Edit your landing page content
  1. In the Settings tab, add content to the Metadata fields where desired. Your system admin controls which of these fields are visible to students, so contact them with questions. (Some of the fields under Metadata ask for content that, if set up by your system admin, can be used to make the activity searchable in the Digital Library. Contact your system admin to find out if there are fields in your domain that can be used this way.)
  2. Save.
