2 – Adding Activities (documents, outlines, questions)

A course can contain 3 types of activities:

A - Documents

Documents in your training courses can come from 3 different sources:

  • From your computer: Images (gif, jpg, jpeg, png, ico, bmp), videos (3gp, avi, flv, m2ts, m4v, mkv, mov, mp4, mpeg, mpg, mts, vob, webm, wmv), PDF, Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Flash
  • From the Internet: YouTube, Dailymotion, Vimeo, Prezi, Slideshare, Google Docs, ThingLink, Genially, Adways, Tiki Toki and over 2,000 other embeddable formats;
  • From your platform: If your document is already being used in another program, you can easily find it and reuse it.

Let your creativity run wild and feel free to use your favorite tools to create original content!

There is no file size limit for your documents; they will be automatically converted when you upload them to the platform. Please do note that larger documents will take longer to load.
