Generic Style and Accordions
The text for the manual has now been completely changed with very brief steps in order for the user to follow up with the text very easily. A video is also available as an option in some manuals if the user wishes to instead follow a video.
The whole website has now been generalised into a similar style with the use of accordions (drop down menus). For example: In the page Importing and Exporting Course/Course Items you can see a quick description about the tool followed by the accordions where the user can select whatever (s)he wishes to use.
