Can students skip around in a course or complete the course elements in any order they choose?

The DigitalChalk course delivery default is that a student must complete an element before being allowed to continue forward to the next element in the course. However, by changing delivery options for either the course or for specific course elements, you can allow your students to move about the course in any order they choose. These options can be changed at both the course and element levels using the following options;

Changing the course delivery:

  1. Click the Manage Courses tab.  The Courses list is displayed.
  2. Click the course name, then click Delivery Template from the displayed list.  The Set the Delivery Template window is displayed.
  3.  Click All Elements at Once, then click Save.  Students taking this course will be able to complete the course elements in any order they choose.

Changing the element delivery:

  1. Click the Manage Courses tab.  The Courses list is displayed.
