Learning Component

Learning Components are the basic building blocks of your training content.

There are five types of Learning Components

Component Statuses

There are 3 statues for each component. They are described in the following table.

Visibility

There are 5 visibility types for each component. They are described in the following table.

VisibilityDescription
Everyone (Public)

Default status, indicates the Learning Component is available for everyone. The Learning Component is available via URL and linked to on the website (i.e: catalog). 

Everyone with the URL (Hidden)The Learning Component is for a specific audience. The Learning Component is available via direct URL but will not be listed on the website (i.e: catalog). 
Only signed in users (Member)The Learning Component is only visible to contacts who have signed in. The Learning Component is available via direct URL and will also be listed on the website (i.e: catalog) if the contact is authenticated 
No one - optionally redirect to new URL (Deprecated)The Learning Component won't be listed in the catalog for anyone. Access via direct URL will redirect to the home page. 
This would be the "Recommended Option" if a Learning Component is bundled in a "Course/Learning Pathway" and would not be preferred to be be listed in the catalog for anyone as an individual component.
Custom (based on catalog group) * (Custom)If the Custom Catalog View feature is disabled, any content marked with Visibility = Custom (depends on catalog groups) will continue to be visible to everyone until the feature is enabled.

Please refer to our Custom Catalog View Documentation for more information on the following feature.
