About Bo Bennett, PhD

One of the challenges in the marketing of online courses is getting prospective students to commit to doing the work needed to complete a course. While interactivity is great for learning, some people just prefer the more passive types of learning where information is "fed" to them. For this reason, we have the passive microlearning mode.

You would set this mode before the creation of the course (never after it has been created) in Instructor Menu > Setup Course > Course Setup > Passive Microlearning Mode. Selecting this option limits the course interactivity but sends students the lessons by e-mail, one each day. The course content will be limited to HTML content and an optional one video per day/lesson.
