When should I create a course using Learning Pathways vs. put content in an Inkdoc?
- Inkdocs: Always-available reference material. If you want users to see all course material before, during, or after they’ve completed a course, you can create an Inkdoc to contain just that course material. You can choose to do this in any way you like. You can create one large Inkdoc that contains the content for many courses. Or, you can create an Inkdoc to contain content for only one course. If your courses are short, we don’t recommend having only one course in one Inkdoc because you may end up with a large number of courses and Inkdocs, which can be hard to find. In this case, we’d recommend combining multiple course reference materials into one Inkdoc.
- Learning Pathways: Guide users through Inkdocs. You can assign, track, and guide users through an Inkdoc in Habitat and control access, order, and assignments, using Learning Pathways.
Where does InkForm data go?
You can always see Inkform data in the Inkforms admin console view. You can set up other ways to do this in Inkforms, also.
How do I create quizzes and assessments?
For those that require tracking, we recommend using our assessment widget in an Inkdoc. This works for multiple choice, true and false, multiple answer, drag and drop, image hotspot, sequencing, and fill-in-the-blank (if you have a specific word or set of words someone must get exactly right).
The assessment widget doesn't support open-ended questions. In this case, your options are:
Rework the questions to use a supported question type.
Use text fields in Inkdocs using native Habitat fields that can be completed by the end user, and that only that user can see. You cannot track content in text boxes using the native Habitat functionality.
Turn the quiz or assessment into an Inkform that can be tracked.
If the questions do not require tracking, we recommend using native Habitat functionality. Your template should include field patterns and a checkbox list pattern (if not, let us know). You can use these patterns to create an interactive workbook-like experience. You can also use the untracked “Knowledge Check” widget to break up content.
You can also do this with Learning Pathways to guide users through an Inkdoc, with the assessment on the last page.
