The WBT is constructed as an Author-it book. The book can serve as an entire short course, or it can serve as a single module within a course. Because a book can contain sub-books, you can group multiple modules together in a single course. Because these modules also function as stand-alone books, you can reuse them accordingly in different training courses.
Books as modules and courses
Topics as slides and elements
The WBT course or module is a collection of slides. Each slide is a separate Author-it topic that exists at the top level of the book structure. The slides vary according to the slide purpose, the information they contain, and the way they operate (based on a purpose-built template).
We'll explore these slide types in subsequent modules.
An element is a topic added at a level beneath a slide. Elements are topics that contain content and functionality for the slide. For example, in an Accordion slide, each expandable tab is a topic that operates as an element of the slide. In the introductory module, you used an accordion slide with tabs to learn about the WBT interface.
