Which role do you need?
First create a template or click the Templates tab and click Edit at an existing template. Then go to the Settings tab.
Each template type has different settings. Some options below can only be seen with the course type Social or Game Based Learning.
Discussions on course overview
Learners can share information, ask questions and discuss in the course overview. In addition, they can also communicate with each other in the activities, provided you indicate this in the activity settings.
Discussions in activities
Allow learners to discuss with each other within the activities. You can then turn this off per activity.
Communication between learners
Give learners the opportunity to send each other private messages.
Note-taking for learners
You only see this option when the Notes feature is enabled in the settings of your environment. Allow learners to create notes while studying.
This changes the interfacte of the learning journey and it can give the learner the impression that the order in which they complete activities is not important.
Uncheck this option if you do not want to use the MemoTrainer. The progress bars that have to do with the MemoTrainer (such as knowledge intake) will then no longer be visible.
Learners will see an instructor and learner list on the right of their course overview. With user profiles they can click on a user to see the biography that learners can add via their account settings.
Hide new activities and blocks in the activity and results overview pages when they are not yet available
With this setting, activities and blocks that are still locked by conditions are hidden in the learning journey of the learners. Uncheck this option if you want to give the learners a preview of what the whole journey consists of. There is a lock for these activities.
Show activity suggestions for objectives
If you use an adaptive learning journey, learners can see suggestions for activities that are used to achieve an objective per learning objective in their objectives overview. They can then start that activity directly from this overview.
You only see this option if ReadSpeaker is enabled in your environment. When this is turned on, the text of the questions and content parts is read to the learners. This way learners with a visual impairment can follow the course well.
Once the template has been published, you can no longer adjust the 'screenreading service'.
Planning options for activities and blocks in calendar
Give learners the opportunity to make their own schedule for the completion of activities. The planning will be visible in their calendar
