Moodle – Create a new Course format, based on Topics

Brief about course formats in Moodle

A course format is a special type of plugin in Moodle, which is responsible for the course layout – what the course page looks like (/course/view.php) in both view and editing mode, which resources and activities must be displayed, how they are styled and in which order they are arranged, in which sections they are located etc. The basic and most popular Moodle course format is the Topics format. It is the most simple and that’s why it’s best to use it as a skeleton for the creation of a new course format.
