You can choose to show course sections closed, or collapsed, on the course curriculum page for a specific course. By default, course sections will display open, or uncollapsed, on the course curriculum page.

When this setting is enabled, all course sections on the course curriculum page are closed, or collapsed, except on the section that the student is currently working. When a student starts a course, the first section will be open, or uncollapsed. Students can still expand or collapse sections manually as they review the curriculum for a course, regardless of whether this setting is enabled or not.

Tip: For courses that have many lessons and sections, enable the “Collapse Course Sections on Curriculum Page” setting to simplify and reduce the amount of content students initially see on the course curriculum page.
