Creating collections

Creating and managing collections
Collections are the way to deliver flexible learning to users. We recommend using collections for content that students can use at their own pace. Collections can be updated and users will see changes & new items added (unlike assignments).
Collections video walkthrough

🎨 Setting up a collection

Head over to the Collections page using the main menu and Create a collection to start making one. Provide a title, some details and and descriptions and save.
Collection set up
Now it's time to add items to your collection, using the Items option on the sub menu, the content types for collections are:
  • Quizzes
  • Notes
  • Documents
  • Videos
  • Audio files
  • Embed
Presentations need to be converted to pdfs and uploaded as documents, or you can use the embed option, see our guide on embedding presentations
content options for collections
Surveys, SCORM files, upload boxes and text entry are not supported in collections as these content types should be taken once & usually need to be reviewed. If you want to use these content types please consider using courses, see our doc below.

🗂 Organising

Use the Organise button to rearrange items. And add in folders to organise your collections, you can add covers and titles to these folders.
