Make existing content part of a course

Hi

We have various content on our website which we would like to include in some courses / modules of Opigno. But we don't want to duplicate the content.

Is it possible to link to this content as part of a module? If so, how can the student return to the course after watching / reading the content (e.g. return to module link on top of page)?

I would like to avoid solutions like open a new page or lightboxes.

Thank you

Best, Thomas

Hello Thomas.

Hello Thomas.

There are several ways to achieve this.

New course tool

One would be to register a new course "tool". A tool provides functionality and/or content for course members. For example, the "Lesson" tool provides a bridge between a course and quizzes. The "Videos" tool allows teachers to upload videos and link them to a course (instead of just "floating" around in the system).

This is done by creating a new module (which can be very simple) and implementing the hook_opigno_tool(). This module could then create a bridge between your content and the course in a way you control (although one very easy way would be to set your content types to be "group content types", and link them to a course - if you're unfamiliar with OG, let me know, and I'll explain in more details how to achieve this).

An example of such a simple bridge module would be Opigno Poll, which enables the Drupal poll module for Courses.

New lesson slide type

Another way could be to register your content as Lesson slides (aka Quiz questions). That way, you could include your content as theoretical slides inside a lesson (which is, in fact, no more than a Quiz). This could require some more code, as the Quiz API is not always as well documented and/or well thought through.
