Many options are available:
7. As an example, let’s demonstrate the addition of a Content unit to our course:
Properties about to be described for this unit are very similar with the ones you will come across in the rest of the units that you will potentially add to a course. Some exceptions do exist, such as tests and surveys.

28. Hover over the content you’ve just added, you will be able to view different actions you can perform:
29. Let’s add a few more units/material. A typical course will probably include the following:
Sections are essentially there to part the material of the course. On the other hand, test units can be used as quizzes, whereas surveys can be used to gain feedback. As mentioned earlier, tests and surveys include more options and properties than the rest of the units. To keep this guide brief, further options will not be demonstrated here, but you can always contact our support if you find any difficulties along the way.
30. Click on the Test to view its available editing options:
You will find the different question types and options particularly useful.
