Topics are components of modules and sub-modules. They can be links to course files, web pages, or tools in D2L.
Note: Topics can have start and end dates individually, but it is easier to set dates for the module which will apply for all included topics.
You can use the following types of files as topics:
|HTM, HTML, MHT, MHTML||Web Document|
|RTF, PPT, PPS, PDF, DOC, XLS, TXT, WPD||Text Document|
|JPG, JPEG, PNG, GIF||Image|
|SWF, MPG, MPEG, RM, MP3, AVI, WAV, RAM, ASF, MOV, RA||Media|
Note: For web documents, D2L strips the <title> tag and text within that tag from user created web documents.
You can use WMA and WMV files for topics, but they're not recommended, as users who access them through Firefox require a plug-in for them, and the plug-in does not guarantee the file plays for them. You can download the plug-in here: http://port25.technet.com/pages/windows-media-player-firefox-plugin-download.aspx
