Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) Version 1.3 Part 3: All-Inclusive Edition

OASIS DITA Technical Committee

The lcInstruction describes the specifics of a learning activity.

You have two options for including instructive content in a learningContent topic.
  • When you want to include content directly in the body of the learningContent topic, use lcInstruction.
  • When you want to use content that already exists in other DITA topics, or when you want to take advantage of additional topic types, such as concept, task, or reference, you can include that content as additional nested topic content in the learningContent topic, immediately after the learningContentbody.
