Content & Settings
Learning Content is the educational material associated with a course. Learning Content can be items like SCORM courses, Videos, PDF files, HTML content, and more! Generally, learning content is added as part of building a course and is added in the process of adding a new course. Your Learning Content can also be accessed directly from Manage Learning Content under Content & Settings. To manage your content, click 'Add Content' at the top of the page or click 'Edit' next to an existing item. You will notice that under your list of existing Learning Content there is a link to Preview any content item.
Launch File/Browse: Content can be uploaded via FTP utilizing the credentials that were provided to you by your LearningCart representative. For large courses (250 mgs or greater) FTP is required for loading your course into LearningCart so that the system will not time out due to virus scanning. Once loaded via FTP, add a new content item then click 'Browse' and navigate to the location of the content you want to use. After you select the folder that contains your content, LearningCart will automatically detect the name of the course and the launch file it should utilize.
Learning Content Types
Content Builder: Interactive courses can be built out using our drag-n-drop web editor.
Event: If your course has a webinar, VILT, or ILT session, you will need to add an Event Content Type as a Course Content Item. Event details will be added at the Product level.
File Link: The File Link allows you to upload any files the learner may need throughout their course. When a PDF is uploaded as a File Link Content Type, the learner will be able to download and print from the PDF file.
File Upload: The File Upload module type allows you to provide instructions to the student for uploading of a file. The file can then be reviewed by an Instructor or Administrator.
PDF: When you upload a PDF with the PDF Content Type, the document will be presented to the learner in our PDF viewer. The viewer will bookmark the learners place for convenient return and will prohibit downloads and printing.
PowerPoint: Any PPT files needed for the course.
Quiz: Quizzes can be created directly in the LearningCart system and pull from a question pool for randomized questions, or have specific questions assigned in a certain order.
Video: Videos uploaded as a Video Content Type can disable fast-forwarding and specify completion point.
Vimeo: Link to videos hosted on your Vimeo account.
YouTube: Link to videos hosted on your YouTube account.
Completion by Content Type
Completion status varies by content type or whatever scoring thresholds you apply to the content settings.
SCORM Module: Completion is based on what has been configured in the SCORM module. Typical configurations we see are slide views or quiz scores. Our system records user completion based on what the SCORM content sends to us.
File Link: Completion is marked when a user clicks to open the link.
File Upload: Completion is marked when a user clicks to launch the file.
Form: Completion is based form submission.
HTML Content: Completion is marked when a user clicks to launch the file.
In Person Event: Completion is manually marked by the instructor or admin based on the criteria of the class (full or partial attendance, participation, etc.)
PDF: Completion is marked when a user clicks to launch the file.
PowerPoint: Completion is marked when a user clicks to launch the file.
Quiz: Completion is based on the score you define when creating the quiz.
Video: Completion can be marked when a user clicks to launch the video or when they have viewed the video to the end.
Resetting User Course Data for SCORM Modules
There are two ways to clear a learner’s CMI data (data stored by a SCORM module about the learner’s progress) from a SCORM module in LearningCart.
CMI Data Reset for Course Module
If you need to clear CMI data, you can do this at the individual content item level. Navigate to the content item, then click ‘Reset’ in the bottom left corner of the screen. You will be prompted by a confirmation box: ‘Are you sure you want to clear user CMI data for this course?’- click ‘yes’. Any learner who has access to this piece of learning content through a course in their learning portal will have their SCORM/CMI data cleared within the module. This will not change the status or score that is stored for the learner in LearningCart.
CMI Data Reset for the Individual Learner
To clear CMI data for the learner in a specific course module, navigate to the learner’s account in the admin of your LearningCart platform – Manage Users -> Customers. Click ‘Details’ next to the account you wish to edit. Click ‘Customer Transcript’ and then locate the course module you need and click ‘Edit’. A popup window will show that allows you to adjust the learner’s status, completion date/time, and score. For a SCORM content item, this window also gives you an option to View or Clear CMI Data. When you click Clear CMI Data, all CMI data stored within the SCORM module will be cleared. This will not change the status or score that is stored for the learner in LearningCart.
User File Upload
Once the module has been added when the learner clicks on the module the instructions will display along with an Upload button. The student may enter a title and comments and then click the Upload button to locate the file and add it. Once the file is selected, the student will click the Insert link to save.
If an instructor is assigned to that module/event, they will receive an email notification that the file has been uploaded.
The assigned Instructor or Administrator can view the uploaded file.
The Instructor will be able to add comments that will be available to the student:
The Admin can also view the uploaded student file via the Transcript tab for the Customer:
