Function documentationCourse Program

 

Multiple courses are bundled together to form a course program and are offered to the learner. The learner can book multiple courses without having to traverse to individual course pages. Based on the requirement, the learner can make a choice of courses, skip some courses, or even select alternative courses rather than the standard course offering.

Features

The following features are available on the Course Program screen:

  • The courses are bundled into individual units known as blocks. The following are the 2 types of blocks available for course program:

    Sequential

    • The learner can book a sequenced block only when all courses in the preceding sequenced block are booked.

    • The learner must book the sequential courses in the order in which they are displayed. The sequence number is indicated before the course name. For time- dependent course, the proper chronological order is also indicated.

    Nonsequential

    • The learner can book a nonsequenced block independent of courses in any other block.

    • The learner can book the nonsequential courses in any order.

    Note that the block can contain both Sequential as well as Nonsequential courses.

  • A Mandatory block indicates that the learner has to complete successfully the courses present in the block.

  • The learner can book an alternative course if the standard course offered does fulfill the learner’s requirement. If an alternative course is a sequential course, it is then subjected to appropriate sequential checks.

    Note that a curriculum cannot be set as an alternative course.

  • When the learner books a course for the first time through the course program, the learner automatically subscribes to the course program.

  • A workflow setup is not possible for the Course Program. However, the individual courses that are part of the Course Program can have workflows. In such cases, these workflows are implemented on booking or canceling a course.

    • Description
