Hi, I'm just starting out with Opigno and like what I see. I do have one question tough: Is it possible to add a "Layer" to a course? What do I mean with that: The default behaviour is this: Add a new course (for the sake of convenience let's only include "Lessons") Click "Lessons" Create a new lesson What I want is this: Add a new course (for the sake of convenience let's only include "Lessons") Click lessons Now instead of creating a lesson I would like to add "containers/categories". They should just be square boxes that that I can add with a WYSIWYG Template. If you still don't know what I mean it should look something like this: Box 1 Box 2 Box 3 Box 4 Box 5 Box 6 and so on... Clicking on a Box I get to the third part of the default behaviour, ie after clicking let's say "Box 1" I can now add 20 Lessons with quizes etc. Is something like that possible and if yes how would I go and do it?

"Are you familiar with Drupal
So I tried but failed to
Create what you want
Sounds like what you are asking for is called a "Learning Path", which I've seen in chamilo
I've seen a similar thing in Moodle called a "lesson", both of those are kind of like mini courses within a course.
I've tried both Chamilo and Moodle and both have some nice features. However, they features are locked in stone. You can't change any of their features. I love the fact that Opigno is based upon Drupal (which I've used for 8 or 9 years). With Drupal you can create almost any reasonable feature you want. Drupal has a wonderful feature called "Content Type" which, using various "fields" allows you to create almost any type of page that you want. For example I created a page for my son to write essays, with a separate text box for each stage of the essay. On the page there are 6 tabs (the label of each is underlined in red) and on each of the 6 tabs is kind of a page, each of which contains wysiwyg editors. He can step through the assignment by filling in each text box.
Maybe you could just create what you want. First you need to define exactly what it is that you want.
The reasson why we don't use a fully blown LMS like Moodle is because we also want to have a CMS and don't want to run two systems. Now the CMS is nothing fancy just a news page and some space (blocks) for sponsors/ads. I know that we can do what we want with Opigno but as I said this is my very first project with Drupal so even tough I have years of experience with Django and Django-CMS I'm a total noob when it comes to Drupal. From what I've seen so far Drupal ist very very very powerful and compared to Django(-CMS) "better". Some things in Drupal are totaly easy like installing a addon/modul copy a link and press enter that's it compared to django where you have to sync the db manual, edit the settings, add a url to the config etc... Others are probably also easy like changing the views, as wadmiraal said, but only if you know drupal like I know Django.
- I enroll in a course I would like to learn more about.
- I choose "Handlungsbereich 1" within that course.
- Within "Handlungsbereich 1" I choose "Lernbaustein 1" (Lernbaustein = Lesson).
- This "Lernbaustein" gives me all the information I need for the following questions ie Drag & Drop, MC etc.
