What is a Module?

Modules are collections of Courses, Resources, and Check-ins designed to help a learner achieve training or mastery on a specific topic or learning objective. Modules are useful if you have a set of courses that you plan to assign on a routine basis.

  • For example, let's say you create a set of 5 new hire training courses. Instead of assigning each course one by one to each new hire, save all 5 courses in a New Hire Module.

You can also use modules for across a variety of training use cases like role-based training or product knowledge.

Creating a Module

Here's how to create a Module

  1. Click the blue "+" button on the top navigation

  2. Click “Module"

  3. Click “Empty Module” to begin building the module

    1. You can also use AI-Assist to help you create a module outline. Learn more about how to use AI-Assist for content creation here

  4. Create your Courses, upload Resources, and add Check-ins to begin fleshing out your Module

  5. Drag and drop to rearrange the content in the order you want.

  6. Add sections to keep your Module organized

Module Sections

Once you have created a module, you can organize it in sections.

Sections are useful for dividing modules into topics (health and safety, professionalism and appearance, etc) or dividing it into days for new hire training

Here’s how to add and edit sections:

  1. Click “Add Section” underneath the title of the module.

  2. Type the name of the section

  3. Hover over the section break an click the dots to the left

  4. Drag the section break to where you want to divide the module

Module Completion Rules

For Modules that do not need to be completed in order, you can select the number of days in between each section before the next the section unlocks. This ensures that employees do not speed through the module and help you control the pace of learning.

Module Permissions

Admins and Managers, and any user with the "Create Content" permission can build and edit modules. Since Admins have access to all content in the Library, they can add any Course, Resource, or Check-in to their Module. Managers will only have access to the content they create or are given access to by their location.
