    Using OneTopic Format for Units/Topics

    What is OneTopic Format?

    OneTopic Format is an adaptation of the standard Topics format that presents course sections in tabs rather than scrolling down the course page.

    The default version of OneTopic displays the tabs along the top of the course page. Remote-Learner developers modified the appearance of this format to display the tabs vertically.  


    Check out the interactive example using the tabs.

    OneTopic format can be well used with the following types of courses:

    • Courses with many sections (tabs reduce the scrolling)
    • Tabs for each chapter of a textbook
    • Tabs for topical units, each topic including lessons, assignments, quizzes, etc.
