This is high-level description of what pages are available, how they interact, link to each other, etc, how they change depending on whether user is logged in or not, and depending on user's permissions for specific object.

Each page description contains three sections.

  • Heading
  • Side bar
  • Content

Heading description only contains things specific to that page. Separate section describes things common to all pages.

Contents

Misc notes

We do not strictly differentiate between kinds of users. I.E. Same user can be creator of one course, and student in another. Furthermore, student UI will be available to teacher of the course as well (except his actions as student will not reflect on his global scores nor will they be recorded in the database) for testing.

It is possible to create standalone objects (topics, problems, explantations, tests, etc.), that are not linked to any courses initally, but will be part of global repository instead.
