New: completion checkmarks

Product news, LearningStone

Do you use LearningStone to support training or coaching? If so, you probably already work with LearningStone progress markers. These nifty little questions that are attached to training or coaching content, are collected in a progress reports along with the results of forms, surveys, quizzes and tests. Now we’ve added something even better: completion checkmarks.
All you have to do is turn this new function on and your trainees and coachees will have a much better sense of where they are and what still needs to be done. Check, check, check!


Completion checkmarks!

First add blocks, then progress markers

This is how it works: first you organize your material in a LearningStone course timeline which is a string of modules or blocks as we call them. Add a few sections and add blocks to each section. Then add a progress marker to one or more blocks. For example: if you had a video, you might add a short question (that’s the progress marker) “What was the main point of this video?”.
When a participant answers this question, it shows up in the progress report. So far, nothing new.

Show completion checkmarks 

Now, let’s say you have a couple of sections, each with a few blocks. Now turn on “Show checkmarks next to completed sections” in the Content in the course timeline editor and see what happens! 

Note the numbers in the illustration.

  1. A vertical line appears with checkmarks for completed sections.  “Completed” means that either the content has been seen (at least scrolled down to the bottom) and all progress markers and forms, tests and quizzes have been done. When it is partially complete, the circle turns light green.
    Try clicking on the little circle where the checkmark will appear and you’ll see what is needed to complete the section.
  2. The new table of contents shows the completion checkmarks as well.
  3. The redesigned horizontal bar shows the completed sections as well, if you choose to turn this on. And everything is clickable!

It’s all pretty much automatic though you might want to turn some parts off in the table of contents. For example if you have some decorative images, these don’t need to be shown in the table of contents.

How to turn completion checkmarks on

  1. Edit a course timeline and select "Table of contents".
  2. Activate "Show checkmarks next to completed sections "
  3. Save and have a look at the table of contents and scroll down to see the new line running along the course timeline.
    - Are there any blocks you would like to hide in the table of contents? Go back to table of contents in the editor and de-select those blocks.
    - Are there any empty lines in the table of contents? You probably need to fill in a title or a short title if you don't want to see it in the course timeline.
