Feature Focus: Components

A component is a part that allows your learners to interact with your course in different ways. Some examples of a component could be a multi-part Accordion that your learner needs to interact with to reveal information or a question that your learner is required to answer. 

You can add as many components as you like to your Project. Having a variety of different ways to interact with your course can make your content much more engaging for your learners.

There are four different types of components:



Presentational components are intended to convey information to the learner without much interaction on their part. These are useful for things like summaries, short explanations of concepts, instructions, and direct addresses to your learners.

Page heading 

This is a simple component which is made up of text and a feature image. This component is great for introducing your page and what it is about.

Call to action

A small component made of text and a navigation button which can be configured to navigate either somewhere within your Project or to an external destination. 

Text and image

A component made of text and an image, side-by-side. The component can be configured either to have the image on the left and text on the right or vice versa.


A component made up of text and a container where a video can be added. Videos can either be embedded, chosen from your Asset Library or uploaded directly.



Interactive components require your learners to interact directly with the content in order to reveal the information within, often in a sequence.

Encouraging your learners to engage directly with your course can help them retain the information you're trying to teach or separate concepts and steps in a logical, bitesize order.

Info panels

These are made up of static panels containing text and images. These don't need to be interacted with by your learners but they can be useful for presenting information in a sequence.


These are long banner-type parts which expand to reveal more information when selected. 


A Carousel presents information across multiple slides which can contain text and images.


Timelines are made up of multiple points on a vertical line. Each Timeline point can be selected to expand it and reveal the information within.


These are two-sided panels which can be flipped around to reveal more information. 



Grid format

This offers your learners a way to navigate to different areas of your course using a grid of one or more tiles. This is great for creating menu pages which are useful in non-linear courses.




You can add a Question component to your course if you'd like to quiz your learners.

A question component can hold more than one question. If there is more than one question in a single question component, they will be presented in a carousel.
