It’s important to guide Users through Courses, helping them know exactly what needs to be done next. Course Assignments allow Admins to permission Courses directly to Users.
There is a sub-type of an Assignment that isn’t an actual assignment: the Course Recommendation.
Course Assignments don’t give permission or access to a course. Course Permissions are managed in the edit view of each course.
Create a Course Assignment
Go to Learning > Click Course Assignments > Click New
Choose a Title and select the Courses to be assigned.
Select if User Groups or Specific Users are assigned the respective Courses.
Select if the chosen Courses are Assigned or Recommended. When Assigned is chosen, give this Assignment a Start, End, and Due Date. Course Recommendations don’t have any associated dates.
Select if these Courses are FREE to users. Note that this only applies to “Assigned” Courses. “Recommended” Courses still require payment, as designated in the Course editor.
Select if this Assignment triggers any configured Notifications.
New notifications are sent every time the Save button is clicked. This ensures Users know the most up-to-date information.
Keep Send Notifications off while editing or testing a Course Assignment, and turn it on with the final Save action to ensure learners only receive one email.
Duplicate a Course Assignment
Duplicating Course Assignments makes it easy to create multiple assignments with similar content or structure.
Check the box of the Assignments to be copied > click Duplicate Assignments(s) > the new Assignment's title will be noted with a (copy).
