A unit’s completion method defines which conditions a learner has to meet to mark it as “Completed.”
To view or set a unit’s completion rules, click to edit the unit and move to the "How to complete it" (1) section.
Different types of units might show different completion rules, but here are all the most common ones:
- With a button
- With a question
- After a period of time
- After video ends
With a button
This option allows learners to complete the unit by pressing the Complete (2) button ('Complete and continue' if there is a unit that follows).
With a question
This option requires learners to answer a question (3) to complete the unit.
Note: “With a question” option will appear only if you already have at least one question created in the same lesson where this unit resides. The unit creator will be asked to select one of the questions available. To learn how to create tests and questions, click here.
After a period of time
This option will automatically complete the unit after a specified period of time (4).
With this option selected, you can also set the timer to stop for idle users by clicking the “Pause timer when idle for (seconds)” checkbox.
This option will automatically complete the unit the moment a learner visits it.
After video ends
This option appears only after you have uploaded a file recognized as a video. To learn more about the available features after a video or audio upload, read this article.
This option is set as default for content such as SCORM/xAPI and AICC, as these content types have their own internal completion rules. As a result, no completion option needs to be selected and, even if you try to pick a different completion method, the system will recognize this type of content and set it back to ‘None.’
In some cases, course creators can also use this completion rule for other types of units temporarily or on purpose to prevent users from proceeding for any reason. For example, they might need to update the next unit of a Serial Rule enabled course. This way, they can stop learners from accessing a unit they are currently working on.
Note: H5P units might show “With a button,” “None,” or other completion methods. This depends both on the specific H5P library and the way it is added. For example, if you create a new H5P unit (Add Content > Add Unit > H5P), the completion rule will be “With a button.” On the other hand, if you add an H5P unit by uploading a file, the completion rule will be “None.” Most H5P libraries don’t have a specific completion method (i.e., Chart, Accordion), so you have to select one during creation. In addition to that, other libraries have internal completion rules (i.e.m Single Choice Set, which gets completed if the user answers correctly to the questions). In this case, the completion rule is set to 'None.’
