Front End Book menuOfLessons Types

One function of a front end book is to display the lessons for a selected course. This display is called a menu of lessons. You can customize the look of the menu of lessons for the training as long as the lesson elements meet one of the display types available (see also: Catalog - Front End Lesson Types).

 

Each lesson type has a corresponding sample front end book included in the installation.

 

The available lesson types and corresponding samples are as follows:
