A block is the fundamental unit that makes up a learning object. A block is what we call an individual page or screen. It is a chunk or page of content with a defined set of media elements and interactivity. Blocks are combined to making a learning object.
After choosing a block type, you can input your text and media. There are multiple block types that you can choose from that feature different combinations of text, media and questions.
What are block types?
Block types are sets of blocks with the same elements and functionality. For example, a block containing video would be categorised under the block type ‘Video’. You cannot change a block type once you have created it.
What are block layouts?
Block layouts refer to the specific arrangement of elements within a block. For example, a block under the block type ‘Multiple choice’ might have a block layout name of ‘Multiple choice image right’. You can switch between block layouts at any time, as long as it is the same type of block.
