Administrator Topic

Program - Create/Edit - Step 4 - Community

When creating a program, the Community step enables the administrator to associate the program with a community template. Administrators can either select an existing template or create a new template. This community template will be copied to the cohort when a cohort is created for the program.

A community template contains default content, including a banner, an HTML widget, topics, and postings. A community template is created in order to be used with a cohort learning object (LO), and when a cohort LO is created using a community template, a cohort community is created with all of the default content from the community template. This enables administrators to quickly create new cohort communities for each new cohort, allowing each cohort to have their own unique experience.

To create a program, go to Admin > Tools > Learning > Catalog Management > Programs and Cohorts. Then, click the Create New Program link.

Select Existing Community Template

In the Community Template field, click the Select icon to select a community template. This opens the Select Community Template pop-up, in which the administrator can search for and select the appropriate community template.

This community template will be copied to the cohort when a cohort is created for the program.

Create New Community Template

To create a new community template, click the Create New Community Template link. This opens the Create Community Template page in a new browser window. After creating the new community template, the administrator can close the new browser window and select the new community template. See Community Template - Create/Edit.

This community template will be copied to the cohort when a cohort is created for the program.

Remove Selected Community Template

If a community template has been selected, it can be removed by clicking the Remove icon . Then a different community template can be selected.

Next, Back, or Cancel
