Section Titles & Structures

We're trying to build a lengthy course in rise, that has Lesson>Topic structure, and are trying to use the Section Title structure.

Some frustrations:

  1. The Section Titles are smaller font than the Topic titles... this makes them a bit obscure.
  2. You can't enter content at the Lesson level - sometimes there is introductory material that we'd like to put at that level.  
  3. The other issue, is that when going through the course, you can't tell when the next Lesson begins.  There is no transition between the last topic of the first Lesson and the first topic of the second Lesson, for example.
  4. Topics are numbered continuously; e.g. under Lesson 1, you'd see Topics 1-4.  Then, under Lesson 2, the continue numbering Topic 5-9 instead of starting the numbering over for that lesson.  I'd like to be able to designate this renumbering option for each section.

+2 on all of that, especially point 3 which in my opinion means that sections are not able to be used at all. If I structured a course as follows:

Section - Football
Topic - Number of players
Topic - Rules and regulations
Topic - Governing bodies

Section -  Basketball
Topic - Number of players
Topic - Rules and regulations
Topic - Governing bodies

As a user, when completing this course I transitions from Number of players to rules and regulations to governing bodies to number of players ... etc without anything to indicate I've just moved from Football to Basketball.

As a result, as a workaround, I need to structure my course as follows which is very clumsy:

Topic - Football - Number of players
Topic - Football - Rules and regulations
Topic - Football - Governing bodies
Topic - Basketball - Number of players
Topic - Basketball - Rules and regulations
Topic - Basketball - Governing bodies

Any progress in this area to make sections more useful would be great!

Thanks!

Hey Louise,

Have you considered using the Sections?

It would look something like this:

Tip from my colleague Justin:

The key is to type your Section Title before typing Shift + Enter.  Here's a quick Peek at how I did it!

Perhaps that will work for you, but if not, feel free to share your feature request with our team here along with your use-case.

Hi Leslie

Thanks for you suggestion. This is the same as my first example, but the problem is that as a user, when completing this course I transitions from Number of players to rules and regulations to governing bodies to number of players ... etc without anything to indicate I've just moved from Football to Basketball. Therefore using sections (which is what I'd like to do) isn't possible.

Cheers

I very much like the Sections feature. I have a course with 13 chapters each numbered. 

One issue is that the default is to always show them expanded, with the lessons listed. One can "close" the chapter, by clicking on the triangle. But next time, they again show in the expanded form.

Is there some way to control the expanded vs closed form. For example, to stay as the user last set them at. 

Thank you. Daniel.

+1 for this request. The biggest problem is that if you use sections you have to have all topics in a section. Example:

Intro (Topic)

Section One

- Topic A

- Topic B

Section Two

- Topic A

- Topic B

Outro (topic)

In the above structure, the Outro topic will appear as if it is in Section Two in the TOC/menu, but it isn't.
