EdApp learning management system “Content” template collection is perfect for transferring knowledge and introducing new content to your learners for the first time through an online course.

The Expandable List template is great for separating out larger points into smaller bits. As the learner taps on each section, it expands to reveal more information and exposes only one bit at a time. Learners can gain a better understanding of a bigger concept by approaching small chunks piece by piece. As the concept of microlearning has proven, this increases retention rates in the long run.
