Collapsed Topics is a 'course format' for Moodle. A course format alters the way a course looks and can be interacted with. Collapsed Topics applies the concept of 'toggled sections' to provide a compact list of sections to the user which can be open and closed as required.
This guide, written by its developer, covers every aspect of Collapsed Topics, including: installation, upgrade, uninstallation, course and global features, resetting, capabilities, language strings, overriding icons / styles in a theme and adding a new icon set for your installation of Moodle.
Are you an educator or site administrator using Moodle and want to get the most from the Collapsed Topics format? Then this guide is for you. It is aimed at novices with basic information technology skills, to intermediate programming ability and confidence in PHP and CSS when making changes.
All information contained relates to Collapsed Topics for Moodle 2.7, 2.8, 2.9 and 3.0. At the time of writing it is envisaged that the functionality will stay the same for Moodle 3.0 and beyond.
