Integrated courses are part of (and integrated in) the Managed Online Platform and each integrated course can contain one or several content types such as standalone courses, videos, text or downloadable content such as pdf files. By wrapping the different content types in an integrated course additional functions become possible. Think of creating conditions where a user is not allowed to start a lesson until a previous lesson is completed, storing progress on the completion of lessons, topics or exams, or providing certification upon passing or completing a course or lesson. Integrated courses are of a higher order than standalone courses.
Standalone content (courses, videos, audio etc) are wrapped in integrated courses which are wrapped (integrated) into a Managed Online Platform.
