How the Course Outline works
Before we deep dive into course structuring, let’s recap a few important terms:
The timeline is the “wall” where you structure all your course material including blocks, topics, and pages.
A block is a group of topics and pages. A block can be a:
Scheduled (normally onsite or web-based classroom courses).
Unscheduled (normally self-study online courses).
Topics are groups of Pages within a Block and you can have several topics within the same block. Topics are optional.
Pages are where you add the course content. You simply drag-and-drop activity types to the page, for example videos, text, images, links, interactions, etc or a mixture of different activity types.
Content are course materials such as videos, documents, links, interactions and quizzes that are published in a page.
Create a course structure
To start adding content, please follow the steps below:
Create the first block.
– Click on any of the preselected blocks.
Select if you want to create a “Scheduled” (day/date) or “Unscheduled” (online) block.
If you want to create additional scheduled and unscheduled blocks click on “+ Add block” button located at the bottom left-hand side of the last block.
Create course topics (optional)
A topic is a divider that can be used to group pages.
Create new or add existing pages.
– Click on Add page>From library below the current activities to add an existing page from the page library.
A sidebar will open with a list of available pages from the library. You can also click on "Search library" and start typing. You will get a list of existing pages if what you type matches existing library pages.
Press ENTER to create your new activity. Click on “+ Add content” button to add content to the new activity.
