The principle to keep in mind here is: you can only add subjects to your course. You cannot add individual exercises to your course. 

First some background information on the terms we use here: 

  • The idea is that the item a student sees on the lesson map is a Subject. 
  • A Subject should consists of at least a number of Exercises. 
  • In addition, it may include a Lesson, meaning an explanation that teaches a student how to solve the Exercises linked to the Subject. 

Therefore, we call the thing a Lesson if it includes an explanation and call it a Subject if it only includes exercises. 

Scenario I: Exercises not yet organised into a Subject

You cannot add individual exercises to your course.
In order to publish exercises to your students, you first need to organise them into a Subject. Please refer to this article on how to achieve this.

Once you have linked them to a Subject, you can proceed to scenario II. 

Scenario II: Lessons / Subjects

Here is how to add Lessons/Subjects to your course:

Suppose you have created a copy of an exisiting lesson, changed a few things here and there. You can see this lesson in your repository. You now want to add it to your lesson map so that students can access it. 

1] Go to your lesson map. (in the top menu, click on 'Courses')

2] Make sure you have edit rights for this course. (You should see a white bar below the top menu) 

3] Click on 'edit'. 

You should now see the unlocked icon, stating 'editable'.

4] Go to the module you would like to add your lesson to. 

5] Type in the name of the lesson / subject you want to add to your course. It should come up. Note: lessons in your repository are displayed on top and followed by an asterisk sign ( * ). 

6] Click to add the lesson. 

7] Click 'Save' or 'Preview'. Your lesson/subject has now been added to your course!

If you have accidentally added the wrong lesson? No worries, you can easily remove it from your lessons, by hovering over the lesson and clicking the garbage can icon.
