Create a Project

  • Updated

Projects are a structure for course creation. They allow you to form a squad, and organize the various steps until the courses are ready to be shared.

Administrators can create Projects.

Projects are linked to groups. Adding members to the Project automatically gives them the Author role on that group. Once a Project is created, you cannot change the group.

Create a Project

  1. On the bottom right, click +>Project
  2. Change the Title, Description and Group, or keep the default values
  3. If you wish to use a Project template, activate Create from a template on the bottom
  4. On the bottom right, click NEXT
  5. Select the users who will contribute to this project (this will grant them the Author role automatically for the whole duration of the Project)
  6. On the bottom right, click NEXT
  7. On the bottom right, click LAUNCH
  8. Write a message to announce the launch of the Project to the squad members, and click Send

The default group from step 2 is selected according to the following criteria:

  • the user creating the Project is a Coach or Administrator on that group;
  • the group has Learning Needs is activated, and the maximum number of Learning Needs is not reached.

If several groups correspond to those primary criteria, we apply the following secondary criteria (by order of priority):

  • the group is closest to the platform group, in terms of hierarchy;
  • the group has the largest number of members;
  • the group was created most recently.

  3. Enter the Title, the Description, and select a Group (default values are taken from the Learning Need)
