You must create a module before you can add topics. You can create sub-modules (modules within existing modules) to establish a deeper hierarchy.
If you want to keep your course content hidden while you are building it, set the status of your modules and/or topics as Draft.
Note If your course is SCORM 2004-compliant, any new modules you create are outside the sequencing and navigation built into the SCORM package.
Tip If you Create a File, you can choose to Browse for a Template. This enables you to work from an existing template and ensure consistency across topics. See Cobra Learning - Using HTML Document Templates for more information.
Note When you add a video in Content, you automatically create a new topic within the module.
Note Your uploaded video files will play in the mediaelement.js video player. A list of the video file types this player supports can be found here: http://mediaelementjs.com/.
You must add subtitles to uploaded videos by uploading an SRT or WebVTT file. NOTE: Federal law requires that video content be closed captioned. You can also attach more than one subtitle file to a video to accommodate more than one language. This can make your video accessible to a broader audience. Subtitles appear to students as closed captions within the video player and they can decide if they want to view the video with subtitles enabled, as well as which of the available languages they want to use. Subtitles are not automatically generated for videos, and they are not automatically translated into different languages. If you want to include subtitles for web videos hosted on another site, such as YouTube, you must follow the practices of that site.
Note You can only add subtitles to the videos that you upload.
An SRT file is a .srt extension file that contains a formatted plain text list of timecodes (HH:MM:SS,MIL) matched with subtitles. Each item on the list is numbered sequentially starting with 1. You can create your own SRT file with a plain text editor such as Notepad or TextEdit, and save the file with extension .srt. The following is a .srt file example:
