Managing settings in Competencies

Managing views in Competencies

The main Competencies interface has two different views:

The difference between the views is in access to additional features: access to view independent learning objectives and assessments, and a navigation pane that lists the competencies and objectives for the org unit hierarchically.

Switching views

  1. On the Competencies List page, click Settings.
  2. Select the view you want to use from the Personal Settings section.
  3. Click Save.

Setting which elements in a competency are visible

You can choose which types of elements (competencies, learning objectives, activities) are visible to course participants. For example, you might want to provide a simple list of activities to complete by displaying only activities.

Specify which elements are visible to users

  1. On the Competencies List page, click Settings.
  2. In the Org Unit Settings section, select the check boxes in Display to User for each type of element you want course participants to see.
  3. Click Save.

Note  Learning objectives are only visible if they are attached to a competency that course participants can see. You must attach learning objectives to competencies with the option, “Make competency and its children visible to users” selected.

Adding competencies to ePortfolios

You can allow users to add competencies to their ePortfolio as an artifact.

Allow users to add competencies to their ePortfolios

  1. On the Competencies List page, click Settings.
  2. In the Org Unit Settings section, select Allow users to add their competencies to their ePortfolio.
  3. Click Save.
