Weekly vs topic format

Your course site(s) can be organized in either weekly or topics format. The default format is weekly. Your course will automatically have a block, or section, for each week of the semester. Relevant readings, assignments, etc. can be placed together within each week's block.

The topics format allows you to organize your content around topics, with a block, or section, for each topic. 
To change from weekly format to topics format, or vice versa:
  1. Click on "Edit Settings" under the Gear Icon (to the right of the course title)
  2. Scroll down to and click on the "Course Format" section.  In the list of options that appears, find and click on the "Format" drop-down menu to select the course format that you'd like.
  3. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click "Save Changes"
