Q & A Session
comment If the publish button does not show, does it mean the lesson is already published? Can one unpublish a lesson?
Yes, if the publish button doesn't show that means the lesson is already published. You can unpublish a lesson in the student work card as described here.
comment I have been publishing from 'lessons' rather than 'modules'. It has worked, but is it better to do the reverse?
Whether to publish content as individual lessons or grouped into a module is context specific. For example, if each lesson is a stand alone topic and no lessons have obvious themes, such as field of inquiry (cardiovascular) or time-based (week x of teaching period), it would make sense to publish those lessons individually. However, if lessons form logical groupings it would likely be better to group these lessons together within a module and to publish the module. An advantage of modules is that they reduce the number of items displayed to students in Lt, reducing the cognitive load of the student homepage.
comment How do we add a completion page to a lesson?
While authoring a lesson, select the ‘Pages’ option (next to ‘Panels’) and choose ‘Create completion page’. More details can be found here.
comment All the lessons I want to use say premium content for eval only
During the COVID-19 trial of Lt, all ADI content is freely accessible within Lt. If you see ADI content marked as premium, please reach out to your CSM or ADI support rep so we can unlock this content for you.
comment What are the options for assessing student work in the module? And do any of these integrate with popular LMSs, like Canvas?
Grading is available within Lt, for more details see here. The grades generated within Lt can be either exported as a csv file to upload into your Learning Management System, or there are integrations between Lt and Canvas, Moodle, and Blackboard. Please talk to your CSM if you wish to explore these options.
comment Is it possible to set the availability depending on passing a simple test or exam on the previous lesson?
At the moment Lt will only restrict access to a subsequent lesson in a module based on if the student has committed the prerequisite lesson. Availability of lessons within a module are set by an educator and are currently independent of whether a student has achieved a certain grade in a previous lesson.
