Exactly. You never see a course that, say, covers
Russian Literature of XIX century and calculus at the same
time. Unless, that is, course topic is 'Advances of
Science and Art in XIX century'. Notice how that is phrase.
Specifically "topic" word there.
In other words - yes, topic is comprised from "subject", [optionally]
[optionally] "training problems", "explanations", and, finally, "test".
For all intents and purposes, course is just a topic, with extra
interfaces on top of it.
From Object-oriented point of view this is expressed as derivation
From relational database point of view - 1:1 relationship.
