Add Learning Objects and Activities
As you build your learning path/course, you have the option to include existing learning objects or activities or to create your own using Chamilo.

Create a new document
This option allows you to generate a document which will be automatically added to the learning path and saved in .html format in the learning path documents.
In essence, it is possible to use the rich text editor to edit styles, add images, videos, etc. You can toggle between html and the WYSIWYG editor to produce whatever content you wish. In other words, Chamilo provides you with a complete learning path creation tool.
To begin, click the Rich media page / activity icon to see the following page:

Use existing resources
You can use any document you have previously imported or created in the documents tool of the course (e.g. a SCORM course, .html pages, videos, images, etc. - seeAuthoring content in Chamilo__).
You can also add tests, links, assignments and forums by dragging them across to the learning paths list on the left of the page using the green “handle” . The chosen resource will appears in the wherever you choose in the learning path. Use the handle to re-order items, and the pencil and cross icons to edit/delete elements.
Links, tests, assignments and forums can be created prior to building the learning path in the Authoring or Interaction sections on your course's homepage, and then added from these sections into your learning path via the relevant tab on the learning path page. (Alternatively, they can be created directly from within the tabs themselves as you build the learning path:)
