How does learning work in Engage ?

Learning in Engage is all focused around the idea of microlearning, so your staff can learn in short bursts quickly and easily. You can add tasks or questions to articles and you can group articles into courses. For example, you may want to create a course for new starters which contains all the articles they need to work through.

Courses are accessed from the 'Learn' section on Engage and you can also see your learn activity on the 'You' section. Admins can create and manage these playlists on the web. Questions and tasks can be added to articles in the Admin.

Courses can contain various sections, for example, a 'New Starters' course could contain different sections such as, 'Week 1' which contains all the articles the user needs to complete during that week.

Whilst viewing an article, you will be able to see any associated tasks at the bottom of the page. You can select a task to mark is as complete when you have completed it.

To view any associated questions select 'Start Questions' at the bottom of the page, then work through the questions before moving onto the next lesson.
