How can I pin a folder and what does pinning it do?

You can pin a specific module in your Content Browser. This can be beneficial for bringing modules that are used frequently to the forefront in the Student Zone and the Control Panel.

First, locate a module in the Content Library that you would like to pin, and ensure you are in Edit mode.

In Edit Mode you'll see a button on the right of the centre pane consisting of three dots. Click the three dots icon, then click Pin to top. You can also right-click on the folder in the side bar to open the same menu.

You can only pin modules themselves, not the folders inside a module.
