Moodle: Topics format


The course is organised into topic sections that a teacher can give titles to. Each topic section consists of activities, resources and labels.

This is great to use if your course is objective based and each objective may take different amounts of time to complete. An example of this would be scaffolding where the students are building upon the knowledge from earlier topics.
