What are Basic site templates?
There are two Basic site templates - one for collaboration sites and one for course sites. Both Basic collaboration and course site template are designed to provide basic features for communicating, sharing, organizing, and archiving documents, and conducting online discussions. The Basic course site template also includes features for conducting learning activities and grading.
Sites created from the Basic collaboration site template give all site participants access to:
- Announcements and Site Email for communications with site participants,
- Upload and share documents in Resources.
- Set up and conduct online discussions in the Discussions tool.
Site creators and any site participants in the Owner and Administrator roles also have access to the Template Help at the top of the left tools menu for information on setting up and using features in their site. Note: Template Help is is not visible to Members and Observers in the site.
