Import a Content Template

Content Template — A collection of pre-authored content designed to help instructors and authors customize existing Content Packs or build new content from scratch in way that takes advantage of the key capabilities of Möbius.

The key Möbius capabilities that Content Templates promote are:

  • Sophisticated grading routines
  • Mathematical visualizations
  • Interactivity within content

Content Templates are stored as Course Modules that can be imported into your class.

Course Module — Defined package of content and supplementary content that can be redistributed to other Möbius users.

Three types of Content Templates have been developed to get your class up and running faster:

  • Question Templates — A Course Module of questions, each with a distinct grading routine.
  • Interactives — A Course Module with interactive content comprised of Math Apps and Geogebra applets.
  • Plotting Examples — A Course Module with commonly used types of plots.

Once you import a Content Template, you are free to modify it to fit your class.

You can import the entire Content Template Course Module, or select specific components to use in your class.

Content Templates are available to you in the Sources panel of the Content Repository if your organization is upgraded to Möbius 2020.1.

TIP: Don't see Content Templates in your Content Repository? Your organization's Möbius administrator can contact DigitalEd's Support Team (support@digitaled.com) to upgrade to 2020.1.
