    I wanted to follow-up on this.  Some my Learning Experiences copied over as Documents.  Some as Resources.  Not sure what the differences are for these.

    Hi Becca,

    These three types all use a single resource. At the moment they will behave the same but are designed to evolve for future functionality. You should use:
    - Quick Launch for self contained courses/interactive content made with Adapt/Storyline/etc.
    - Document for online content that can be passively engaged with like articles, blogs, videos, podcasts, etc.
    - Activities for actions that require the user to do something, like creating a blog, uploading a document, presenting a talk, etc.

    Activity will be the default type for all of the previous Develop Learning Experiences, apart from Undertake An Online course which will default to Branching.

    Can I ask for further information on the issue with Learning Experiences being copied over? Do you mean during the upgrade to Headstream and how did they change?

    During the upgrade to Headstream they changed over to all Documents under Settings > Display Options > Type. Some of the interactive content was asking you to enroll in the course before viewing the resource. I believe that after I changed these resources to Quick Launch that they launch automatically now.  I just wanted to understand further the implications.  

    How does the Learning Experience type differ from the Type?  For instance - what would I put for both the Learning Experience type and the Display Options > Type if we are linking to an outside url/learning course in our corporate LMS? I have it set as eLearning as the Learning Experience Type but Document as the Type under Display Options.  Is that correct?

    Apart from Undertake an Online Course, the Learning Experience Type is just to indicate to the user what the activity would involve. This is cosmetic only and can be set as you see fit.

    Display Options > Type will have a functional effect.

    The first four are the traditional Curatr course types and use a level view: Classic, Linear, Non Linear, Branching

    The last three, Quick Launch, Document and Activity, are all "Single object" and only allow the use of one resource. As in my previous reply, these currently behave the same but are planned to be expanded later.
