Every Exercise begins with an Overview. The Overview is not a specific learning stage, but rather sets the stage for the Exercises learning stages. It sets forth the specific learning objective Learners will be practicing and be assessed upon in the relevant Exercise.
An Overview is automatically created when you create an Exercise. There are two things that will automatically populate the Overview: the title and the Exercise schedule. Competencies, assuming you added them to your Assessment Form, will automatically populate the Overview as well. There are two sections that will be blank, the description and supplemental content. You can choose to draft a description or add supplemental content or leave either blank. The following article outlines details on each section of the Overview.
Your title will be automatically populated from the text you previously entered. If you want to edit your title, please note that your Exercise title cannot exceed 255 characters.
Upon completing your edits, select the blue Save Changes button.
If you choose to draft a description for your Exercise, then it is important to note Learners appreciate clear directions on what they will be practicing and be assessed upon. There is no character limit for the Exercise description.
Select the blue Save Changes button when completing your description.
