Knowledge Base support case for Likno ELearning LMS, abstracted and stripped of all user’s private info.

Good Morning,

I have some questions.

1) What is difference between a course and lessons? Can I assume lessons are incorporated within courses? Does the admin or professor create the course and does the professor create the lessons? Can a lesson stand alone?

2) What is the difference between courses, lessons, and modules?

3) In course/lesson loading what does the admin do and what does the professor do.

4) You say: Other files can be uploaded in a lesson through the Files function. Please note that text from a word file can be copied/pasted in eFront through the unit's editor.
Otherwise, word or ppt files can be uploaded in the lesson's file manager and added as links inside the unit's content, or they can be shared with the students directly.

I?m having issues with this. Is there someone I can speak to. I don?t see the share button and also can I place the files within a category?

Best Regards,

Ron

Hello Ron,

Here are the answers to the questions of yours:

1) What is difference between a course and lessons? Can I assume lessons are incorporated within courses? Does the admin or professor create the course and does the professor create the lessons? Can a lesson stand alone?

A course is consisted of many lessons. A lesson can either be available directly (standalone) or exclusively through a course.
Both administrators and professors can add new lessons and courses, but only the professors can upload content in the lessons.

2)  What is the difference between courses, lessons, and modules?

Same as above. To which modules do you refer? Modules can be installed in eFront to extend the core functionality.

3) In course/lesson loading what does the admin do and what does the professor do.

The admin can create the course/lesson titles, the professor is responsible for adding content.

4) You say: Other files can be uploaded in a lesson through the Files function. Please note that text from a word file can be copied/pasted in eFront through the unit's editor.
Otherwise, word or ppt files can be uploaded in the lesson's file manager and added as links inside the unit's content, or they can be shared with the students directly.

Files may belong to a lesson only, they can not be associated with a category. You can see in the screenshot below the share button:
