Custom widgets allow you to expand the functionality of available content in your homepages to suit your specific organizational and/or course needs. You can add custom HTML code to create a wide range of widgets. As an Instructor, you can create custom widgets for your courses, or use custom widgets shared from the organization level to your course offerings. You can customize the appearance using properties available only for custom widgets (i.e., widget padding, transparent backgrounds, and more).

- On the My Home or Course Home page, click Edit Course, then click Widgets.
- Click Create Widget.
- Enter a Name and Description for the widget.
- If you want to share your custom widget with other org units, click Add an Org Unit (only applicable at the organization level).
- Click Save and Close.
