How to decide an entry point for a course

Are there any recommendations (pedagogy) for selecting the entry point in a course. I'd like a .pdf, knowledge based article, url etc. on how to decide to set my course to open in the activity stream, a home page, modules area, assignments, or syllabus. For example, perhaps use the front page for the first week to welcome students, then after that, set your course to open in the modules area. Or, if your course is assignment heavy, consider using the option for assignment list. I'd like to be able to direct faculty to use the right entry point.

Thanks for any direction on helping me guide faculty to make the right decisions on what the student sees first when entering the course depending on how the course setup.
