๐Ÿ“‘  Note: With Voma, you can control the placement of your videos within your lesson content (it doesn't have to be at the top of the lesson), and you have the option to include more than one video in the lesson content, or none at all.

 


How to style text in your lessons

 

You can apply a variety of styling options to your text. (Including Bold, Italics, Underline, Strikethrough).

 

๐Ÿ“‘  Note: Hover over the styling options in your Lesson Content editor with your cursor to see the function of each icon.

 

To give structure to your lesson, itโ€™s important to use:

  • Paragraph Format - This gives you the option to use pre-set formatting for text in paragraphs, different-sized headings, and even code.
  • Align - Align text to the left, right, center, or justify. 
  • Lists - To create numbered or bulleted lists.
  • Indents - These control the distance from the left margin.
