Which Course Format should I use?

There's no one perfect answer to that question. Course layout and design is influenced by design requirements like usability, accessibility, audience expectations, as well as professional, industrial, or cultural conventions.

The two most common course formats for eLearning courses at VCC are:

  • variations on the Topics format (e.g. "Topics" or "Collapsed Topics", which allow collapsible or hidden sections).
  • the OneTopic format, which uses a tabbed interface to organize topics and sub-topics into hierarchies.
