Homepages and Widgets

The homepage is the first page you see when you view ICON’s My Home page or enter a course. Homepages can point to ICON tools, such as News or Content, or an external URL. The typical default homepage is widget-based. Widgets are sections of content set in blue boxes that provide information and links to tools, courses, and personal settings.

Widgets are the building blocks of homepages. You can create, edit, delete, customize, and preview the widgets in ICON.  There are two types of widgets available for use on your homepages:

    • System Widgets
    • Custom Widgets
