If you have deleted the Home page link or a previous Module Page or need to create one from scratch, follow these instructions:
  1. In the menu on the left, click the button with the plus symbol inside of it (also known as the Add Menu Item button).

  2. Choose the Module Page option, name it and click Submit.

  3. Go to the Module Page and click the option for Create Module.

  6. Click Create Announcement in the top left.

  7. Add the details such as title, information and availability.
