swirl courses have the following structrue:
- Courses are directories that contain all of the files, folders, and lessons
associated with the course you are developing. The name of the course directory
is the name of the course. For example the name of the directory that
contains Team swril's R Programming course is named
- Lessons are directories that contain single units of instruction. The
name of a lesson directory is the name of that lesson. Every lesson must at
least contain a
lesson.yamlfile containing lesson content.
- Questions are written inside of the
lesson.yamlfile in each lesson directory. Students are prompted with questions in sequential order.
