In VIDIZMO, a course is a compilation of different media types such as videos, documents, audio, quiz, images, survey, and polls through Media Management that are accumulated together in the form of a plan to aid in learning. Learners can also import external courses such as SCORM. The aim of conducting courses is to facilitate learning, generate awareness, dissipate knowledge, etc.
