Placeholders allow you to add temporary, searchable reminders within the content that you can revisit later. Students cannot see placeholders. You can denote content blocks within a page as placeholders, add notes to other authors, tag the placeholder block for future reference, and replace the block on the page with final content when the placeholder is no longer needed.


Adding a Placeholder

On the course blueprint, click + Add Section, select Placeholder, and then click Add to Page.



A placeholder can contain text information only. You can tag it for later reference with user-defined tags, and you can later replace it with a new content section.
