After you have created a course, you can enhance your course using basic editing and formatting functionality. For basic formatting functionality, refer to Editing and Formatting: Basics. In addition, you can edit course content to include such options as inserting text, images, pages, Microsoft PowerPoint content, video, and Flash content. Edits should be performed on content stored on your local computer.
Courses are made up of a course root page, lesson folders, pages (standard or interaction), and optional branching or assessment sections. Standard content pages can contain conceptual information about the course topic, and interaction pages quiz the end user on course materials. Results of the optional branching or assessment sections can be tracked and analyzed using a Learning Management System (LMS).
Lessons are similar to a chapter in a textbook. You can use lessons to introduce content, and then use pages to deliver topic details to the end user. The following is an illustration of a typical course hierarchy within the Course Editor:
