Story View question

We are preparing to use the story view template for our tutorials. Is there a certain time length you recommend we don't exceed with these? The chapters and sections on the side make it easy to separate information out, but curious if there is a limit for how much we put in there.

There isn't a specific maximum to the number of Learning Objects or Pages that the Storyview theme supports.

For example, in our Introduction to Authoring in Claro Guide, we have 10 Learning Objects and around 80 pages in total.

You can see that here: Introduction to Authoring in Claro >> https://dki.io/51391994 

And it could easily support more.

So probably the more critical size consideration is the user experience. Our industry used to make multi-module single courses that were hours long, and now we typically make multiple separate courses and connect them as a curriculum in the LMS to help the learner better reach the necessary milestones.

Hope this helps!

Can you please explain what you mean by making multiple separate courses and connect them as a curriculum in the LMS? We are new to this process. Thank you!

Apologies in advance if this explanation starts out further "back" than you need!

When you've finished your Project in dominKnow | ONE you'll publish it out so you can upload it as a course into your LMS, where your learners will be registered for it and their completions and test scores will be tracked.

LMSs also have the ability to connect or string together several separate courses into a curriculum or a learning path (different LMSs use different terms). So the learner takes the Introduction course, then when that's completed they are automatially enrolled in the Level 2 course, etc.

So the "size" of what you publish as a course from dominKnowe | ONE is really up to you. Way back, our own content team used to make courses that were 8 hours long, divided into 8 modules within the one course. It's more common now for that to be created as 8 separate one-hour courses and then have the LMS connect them together, typically that provides better reporting in your LMS for completion, as well as benefits to the learner experience (an 8-hour course can be daunting, but dividing it up into smaller often presents it as more manageable, for example, even though it's still 8 hours total).

Does this help?

Yes this helps. Thank you for the explanation! I will research with our LMS.
