LearningBay authoring

By on

By Mike Arroyo
LearningBay has an optional authoring module that allows you to add new content or modify the content that comes with it freely and easily. The authoring module provides many functions. Chief among them are the following:

  • Drag-and-drop content into a repository.
  • Reorganize course contents.
  • Assign screen names to pages without renaming files.
  • Create lists of exam questions.
  • Generate online exams.
  • Provide remedial content from missed exam questions.

With the authoring module, you can create content using any software tool you like and simply drop it into LearningBay. LearningBay allows authors of all skill levels to create content pages. Novice authors may use applications like Microsoft® Word, PaintBrush or Excel to quickly create text and graphics.

Assign quiz questions to pages.

When a course is complete, drag and drop the contents into the LearningBay Repository. Our compliancy with WebDAV (Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning) and OPML (Outline Protocol Markup Language) transforms your folders and page names into a dynamic navigation for the online class.

Screen names
With the authoring module, pages and folders may be reordered, renamed or hidden from the student without altering the original filenames. Screen names may be assigned to pages, providing clarity to the student participating in the online class.

Create exams
Assign as many questions as you like to each page of the course. When taking an exam, if the student chooses some incorrect answers, LearningBay tags the appropriate pages and generates a remedial course based on the missed questions.

The authoring module also includes an export function to extract the course contents from the repository. All pages and assets (such as images, video and audio) are placed on a local computer using the same folder layout as the original course. An XML file is also created to allow the course to be imported to a different LearningBay server. This means your courses are never locked inside a proprietary database.

The end result, such as this one for Efficient Engineering, is a set of pages containing custom content, including their personal text and graphics.
