Managing Widgets

Widgets are sections of content you may add to your homepages to provide information and links to course and administrative activities and resources. There are two types of widgets: System Widgets and Custom Widgets. 

System Widgets

System widgets are available as part of BeachBoard and cannot be edited or deleted, but you can remove them from a homepage or move them to a different section of a homepage using the Homepage Management tool. Additionally, you can change the appearance of system widgets using the same properties as custom widgets (i.e., border style, title bar color and more).

Custom Widgets

Custom widgets are widgets that you create within your course. You can add any custom HTML code and create a wide range of widgets to expand the functionality and available content in your homepage.
