Course formats dictate the look and feel of a given course page, they can alter the way elements are presented to a user and the way in which you can customise the visual appearance of the course. This guide will show you how to use the “Single Activity” course format.
Step 1 - Navigate
You can find the Course Format settings within the settings page of your course by going to:
*Course name* > Settings > Course format
Step 2 - Single Activity format
From within the Course Format settings area, you can select the required format by using the format drop-down menu. By default all courses are created using the Topics format, so this will need to be changed to the Single activity format option.
Once you’ve selected the Single activity format, a new drop-down box will appear below named “Type of activity”. As the single activity format only allows you to include one activity within the course, this is selected from here rather than manually adding the activity to the course afterwards.
In this example, we’re going to use the “SCORM package” activity type, as such we’ll need to apply the following settings:
After these settings have been saved and we return to the course, we’ll be taken straight into the activity setup area where we can add all of the required information for our chosen single activity.
