Some text fields in Didacte allow you to use advanced formatting functions. "Markdown" can be used in certain sections of your platform, to enhance the visual experience.
Note: Do not use markdown in "text" type lessons. This type of lesson already has its own built-in formatting tools.
Here are the text fields that support markdown:
Additional information for a lesson
Description of a credit unit
Extra info to display on the certificate

Explanation to a question
Between brackets, enter the text you want to turn into a link. Right after (without a space), in parentheses, insert the full link of the address where you want users to be redirected.
As an example, to invite people to go to Didacte's website, it would look like this:
To avoid any errors, the best method is to copy and paste the entire address from your browser!
To use subtitles, use the "#" character followed by a space, in front of the text. The more subtitles levels you need, the more "#" you add.
Here are the characters you need to add to your words or sentences that require special formatting.
To add an image, insert the characters "! ", followed by the full URL of the image in parenthesis. The address of the image must be integral, with "http: //" or "https: //" at the beginning. Here is an example:
It's very important that the image used belongs to you or is copyright free. Be advised that these images need to be hosted outside of Didacte.
Point form list
To create bullet lists, just use a dash "-", then followed by a space before the text.
To add a second level, insert two spaces, a dash "-", then followed by another space before your text.
