Navigating through the Course Player is easy, once you understand the various sections.
The Course Player refers to the pages (or Lessons) you'll navigate through on a Course.
First , let's look at a Nugget, as this will have a very similar layout to that of Lessons.
A Nugget features the following elements:
The toolbar consists of 4 icons, each with their own purpose:
Flag - Users can click this to open a pop-up to flag the content as inappropriate.
Bookmark tag - Users can save the Nugget to revisit in their Saved section, on the homepage.
Speech bubble - clicking this opens the Discussions section, from the right of the screen.
Thumbs-up - this allows the assigned Users to give the content a "like". The number of likes will be shown here.
Edit (pencil) - visible only to the Author or Collaborator, allowing them to edit the Nugget (takes them to Nugget's editor).
Channels - this will display which Channel(s) the Nugget is assigned to.
Show Discussion - this opens the same Discussion section, as the speech bubble icon.
When on a Course landing page, you'll be greeted by the following elements:
Thumbs-up - this allows you as the learner, to like the content.
Speech bubble - this let's you know that Discussions are included.
Bookmark tag - here you can save the Course for later viewing.
The Course sections and titles of any Lessons and Assessment - these are clickable, so you can jump back into your recent learning.
The Deadline (if applicable).
The Name of the content's Author, and when they published the Course. The Verifier, and when the content was last verified.
You can also see all the Channels this content has been assigned to.
Click Start Course/Continue or any of the Lessons listed, to jump to them. Once inside the Content Player, you will see...
The navigation bar on the left, to track your whereabouts within the Course.
The main page, showcasing the content (similar icons as featured in a Nugget)
Previous and Next navigation buttons.
Have a look at an immersive video guide below:
With Assessments sitting inside Courses, their Content Player will be identical to a Course. One point to note, is the 'traffic light' system of Grey, Amber, Green and Red.
Each of these represent the different stages of the Assessment process, and are shown on the Web app, mobile app and Browser Extension.
On a Course's landing page, the Lesson or Assessment card, will always show a dotted grey circle, towards the right. This circle colour means it has not been started yet.
Once you click on the card (or Start Course), the colour will change on the landing page, and within the Content Player. The colours include the following:
Within the Content Player, once a User has completed an Assessment that requires marking, an amber circle will appear on the navigation slide-out bar.
This means the Assessment has been completed, and is under review by the Author.
All circle colours will also display on the landing page, with a tooltip defining the status, when Users hover their cursor over it: Completed but not Marked.
The green circle is shown once a User has completed their Assessment, and it has been marked by the Author.
This shows the same on the navigation slide-out bar, as it does on the landing page: Completed and Passed.
Red exclamation mark
The red circle/exclamation mark icon is shown once a User has completed their Assessment, and it has been marked by the Author as failed.
This shows the same on the navigation slide-out bar, as it does on the landing page: Completed but Failed.
The same system will also be used on both the mobile app and Browser extension.
