Course element breakdown
The course structure is as follows:
A page will contain articles, blocks, and components. Adding more than one page within a course will automatically create a menu. Clicking the edit icon will allow you to change the page title, description, and add a hero image among other things.
Articles sit within pages and are typically used to separate out blocks of content, such as an introduction or knowledge check. Clicking the edit icon will allow you to add an article title and body text along with background images.
Blocks sit within articles and allow you to add components to your page. You have the ability to add as many blocks to an article as you'd like.
Components are added within blocks. You can add up to 2 components per block. Should you need to add more components, simply add more blocks within the article. Components can sit full width or half width, two-thirds left or two-thirds right. They can also be aligned to the top, center, or bottom (when there are 2 components).
