I see how modules allow you to set a date and time, so for this reason I seem to be forced to link notes to newly formed modules. However, I'm not allowed to cut and paste the text directly into the module (apparently). Does this mean to the thing to do is save each set of notes as a specific file just so they may be copied into a module?
note- The practical issue here is that if the lecture notes from the course are made visible at the beginning of the course no one will read. Or, if I must hit the publish button for each set of notes when I would like them to be visible that's a downgrade from blackboard with allowed me to set the dates and times notes would appear without a hassle.
