Add a course

  1. In the left sidebar, click Dashboard
  2. In the left sidebar, click PROGRAM TEMPLATES
  3. Click on a program template
  4. On the bottom, click Course
  5. Select a course
  6. On the bottom right, click CONFIRM

Change the mode of a course (Learning, Training, Examination, Challenge)

The mode of a course determines if, and when, Learners see the correction to questions, and access the contextual forum. It also influences the conditions for receiving a Certificate.

  1. In the left sidebar, click Dashboard
  2. In the left sidebar, click PROGRAM TEMPLATES
  3. Click on a program template
  4. In the course block, select Learning, Training, Examination or Challenge

Learning mode

Correct answers are displayed after each question, and the contextual forum is available throughout the course.

This is the default mode.

Training mode

The Learner must reach the minimum score to see the correct answers and the forum (which can be accessed by clicking on the name of the activities on the left). If there is no minimum score, the correct answers and forum are accessible when the Learner finishes the last activity of the course.

The Learner can change their answers by clicking on the previous activities in the left sidebar, as long as the course isn’t finished.

Once the course is finished, the Learner can click on the activities to check the correct answers, and access the contextual forum.

We suggest using this mode in conjunction with a minimum score.

Examination mode

Learners have only one attempt to play the course. If they exit the course before the end, the course will be considered as finished; they will not be able to continue or edit their answers.

Correct answers and the forum are displayed when the Learner reaches the last activity of the course, regardless of their score (they can be accessed by clicking on the name of the activities on the left).

Learners can change their answers by clicking on the previous activities in the left sidebar, as long as the course isn’t finished.

Once the course is finished, Learners can click on the activities to check the correct answers, and access the contextual forum. Learners can continue the program even if they haven’t reached the minimum score.

Challenge mode

Learners have only one attempt to play the course.

Correct answers are displayed after each question, and the contextual forum is available throughout the course.

Add a minimum score to a course

If the course is in Learning or Training mode, Learners will have to start the course over from the start, until they reach the minimum score.

If the course is in Examination mode, Learners will not be able to start the course over (they will have to be assigned to a new session).

Minimum score isn’t available for the Challenge mode.

  1. In the left sidebar, click Dashboard
  2. In the left sidebar, click PROGRAM TEMPLATES
  3. Click on a program template
  4. In the course block, check Minimum score, then enter a value (by default: 70 %)

If the course contains no question activity (but the course has a minimum score), Learners will be able to continue the program at the end of the course.

If the course is a SCORM course, make sure it contains questions and sends a score element. Otherwise, Learners will be blocked at this step.

Add a time limit to a course

You can add a minimum or maximum duration for the course. This option is not available for SCORM courses.

  1. In the left sidebar, click Dashboard
  2. In the left sidebar, click PROGRAM TEMPLATES
  3. Click on a program template
  4. In the course block, check Time limit
  5. Select Min or Max, then entre the number of hours and minutes (by default: 5 minutes)

Add an availability date to a course

You can make a course available on a certain date, in a session.

You can change the availability date of a course if no Learner has finished it yet, and if no notification about the availability of the course was sent. Learners who started the course when the availability date is postponed instantly lose access to the course.

  1. In the left sidebar, click Dashboard
  2. In the left sidebar, click PROGRAM SESSIONS
  3. On the right of the name of a session, click Edit (pen icon)
  4. In the course block, check Availability
  5. In the dropdown menu on the right, choose a date and hour, then click OK

If Learners finished the previous blocks, they will receive a notification.

Further notes:

  • An email is sent for each course with an availability date. If you wish to make several courses available on the same day, we suggest adding an availability date on the first course only (to avoid spamming).
  • Learners see the list of all courses from the session homepage, even those that have an availability date in the future.
