The <lcInstruction> describes the specifics of a learning activity.

You have two options for including instructive content in a <learningContent> topic.

  • When you want to include content directly in the body of the <learningContent> topic, use <lcInstruction>.
  • When you want to use content that already exists in other DITA topics, or when you want to take advantage of additional topic types, such as concept, task, or reference, you can include that content as additional nested topic content in the <learningContent> topic, immediately after the <learningContentbody>.
