How to: Create pages in Lesson

Once you've added a Lesson activity (How to create a Lesson activity) to your module and set the appropriate settings for your lesson you need to create pages of content or questions. BUT before you go ahead with creating pages it's a good idea to work out how you're going to connect them, especially if you intend to have complex connections between branches. Planning ahead using a rough flow chart will help you in the long run otherwise it can get quite confusing.

Page types

There are five types of pages you can add to your Lesson, however most of them change how the lesson works. The main pages you'll be using are Content and Question, but below is a description of each of the available page types for your information:

Adding a page


Once you have added a lesson to your module you will be presented with a page as below.


Jump options 


Once you have saved your page you are taken back to the Edit tab page where you can add further pages. To add a new page click on any of the Add a new page... drop-down boxes to choose the page type. In the Edit tab you can also view the content of pages by either clicking on the page title or selecting Expanded rather than Collapsed in the bar beneath the tabs.
