2. Click the three line icon in the upper left to expand the course menu. Scroll down to the bottom of the menu and select Add a Block.

3. Select HTML.

4. Once your page has refreshed, scroll back down to the bottom right hand of your class. Select the wrench icon to edit the new HTML block.

5. Click Configure (new HTML block).
6. In the block title, type – “Exam Scheduling”.
7. Next, select the down arrow icon, then select the HTML editor icon (</>).

8.Once the html box opens, copy and paste with your keyboard (Ctrl+C to copy, and Ctrl+V to paste) the text below into the HTML Source Editor.

Start copy after this statement. 

<p style="text-align: center;"><img src="" alt="Exam Scheduling Icon" width="50" height="58" class="img-responsive atto_image_button_middle"><br></p><ul><li><b><a href="" target="_blank">Click here to schedule an on-campus, proctored exam with the LSUA Testing Center</a>.</b></li><li><b><a href=";sfvrsn=d1f74755_2" target="_blank">Click here to learn how to schedule an exam with ProctorU</a>.</b></li></ul><h4>Proctored Exam Fees</h4><ul><li><a href="" target="_blank"><b>Proctoring Fee information</b></a></li></ul><p></p><p><br></p>
