When a module is marked as optional, the completion of that module is not included in the completion status. This means that an optional module does not need to be completed for that course to be completed. For example, if you have two modules and the second is marked as optional, the first module is the only module that will need to be completed. At least one mandatory module is required in a course to ensure completion can be calculated correctly.
To set a module as optional, navigate to the “Content” sub tab of a course and click on the switch next to the module (see image below).
Learners will see a grey “OPTIONAL” tag next to any optional modules.
The Page of information module can be used to display text, images, hyperlinks, files from your Box or Dropbox accounts. If you use the Source view it is even possible to utilize full HTML, treating it as a webpage within your course.
Common uses for these modules are to introduce a course, separate sections of a course or to embed content from other website URLs using an IFRAME.
IFRAMEs are HTML based therefore you’ll need to switch to Source view, using the toolbar icon at the top right of the editor window.
Use the code below to insert a You Tube video: <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/EfsgfcU1Xyo" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
Or insert a page from a website, such as the page used to sell your courses within Litmos: <iframe width="1000" height="1000" src="https://andym.litmos.com/self-signup/index" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
During editing you will see a box with a red IFRAME label inside it, so to test the result save the module and click Preview Course.
