD-Rom File. Note that Calendar, Content, and Course File are not listed in the Add Quicklink drop-down, but they are listed when adding a Quicklink using the module/topic specific functions.
  7. Topic and module specific functions are no longer exposed as buttons. Instead, access these functions by selecting the drop-down arrow to the right of the topic or module. There is no new functionality here. The specific functions have just been hidden in menus to clean up the Manage Content page.
