learningContent

Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) Version 1.2

A Learning Content topic provides the learning content itself, and enables direct use of content from DITA task, concept, and reference topics, as well as additional content of any topic type that supports specific objectives declared in the Learning Overview topic type.

A Learning Content topic comprises a set of self-contained content about a single terminal learning objective supported by zero or more enabling learning objectives.

A learning content topic should be rendered as single result component (e.g., a single HTML page) when it has subordinate topics, either as direct child elements or associated via a map. This result can be requested by specifying a value of "to-content" for the chunk attribute of topic refs that point to learningContent topics. This is the default value for the learningContentRef topicref type provided by the learning map domain.
