In the example below, Two Modules and three Sub-Modules are outlined in red. The number seen next to the Module's name indicates how many Unread files are left in this Module.  The check mark notes that the student has opened all documents in the Sub-Module. The instructor in this example course has organized the modules by topic; another common method of organization is by date.
