Configure collections

Tracked progress, generated attempts and card vs player layouts

Once you've created a collection you can customise the settings from the Configure page

Don't forget yo use preview or study mode to view the different configurations on your collections.

๐ŸŽญ Layouts

There are two layouts to choose from for collections: Card or Player.

๐Ÿƒ Card layout

Cards organise content and folders into a card view, you can customise the folder and content covers in the collection editor

โ–ถ๏ธ Player layout

The collection player is a more linear style of learning for users. Content is arranged into collapsed folders, and shown to users on the left hand side. Users can navigate items using the previous / next buttons.

๐Ÿ“ Track progress

When enabled users will be able to see the states of different items in a collection:

  • ๐Ÿ”ต Blue = New (item was added in since the last time you were viewing the collection)

  • ๐ŸŸข Green = Seen

  • โšช๏ธ Grey = Not seen

๐ŸŽฑ Generated attempts

When enabled you can select the tags and facets you want users to be able to filter through to generate their own quizzes. Collection generated attempts will pool all questions within a collection and give users the option to filter.

Custom restricted access labels

You can restrict access to collection items within a collection, these show as greyed out and 'Coming soon' on both card and player views by default. You can pick an alternative label like 'Locked' or 'Upgrade for more'.

Top tip: If you have a collection and you want to give a sample of it away for free you can set up 2 collections, a free one and an paid / full access one (use the cloning feature to speed this up). restrict the items you don't want users to have until they have full access. Then give access to the free collection to a custom student user group, and then give access to the group via your website or using user group share links (more here).

Then when you're users upgrade either manually or through an automation, remove them from the free collection group, thus removing their access to the free collection items, then give them access to the full access collection with the same items but unlocked.

From the students point of view they've just unlocked everything but behind the scenes they've moved to a new collection and user group.
