When a Moodle course is created, it is set up in a Topic format. By default, there are 17 topics shown in your course. These topics are where you'll be placing your content. To change the number of topics, please follow the steps at the following page: Adding or removing weeks/topics

However, there are more course formats than just topics. There is also WeeklyOneTopicCollapsed Weeks or Topics, and a few others.
