Modules contain the actual training content — Topics, Concepts, and Activities.

Note: Only available in accounts with a Team, Growth, or Enterprise plan. Contact our Support Team if you are interested in upgrading.

Adding a Module

Modules are created from the Mastery Profile context panel. This allows you to quickly add and map out your content in one step.

To add a Module, follow these steps:

  1. Create a Mastery Profile.
  2. Click +Module.
  3. Select Create New Module in the dropdown.
  4. Enter the Module name.
  5. Set the Mastery Goal.
  6. Add any prerequisites.
  7. Repeat steps 2-6 for each Module.
  8. Click Save.

You will need to edit your Module to customize its setup  (see Editing a Module section, below).

Sequence

Mastery Profile context panel, Modules tab. The Sort Children By dropdown is opened and two options are available: Alphanumeric and Manual.

By default, your Modules will appear in alphanumeric order. You can customize this sequence by selecting Manual in the Sort Children By dropdown.  

Mastery Goal

Mastery Profile context panel, Modules tab. Close-up of the Add Module section. Two dropdowns appear called Module and Mastery Goal. There is also a button to add a prerequisite and a button to add a Module. A label that reads "Set a mastery goal" is pointing at the Mastery Goal dropdown.

For each Module, you can specify the mastery goal (the minimum mastery level). This is the level of knowledge that you require your users to achieve.

Since the mastery goal is set on the Mastery Profile: Modules tab, the same Module can have a different goal set for each Mastery Profile.

If the same Module is assigned to a user through multiple Mastery Profiles, OttoLearn will use the highest mastery goal set for that Module. 

Prerequisites

Mastery Profile context panel, Modules tab. Close-up of the Add Module section. Two dropdowns appear called Module and Mastery Goal. There is also a button to add a prerequisite and a button to add a Module. A label that reads "Add a prerequisite" is pointing at the +Prerequisite button.
You can also set one or more Modules as prerequisites.

For example, if you set Module B as a prerequisite to Module A, then prior to the user receiving Activities in Module A they will need to first reach their mastery goal in Module B.

Since prerequisites are set on the Mastery Profile: Modules tab, the same Module can have different prerequisites set for each Mastery Profile.

Prerequisites only apply when doing a Mastery Moment. Users will be able to explore content and complete Mini Moments without having to complete any prerequisites.

Editing a Module

To edit a Module, select it from the Mastery Profile context panel or Module grid view. We recommend editing Modules from the Mastery Profile context panel while in the map view.

This will open the Module context panel where you can customize the information that appears in the following tabs:
