If you are not using heavy server side assessment, but mostly resources and client side activities (SCORM, H5P), this format may help provide more interactive courses by opening the activities in popup modals instead of separate web pages. When students finish an activity or resource, they return to the course page by closing the modal without waiting for the course page to load again.

This plugin uses javascript to add AJAX functionality to the standard topics format. Otherwise the format is the same as topics format. Currently Book, Choice, Custom certificate, File resource, Folder, H5P, Page, Poster, SCORM, and URL activities are supported and can be displayed in modals. Other activities will open normally.

Developers should be able to add similar functionality to other formats by copying the AMD call in format.php and adding this format as a dependency.

A demonstration course is available at https://openlearner.org/popups.
