Learning elements are the building blocks of the Learning Module. They represent a piece of learning content: either an article, a video or a quiz. Learning elements can be combined to form a learning path that employees can participate in.
Admins can also create “freely accessible” learning elements (videos or articles) that are not linked to a learning path. If the corresponding option is chosen, the targeted users (all employees or specific teams) will gain access to these elements via their library, even if they haven’t previously unlocked the element through a path.
Leapsome currently supports 3 types of learning elements:
Articles are the most canonical type of learning elements. An article can be a link to an external or internal webpage, a PDF document, a presentation, an infographic, etc.
Videos are very similar to articles but with some format optimisations. Videos natively support YouTube links (more supports can be added if needed), and any popular video format (.mp4, .mov, etc...).
You can add a task as a learning element and also tag users that the user should contact for this task or meeting.
Quizzes are an interactive type of learning element. They are composed of multiple-choice questions with only one correct answer.
Your list of learning elements
Admins can access a list of all stored learning elements in the Learning Module by clicking on the Learning Elements section. There, you'll find a list of learning elements that can be searched by name and filter by:
- Type: either article, video or quiz
- Creator: the user that created the element
- Path: filter for all elements that are used in a specific learning path
Create a learning element
You can simply create new learning elements by clicking on the "Create" button in top right corner of the screen. That will open a pop-up window where you first need to select the type of the element: Please note that once an element type has been selected it can no longer be changed. Depending on the type of element (static content, i.e. articles and videos, or dynamic content, i.e. quizzes), you will see two different interfaces:
1. Creating articles or videos:
Articles and videos are created via a similar form. After selecting either article or video from the previous step, you will have to fill the following form to create a learning element:
- Name: the name of the learning element. Names do not need to be unique, but it is recommend to make searching easier.
- Description (optional): a description of the learning element. The description will be displayed to the users.
- Link: a link to an article or a video OR a file: a file corresponding to the type of element.
- Article: image/*, .pdf, .doc, .docx, .docs, .ppt, .pptx, .odp
- Video: video/*
Please note: an element needs either a link or a file. The file size is currently limited to 5GB. The limit can be enhanced if needed. Please get in touch with email@example.com.
2. Creating quizzes:
Quizzes are composed of multiple-choice questions with one correct answer each. You will have to fill the following form to create a quiz:
- Name: name of the quiz
- Description (optional): description of the quiz
- Title: question the user's need to answer
- Description (optional): any hint for the question
- Answers: please check the box of the correct answer
Please note: the quiz only supports multiple-choice questions and exactly one correct answer per question.
Edit a learning element
You can edit the following aspects of learning elements at any time:
- Link or File
Editing a learning element will only affect users that have not yet completed that step in a path including that element. If a user has already completed that element, they will always see the version that was active when they completed it.
Please note: editing learning elements that are used in multiple learning paths will update the element in all the paths!
Delete a learning element
In the edit pop-up window, you can delete learning elements that are not attached to any learning paths.
