Getting Started

To get started, take a look at the image below.
Example of a course using the web browser
Courses that use the web browser most often use Two Pane (Vertical) in the Interface Layout section of the Interface tab. Some courses that have the user develop a website best viewed full-sized can benefit from using a One Pane interface and instructing the user to open the preview in an external window.
