Levio incorporates bite-sized principles into the lessons, which ideally, allow users to finish each lesson in five minutes or less. This learning format also helps users focus on one learning objective at a time. There are several lesson types available in this format: Read, Watch, Visual Narrative, Reflect, Quiz, and Exam. Read the list below to learn more about these lesson types.
Read is a bite-sized lesson consisting of stacks of cards containing the learning material. Preferably, a stack of image cards contains a single idea or topic similar to a paragraph. Users can navigate through the lesson by swiping the image card to the left and the right or clicking the arrow buttons below the card. There are several card types in this lesson: Cover, Image, Picture, Collapsible, and Transition.
A Cover card contains general information related to the lesson, including its author, title, and the topic of the lesson. When you create a Read lesson, it adds the card automatically.
An Image card consists of a text and an image, which you can upload from your device. We recommend you to use this card type when creating a Read lesson. Adding images can help improve user engagement and add context to the lesson.
Similar to Image cards, Picture cards consist of an image and a text. However, users can tap the image to enlarge and view it in full-screen. This card is particularly useful if you want to upload a chart, an image of a spreadsheet, and other images containing information that complement the text.
In a Collapsible card, you can write up to three points along with their descriptions. Add this card if you want to explain the definition of terms, or break down a segment of a lesson into several points. Clicking the "+” button will show and hide the description of the point.
When you add an Exercise card, a Transition card is automatically added to the lesson and is placed between a card and an Exercise card. It consists of a text and button that leads users to the Exercise and it serves as an invitation for users to start the Exercise.

Watch is a lesson delivered in a form of a video hosted on YouTube or Microsoft Stream. You can write the title and description of the video to inform users about the content. It's recommended to upload a video with a maximum length of 5 minutes to keep users engaged with the lesson.

3. Visual Narrative
Visual Narrative or VN is an interactive lesson delivered in the form of an illustrated story. As users navigating through the story, they'll receive dialog options that may affect how events in the story unfold.
Note: Visual Narrative is currently not available to create on CAT. We'll notify you when it's available. If you want to try the demo or request Visual Narrative lessons for your organization, please contact our consultant team.
In a Reflect lesson, users need to answer an open-ended question by writing their thought and argument. Create this lesson if you want to encourage them to contemplate, or improve their critical thinking skill.
A Quiz is a set of multiple-choice questions designed to test users' understanding, and it can be taken repeatedly. They will receive a score calculated based on the correct and wrong answers they get. They can also review their answers to find out which questions they answer correctly and incorrectly.
An Exam is a set of multiple-choice questions that must be completed in a given amount of time, and it can only be taken once. It’s designed as a pretest and post-test to evaluate users’ comprehension and measure their learning progress.
After answering all questions, users can review and change their answers before submitting the exam. They will receive a score calculated based on the questions that they answer correctly and incorrectly.
