Add new content in the library

As mentioned in the previous section, you can add both interactive and static content in the library.

Add static content

  1. Click Content Library on the left pane after you log in as Author and click Add.

    Alternatively, you can click Create Content from the Getting Started page.

  2. In the Name field, specify a name for the content that you want to upload.

  3. In the Description field, enter the description for the content. Make sure that the description you want to enter is meaningful. The character limit is 400 characters.

  4. To add the content, Click Add Content File, and upload your resource file. When you add content for multiple languages, you cannot combine static and interactive content in a single group. Either all your content in all the locales should be static, or all the content should be interactive.

    Poznámka:

    If you want to replace the content, you can replace a static content with a different static content. The same applies to interactive content.

  5. In the Duration field, you can optionally enter the expected time a learner would spend in this module. The duration is in minutes.

    The learning time spent by the learner is calculated based on the duration specified if the learner has marked a course as complete. If learner consumes the content in the player, thenthe time spent in the player gets added to learning time spent. If the actual content time is less than the specified duration, nothing happens as the player always honors the content time for display.

     
  6. In the Content Tags field, enter the tags for the uploaded content so that your content becomes discoverable.

    Poznámka:

    An author can use these tags to search for the content while adding the content to the course.

Versioning

The content library also maintains versioning of your uploaded contents. If you make any change in the content, for example a PowerPoint presentation, and re-upload the PPT in the library, the version number gets incremented by one. This helps you to track changes in your content.

Add interactive content

  1. Click Content Library on the left pane after you log in as Author and click Add.

    Alternatively, you can click Create Content from the Getting Started page.

  2. In the Name field, specify a name for the content that you want to upload.

  3. In the Description field, enter the description for the content. Make sure that the description you want to enter is meaningful. The character limit is 245 characters.

  4. To add the content, Click Add Content File, and upload your resource file. When you add content for multiple languages, you cannot combine static and interactive content in a single group. Either all your content in all the locales should be static, or all the content should be interactive.

    Supported file types

    The interactive content can be a SCORM, AICC, or a Captivate published project. The file must be a zip file.

    You can also add HTML content generated from Captivate, Presenter, or Presenter Video Express. 

    Supported file types

     
  5. In the Duration field, you can optionally enter the expected time a learner would spend in this module. The duration is in minutes.

  6. In the Content Tags field, enter the tags for the uploaded content so that your content becomes discoverable.

Once you have uploaded the content, you can see a notification by clicking the Bell icon on top-right hand corner of the page. Each time you modify a content and re-upload it, you get a notification. If you make the changes, only you get the notification, not other authors.

 

Add content for different languages

  1. To add the content for different languages, click the Add New Language tab, and choose the required languages. Using this approach, you can add multi-lingual support for your content.

    Add new language
    Add new language
  2. Repeat the content upload process for the new languages.

  3. If you want to remove a language, click the Add New Language tab, and clear your selection.

    After you’ve made the changes, click Save. In the library, the new content now is available for consumption.

Set completion criteria

Static content

Interactive content

You can only set the Completion Criteria for the content for the following options:

  • On Launching content
  • Based on the Minimum percent required

You can set both Completion and Success criteria for the content for the following options:

  • On Launching content
  • Based on the Minimum percent required
  • Quiz passed or attempted options

NOTE: Only HTML content from Captivate, Presenter Video Express, or Presenter can be edited.

After you’ve added the content, you can modify the completion criteria for the content. 

In Prime, badges and skill are awarded based on Success  and Completion. If the learner has completed a course but is not successful, then the learner does not receive the badge and skill corresponding to the LO.

For example, if you had used Adobe Captivate to create your course and set the learning parameters on the Preferences dialog, the same settings get migrated to Captivate Prime in the Completion Criteria options.

In the Completion Criteria section, you can set the options mentioned below:

On Launching Content: If you enable this option, you define the completion criteria for the content when a learner opens the content.

Based on the Minimum percent required: Set a value as minimum percentage of consumption by your learner. For example, if you set the percentage as 50, your learner can consume 50% of the content and still meet the completion criteria.

Quiz: Choose one of the following criteria:

  • Quiz passed: The status is reported as Complete only if a learner passes the quiz.
  • Quiz attempted: The status is reported as Complete if learners attempt the quiz irrespective of whether they pass or fail the quiz.
  • Quiz passed or limit reached: The status is reported as Complete if learners pass the quiz or have taken all the attempts. For example, if the number of attempts set in the course is two, and:

            o   If learners take the first attempt and pass, then the status is reported as Complete and Passed.

            o   If learners take the first attempt and fail, then the status is reported as Incomplete and Failed as the attempt limit is still not reached.

            o   If learners retake the quiz and fail, the status is reported as Complete and Failed.

            o   If learners attempt the quiz again and pass, the status is reported as Complete and Passed.

Set success criteria

Similarly, you can define the success criteria for the course. A success criterion indicates a learner’s performance as Passed or Failed. If you had created a course in Captivate, you can set the success criteria for the course in the Preferences dialog, as shown below:

For example, you have uploaded a module that has a quiz in it. Now, you have set the Completion Criteria for that module to On Launching content and Success Criteria to Quiz Passed.

If the learner has launched the course and failed the quiz, then the course will be marked as Completed, however the Success Criteria is only be met when the learner passes the quiz.

Content filter options

Retire content

Once you publish a content, you cannot delete the content. You must retire the content first. When you mark a content as Retired, the content is no longer visible to learners. The content also moves to the Retired section. You can also move the content into the published state later.

To retire content, follow these steps:

  • In Content library, select the content you want to retire.
  • Select Action > Retire.

Poznámka:

Any content that is being used in any learning objects do not get affected. Learners can still continue to access the content.

Republish retired content

Once you retire a content, you can republish the content and make the content appear in the Published list. For example, if you have retired version 1 of a content and want to replace that with version 2, you can move version1.pptx, for example, to the Published list, and update the file with version2.pptx. The new file becomes available for consumption in various courses.

To republish the retired content,

  1. Navigate to the Retired tab and select the content that you want to republish.
  2. Select Action > Republish.

The content now appears in the Published list.

Delete content

After you have retired a content, you can delete it.

  • Navigate to the Retired tab and select the content you want to delete.
  • Select Action > Delete.

Note that existing courses that use the content, which are deleted from the content library, will continue to use the content.
