Your edX (Edge) structure should be organised in a way that makes it easy and logical for students to navigate.

  1. Each Section should be based on the Week or Module.
  2. In each Section is the Subsection, which is based on the Course lesson.
  3. In each Subsection are Units, which are the key concept of the lesson.
  4. The content in each Unit contains Components, such as Videos and Problems, that have specific course content.

It is important to note that the hierarchy of SectionSubsection and Unit do not contain any content at these levels and only content can be added to Units.
