    Shows what kind of learning activity it concerns. For example: LEARN means e-learning. You cannot change anything here.

  • Status

    You can set which phase of construction the learning activity is in. The status is intended for your own registration and overview, and does not affect how the learning activity operates.

    You can choose from 3 statuses for this learning activity:

    • Concept: the learning activity is still being created. Learning activities are given the status 'Concept' by default.

    • Published: published to the user.

    • Archived: archive the existing activity.

  • Language

    Choose the language of the learning activity. You can choose from languages that were made available in your online academy through basic settings. Users can filter by language when searching for learning activities in the Library.

  • Active

    Enabling the toggle allows you to enroll users in the learning activity.

  • Visible in Library

    Enabling the toggle makes the learning activity visible in the Library. This way, users are able to enroll themselves in the learning activity.

  • Recommend this learning activity

    If you enable the toggle, the text 'Recommended' will be shown in the learning activity's tile on the user's Dashboard. The tile will appear at the top of the Library, provided the learning activity has been made visible in the library. In this way, the learning activity is brought to the attention of users.

  • Limitless duration

    If you enable the toggle, the learning activity will remain available indefinitely to users who are enrolled.

    If you disable the toggle, you can set for how long the learning activity stays available to a user from the moment they enroll. When the set period is over, the user is automatically unenrolled and no longer has access to the learning activity. You can set the duration using the two input fields that appear:

    • Number: you can enter a number.

    • Interval: you can choose between days, weeks, or months.

  • User will receive a certificate after completion

    If you enable the toggle, users receive a certificate as soon as they complete the learning activity.
