Heading structure in online courses helps all users more easily navigate content in Totara, but it is especially important for assistive technology users.
It’s important to remember that the headings are not intended to be a way to quickly change the size of text. Headings are intended to communicate the flow of the content and be short headings for paragraph text. Using the appropriate heading will allow the learner to track your content easily and make their experience more enjoyable.
Six heading levels, H1 – H6, are used to define a structure of a document. H1 would be the largest or most prominent while H6 would be the lowest on the list. Totara automatically provides a logical heading structure for you inside the course starting at H3. Other site-wide features use the H1 and H2 headings for navigation markers.
