The Lesson screen is shown when you click on a specific lesson shown under a course you own, or click the arrow icon (“take to lesson”) in the Lessons’ listing.
There is a row above that allows you to see all possible lesson options like tools allowing you to add more Content, manage Tests and Completion Conditions, upload Files, monitor Attendance and Progress, and configure several other lesson settings. Below you can see the lesson’s content as well as lesson information.
eFrontPro supports a number of different content types such as Text, URLs and Files. To add a new content unit, you click on the “Add Unit” button, and enter a name, the content’s source (e.g written on your own in the editor or taken from a URL), and content.
If you are uploading a file, the system will detect its type and present it in the best possible way. For example, images will display embedded, videos in a video player etc. SCORM 1.2 files will be directly imported and made ready for delivery.
You can also set a completion method, such as “button” (the lesson is considered “read” by the student after he clicks a button), “time” (the lesson is considered “read” by the student after some specific time has passed), or “automatic”.
The “Tests” sub-section shows you a listing of existing tests, and allows you to edit and delete them, or add new ones. To add a test you have to click on the “Add test” button and specify a name and an optional short description.
You can set a number of advanced settings for a test, such as:
The “Questions” tab lists all existing questions you can re-use on your tests, and allows you to define new ones. A test question can be one of the following types:
A newly added option for test questions is the “random” type enabling you to create randomized tests.
A “random question” entry represents a pool of questions.
You can add as many as you want to the pool, and you get to specify how many questions you want displayed when the “random question” entry is added to a test.
eFrontPro intelligently and auto-magically displays the questions, randomizing the choices as needed, and (with the exception of the Free Text / File Upload type) grades the answers.
A new test creation procedure is available, where questions are selected automatically based on predefined criteria. For example, the trainer may require that a test is created with 5 questions, that last 3 minutes, are low or medium difficulty and are selected between specific question types. The system will automatically calculate a set of questions that pertains to this rule.
Skill gap test is a special type of test that trainers can include to each lesson (only one per lesson) in order to check students knowledge before starting the lesson. The presence of a skill gap test into a lesson gives student the choice to decide if he wants to complete the lesson by seeing all units or he prefers to complete the skill gap test. If student successfully completes the skill-gap test, then the respective lesson will be marked as completed for him. Otherwise, he will have to go through the lesson's content to complete it.
The “Completion Conditions” sub-section allows you to set a number of conditions under which eFrontPro will consider the course as “completed” by a student. Those can be:
You are allowed to mix and match conditions, e.g include several conditions requiring different specific units, and even specify if all the conditions should be met (AND) or just some of them (OR).
The “Files” sub-section allows you to upload files such as Word, PowerPoint, PDF, audio and video items for the lesson’s content.
The “Attendance/Progress” sub-section shows attendance and progress statistics for the students taking the course, and allows you to set a student’s grade manually and see a report on his progress.
