The navigation policy of a course allows you to establish the order in which learners will have to complete the training material composing it.
As the Superadmin, you can sequence the training materials and lock them, to force learners to complete them according to the order you have configured.
Setting the Navigation Policy
In order to set the navigation policy of a course, access the Admin Menu from the gear icon in the top right corner of the page, then press the Course Management subitem in the E-Learning section. Once you’re on the Course Management page, find the course in the list for which you would like to manage the navigation policy.
Click on the course description and, once in the course area, move to the Properties tab, then to the Navigation vertical tab.
In the Navigation Policy section, select which policy you want to apply to your course, among the available options.
- Free Navigation. All training material is unlocked, and learners can play them in their preferred order.
- Sequential Navigation. Learners have to complete and pass the training material according to the order that you've established in the Training Materials page for the course. Learners must complete and pass an item in order to unlock the next one in the course.
- Completion of the first mandatory training material. Learners can access the training materials of the course only after they have completed and passed the first training material in the list. They will be then able to view the other training material in their preferred order.
- Final Training Material Locked. The course will be marked as completed when a learner passes the last training material of the course. If you choose this navigation policy, the last material will be locked, while the others will be unlocked and free to access in the preferred order of the learner. The final training material will remain locked until all previous materials have been completed and passed. Please note that while the option is intended to be used with a test training material, any final material will be considered the "test" and therefore locked.
Maximum Number of Attempts
In this section, enable the Set the maximum number of attempts to pass the training materials with a score in the course. The number of attempts refers to every single training material.
Once this limit has been reached, the learner will be locked out of the training material he or she did not pass. The training material will be marked as Not Passed and the course status will remain In Progress.
As the Superadmin, you can unlock the course for the learner by resetting the user’s progress in the course from the Course Report, so that he or she can retake the training material. The user’s progress reset is also required when updating the number of attempts from any number to zero (unlimited number of attempts). Find out more on the reset of the completion of training materials in courses.
Press Save Changes to confirm your choices.
Accessibility Hint: When configuring the number of views for training materials or the number of attempts for courses, keep in mind that some users may not be able to successfully complete a task on their first attempt. Reviewing content can be crucial for the effectiveness of the learning process. If such limitations are required, be aware that the effectiveness of the training might be affected based on the learner's abilities and usage conditions.
