This week we’ve added ‘Branching’ to Elucidat, allowing you to create ‘Non-linear’ projects.
With ‘Branching’, you can allow your learner to choose their own adventure.
‘Branching’ allows your user to explore projects and receive immediate and content rich feedback.
Maintain engagement with unpredictable assessments that are tailored to your learner’s ability.
To start using ‘Branching’:
Open any page in Elucidat.
Press the ‘Page settings’ tab.
In the pop-up window press the ‘Rules’ tab.
Now select a Rule from the ‘Only show this page if…’ menu.
In this example I will choose ‘Score’.
A new set of values will appear (This will vary depending on which Rule you choose).
In this case I will choose ‘Greater than’ and set the score slider to 50%.
With this rule set up, my learner will only be able to view this page if they have scored 50% up to this point in the project.
You can combine as many rules as you like by pressing ‘Add rule’.
This would be useful if you wanted to create a page that was only viewable if your learner had attained a ‘Score’ over 50% ‘AND’ had seen 50% of the course (set using the ‘Percentage completed’ dropdown.)
If you wanted to create a page that was only viewable if your learner had attained a ‘Score’ over 50% ‘OR’ if they had seen 50% of the course, you should press the blue ‘OR’ button.
Adding rule groups allows you to organise your rules and use both ‘AND’ and ‘OR’ statements simultaneously.
Note: that if you are using Question Pools in conjunction with Rules that Question Pools come before Rules.
Send score on this page
This week we’ve also added a new button to the ‘Scoring and Weighting’ tab that allows you to control at what stage your LMS receives your score. This is useful if you have a branched course with many different endings.
Note: The ‘Send score on this page’ button can be used on more than one page in your project..
…however it will only send on the first one it encounters, this means that you can use this feature with branched pages.
