Course format

You can determine what the course will look like to users. For example: Let’s say that you have prepared a very large number of resources and activities for their students. Although these could be all lumped together in a single section, you might also choose to subdivide them into subsections to make it easier for the students.

Topics format

This is the default format on Pegaz, and it is the most widely used at the Jagiellonian University. It consists of one main part and any number of sections (chapters). You may freely set the number of sections to whatever number is appropriate. In this format, you can highlight any section as currently crucial, as one to which students should pay particular attention at a given time.

Weekly format

Instead of topics, you may decide that the material will be split over the course weeks. Pegaz will automatically indicate the coursework for the current week on the main course screen. This format may require you to make manual adjustments if there are unexpected changes to the calendar.

Visibility of hidden sections

During the course, you have the ability to hide some sections from students. You can use this when you want students to first master preliminary parts before moving on to more advanced ones, or when some sections are still under construction and you want to temporarily hide those unfinished sections. In the case of hidden sections, you can indicate to students how many hidden sections exist. Thanks to this, despite the fact that students will not have access to them, they will be able to get an idea of the total amount of material to be mastered (including that which is temporarily hidden).

Course layout

In both in topic and weekly formats, you can specify whether all topics/weeks will be displayed at all times as one long list, or whether only single topics or weeks will be displayed at a specific time.
