How do I set up the Topics course format?

The Topics format is a course format that organises your course into topic sections that a course creator can rename. This format also allows the course creator to add a description for the section. Each section will track and make note of the types of resources and activities that have been added to that section.

How do I change the course format?

Once you are in your course homepage:

  1. From the course homepage, click on the cog wheel to access Settings (top right).
  2. Click Edit Settings.
  3. Click Expand all from the top right.
  4. Scroll down to find the Course Format section.
  5. Click the drop-down menu next to Format (first option) to reveal the available course formats and choose Topics format.
  6. Click the drop-down menu net to Course layout (third option) to reveal the options for customising the Topics format and choose Show one section per page.
  7. Scroll down and click Save and display.
