Course activation: Tasks

Tasks are some kind of exercises and therefore they are outside of the Avendoo® system. An event speaker can give participants for example a brainteaser. Therefore define in the Course activation wizard, which user type should define, if a task is done:

  • Only authors,
  • authors and team leaders or
  • authors, team leaders and participants.

Note: If you want that your participants only process the learning unit after doing the task, place on the learning path a task hurdle.

To create a task, you have to activate the option Tasks. Thus click on Course management → Course activation → Title of the course activation → Tab Options → Collaboration tools and set a check box before Tasks.

Overview of tasks

If you have activated the option Tasks, you can add a new task. Thus choose Course management → Course activation → Preview und choose then in the opening dialog window the tab Tasks.
