Create a new (sub)chapter

Learn how to create a new chapter and subchapter

Updated over a week ago

Before creating theory items and exercise packages, you'll need to create a chapter and subchapter to link these items to.

Creating a new chapter

In the Author environment, choose the tab Chapter and click on the (new) button on the top left:

You now need to fill in some general options for your new chapter:

  • Author group: Choose an Author group (preferably the same as the Author group of the course if you have already created it).

  • Name: Choose a name that reflects the content and is distinguishable for you (this is also the name visible to the Student, but the Teacher can change it at the class level).

  • Status: Choose the status; when unpublished, the chapter will not yet be visible to Students, then remember to publish it when you are finished.

  • Display: Only change it from 'Linear' to 'With diagnostic test' if your chapter will have a diagnostic test. Learn about diagnostic tests here.

  • Default language: Choose a default language.

When you're ready, click on Next.

Creating a new subchapter

When you have just created a chapter, you can immediately create a subchapter from the edit Chapter page. Simply click on the Create subchapter button.

You can also start creating a new subchapter from the Author environment. On the tab Subchapter , click on the New button.

On the next screen, you will be asked to name your subchapter, and also to select the position of this subchapter. In other words, what chapter do you want this subchapter to be a part of? If you started to create this subchapter using the button on the edit Chapter page, the position will already be filled in.

Just like with a new chapter, you can also choose a status. If you choose to leave it unpublished, don't forget to publish it when you are ready.

When you are ready, click on Next.

Now you have a new empty Subchapter. You can fill it with packages, theory pages or slideshows. Find more helpful articles here:
