Introduction to the Learning Module Builder and learning modules

LMS365 Learning Modules allows you to include documents, videos, SCORM/AICC packages, and other content in courses and organize this content in a selection of learning modules that will divide the training into sequenced learning steps.

The modules will be a part of a course and will appear on the course home page where the learner can get an overview of learning modules in a course and access the learning content within them.

Adding content to learning modules

When you drag an item to the Learning Module Editor, it's removed from the list of documents. You can drag it back or select the Delete icon to return it. This will not delete the document from the library, but only remove it from the editor field. If you delete an embedded video from the Learning Module Editor, it will be removed and is not stored.

Use drag and drop to reorder the list of added items.
