How are Courses Organized?

Design - Courses in iLearnPro are laid out like a textbook for easy organization. They are comprised of Sections and each section can include both Lessons and Exams. When viewing a course in the course catalog, students can view the course outline to get a basic idea of the content of the course. This outline is built automatically from the titles of sections, lessons and exams. Also available from this view are course resources, which are additional documents you may want to include for course takers. They can be resources for your course content, assignments or other files!

Course Progress - As each student views course material, they gain the ability to look back at specific lessons from the course outline. However, students cannot jump ahead using the course outline without first reviewing the course information in the order that it is presented. Additionally, students must achieve a passing level on each exam to move forward through the course material.
