This is not how you should lay out a real course, we are organizing by Activity type here just to help you find examples of different features. Click on the name of a section below to display the contents. The settings have changed in this course to show one section per page in an effort to make it easier to navigate.
Here's information about our approach to course design. This process can be applied to either face-to-face or online courses.
Lesson activities can deliver content in interesting and flexible ways. It consists of a number of pages. Each page generally ends with a question and a number of possible answers, and leads to another page based on the student's choice.
Lessons are definitely advanced activities! A lesson is similar to a book with information provided in pages, but you can add quiz questions between pages to allow learners to check their understanding. If you really want to get fancy, you can create a lesson that has "branches"—the next page that is displayed depends on the response made by the learner.
Two things to know about navigating this lesson: 1) You can avoid the quiz questions by using the page titles in the table of contents on the right to move through the pages, and 2) If you do take the quiz and enter an incorrect answer, be aware that the questions will be displayed in a different order the next time they appear.
