Change the homepage to a tool or content

By default, your course homepage is a widget-based page that you are able to edit. Typically there are announcements and calendar items on this page, in addition to some external tools. If you prefer your course to start with the Content tab or an external URL instead of on a course homepage, you are able to change your homepage settings to redirect to something else.
