Exam mode

This mode determines whether a course is an Exam. Enabling the Exam mode is a strict mode that implies specific rules for playing courses and reporting:

Minimum pass score

The minimum pass score is the minimum required score to pass an exam.

Scores are calculated based on the correct-answers rate.

For example, if the exam includes four questions, and the Minimum pass score is set at 50%, the attendee has to answer a minimum of two correct answers to pass the exam.

This option is only available when exam mode is selected.

Maximum exam attempts

Maximum number of attempts an attendee has per exam. Attendees are able to reset their sessions once an exam is finished if they still have remaining attempts.

An attempt is counted each time an attendee finishes an exam. If for example this option is set to 3, and the attendee finishes the exam, it will be possible to retake the exam when relaunching the course. Thus two remaining attempts are left.

Force sequential navigation

This option allows deactivating skipping capsules. The attendee must go through all the capsules.

Hide questions results

This option allows hiding the questions' results and the expected answers.

This option might be useful for the Exam mode.

Show overall questions results

When set, an overall summary of the questions' results will be displayed at the end of the course.

Final screen custom message

Add a customized message that will be displayed on the final screen.

Duration estimation

It is an estimated duration of a course. When enabled, this duration estimation will be displayed on the course card in the Course catalog.

Assign

Assigned users or groups need to complete the course.

Course assignment involves: 

  • Assigned users or groups of users will receive assignment notifications
  • Users will find the assigned course in the Assigned tab of the Course catalog
  • A special Assigned tag will be added to the user session in the course metrics
  • The list of the assigned courses is displayed in the users' course dashboard

If a Due date is enabled :

  • assigned users and/or groups will have to complete the course before this date. If not completed, a reminder is sent once per day for the five days preceding the due date
  • If an assigned course is overdue, users are no longer able to view the course, unless a course administrator extends the assignment

Share

Select a user or a group of users to invite them to attend the course.

Manage Attachments

When deleting a capsule, the attachment is not removed from Smart Courses. Attachments can be managed in different ways.

The table has three columns:

  • Title: Attachment label stored in Confluence
  • Used in: List of capsules where the Attachment is used
  • Delete: Allows you to delete the attachment if it is not used in any capsule

When adding attachments to course capsules, if an existing attachment with the same name is uploaded, Smart Courses creates a copy and adds a unique suffix "-cvsXXXXXX" to the file's name to avoid overwriting used attachments in other capsules.

Contributors

A course admin can select users to grant them the right to edit the course (contributors).

Smart Courses distinguishes the course administrator from contributors. A course administrator is either the course creator, a space Admin, a Confluence admin, or a Smart Courses Admin.

Only course administrators can:

  • Assign contributors
  • Manage advanced settings related to Exam mode
  • Manage restrictions
  • Copy, move or delete a course.

Restrictions

This option allows defining course restrictions. By default, the course has the same accessibility rules as the space in which it was created. A course administrator can customize restriction rules.

 These restrictions are exclusive and not inclusive; only the mentioned groups and users will see the course in the catalog and attend it.

Copy

Copy a course to another space. The visibility rights of the target space will apply to the course copy.

Note that it is only possible to copy a course to another space if the editor has course creation rights.

Move [Only for SERVER]

Move a course to another space. The visibility rights of the target space will apply to the moved course.

 Note that it is only possible to move a course to another space if the editor has course creation rights.

Delete

Allows you to delete the course.

Please note that deleting a course is an irreversible action. All the data and attendees sessions related to the course will be deleted.
