Note: Before you create your OpenOlat course:

First think about what you want to achieve with the course.

What the course looks like depends on your didactic concept, the goals and the overall framework. Choose the optimal and most effective course elements and try to bundle things that belong together in a meaningful way to achieve optimal usability. When the structure is clear, prepare the learning content, additional files (HTML pages, PDF files, CPs, etc.) and everything you need for use in the learning platform.
