How to Add Text & Media Blocks as Sections

The training maker lets you choose different styles and formats to create a course for employee onboarding, product training, and other LMS use cases.

 

Adding media and text section(s) to a course lets you convey the message in different formats to ensure a comprehensive understanding for the users.
