  1. Topic summary

    In a Moodle course, course contents are organised into sections. The first section is General section, which appears in all Moodle courses. It is then followed by 1 to 52 sections as defined in the course setting. Each section corresponds to a topic or a week, depending on the course format. Section summary is a short description about its section. It is placed just below the section name.
