Courses are structured interactive learning experiences that you create using rich-text, multi-media, and customizable templates (widgets) for adding interactivity and assessment. Editing tools allow you to quickly author content and detailed settings allow for further customization of layout and design.

You can create a custom Theme that can be applied to any course to designate a default style for most elements. Themes control defaults such as font, text size, text color, background color, and navigation button style. Learn more about Themes.
At any time, toggle between PREVIEW and EDIT mode. In PREVIEW mode, select between desktop, tablet, or mobile views (horizontal or vertical orientation) to test out how your course will play on various formats.
If you are using the Progress Block or Required Course Structure then you can turn on "Simulate Progress" to preview exactly what a student will see as the encounter required content. (Or turn it off to preview your content with no progress blocks.)
