Moodle 2.6 launched a new course format that expands what used to be possible only with the SCORM activity. Now with 2.6 you can make a single activity course out of any activity or resource in Modle, including examinations, assignments or even a wiki.
It’s a good way to create a shared space or a single purpose course (like a capstone examination).
