Hello, I am just starting to try to use Opigno for a rather ambitious project but I am hitting some problems. I have had to move things around a bit whilst trying to get going. But I am now getting really confused with "Browse for questions to add" when trying to add a question. I cannout understand which questions or when a question becomes available in the "Browse for questions to add". It seems to be completely inconsistent, from question to question or lesson to lesson. I have not tried to look at any consistency between courses as I am only concerned with one course but many lessons. My use case is that I have audio's for about 60 lectures and about 1300 pages of lectures transcripts and I am aiming at about 20 to 30 questions for each lecture. However there are some slight inconsistencies between the audios and the transcripts which forces me to move questions around a bit. Any elucidation about the mechanics of questions being available under "Browse for questions to add" would be greatly appreciated and may help me setup the sequencing of my workflow to facilitate adjustments. Thank you
I'm a new user of Opigno myself. I've been experimenting with Opigno myselt to better understand how it works. I've also been experimenting with the questions. I think I understand a little about how the questions are set up. The admin can correct wherever I say that isn't correct here. Here is my understanding (right or wrong) about how the questions work.
How Questions Work
Whenever you create questions within the context of a lessons, those questions are attached to that particular lesson. From my experiments, it seems that, in addition, those questions also go into a common pool where they are available in any class in any course in any other lesson. (As you create more and more questions, that becomes a lot to search through.) As you have already discovered, to access previously created questions you search for them under "Browse for Question to Ask". No matter how many questions have previously been created, only a few of them show in the Browse window. Currently, the only way to find questions in this Browse window is to filter the questions by these four filters: Title, Question Type, Changed, & Username.
Given these limited filters, the best way to find a question is to find a word in the title. If you want a particular type of question, then you can also filter the questions by Question Type. You must search for either a single keyword or a single exact phrase as it is used in the title. I don't think that you can search for multiple keywords. (There are other ways to find your questions, but they won't work within the "Browse for Questions to Use" window.)
Making Questions Easier To Find
So, as Opigno currently works, one possibility to make questions easier to find is to use specific keywords in the Question title that relate to either the course/lesson topic or to the desired lessons, or course, or section or lecture. For instance (Assuming your lectures all have unique names), when you create the questions, use one or more keywords from the Lecture Title (or course, or lesson, etc.) in the Question Title. Other keywords in the title should include the specific lesson or topic content. So, it becomes important how you create the titles to your questions because your title contains the keywords to search by.
A note to the admins, please correct anything that I said that wasn't right.
Making Changes to Opigno
Now, the beauty of Opigno is that it is built upon Drupal. As you learn Opigno/Drupal (I"ve been using Drupal for about 8 or 9 years), you can change how things are set up. You can add fields, change the structure, change the way things are filtered etc. There are other "Drupal" ways to search for your questions. But more about these things at another time.
@Stephen: Thanks for your feedback that perfectly summarizes the situation.
As you mention, even if Opigno offers some nice default tools, one of its main strengths is to make it very easy to be customised and extended, to perfectly fit each user's own needs.
@MidGe: don't hesitate to post on this forum if you need some assistance to setup your training platform. Thanks to Drupal, Opigno is perfectly fitted to manage very large amount of data.
