Administrator Role: Managing Content Development in dominKnow | ONE
Themes, Baselines, Publishing Profiles and Reports
Themes determine the overall appearance of certain elements of your project.
Themes control the learner’s experience of the content, by setting how the content is presented to the learner and how the learner navigates through it.
Themes also set the overall look and feel of the content pages, including colors and other branding-related styles.
You can choose from one of our system themes, or create themes of your own using the Theme Designer.
Themes are based on the default Player Experiences available in dominKnow | ONE. There are different Player Experiences available for Claro content and Flow content (some Player Experiences are available for both, and some are available for only on or the other).
These resources outline the different Player Experiences for Claro and Flow content.
Themes and Variants
In addition to new Themes, you can create a Variant of an existing Theme. A Variant allows you to alter the originating Theme’s color and style, but not its functionality.
Administrators can create new Themes and new Variants. Authors can only create Variants.
This resource outlines the differences between Themes and Variants.

Baselines (Your Organization's Templates)
A Baseline is a great way to speed up the development of new projects, especially if you have many projects that all share a standard structure.
For example, all your eLearning courses will have an Introduction with the same three pages, and each lesson has essentially the same structure, etc.
A Baseline is a project that your authors can quickly duplicate to start a new project, and they're available on the Create New Project panel.
In addition to starting a project from a Baseline, authors can also add specific page content from any Baseline into the Project they are currently working on. The Add a Page panel includes a From a Baseline option to facilitate this.
You can set any project to be a Baseline. That could be a project you've just completed (which has "real" content in it), or it could be a "template" project that you create with placeholder content.
This resource explains some use cases for Baselines plus offers some tips for creating them.
This resource shows how to set a Project to be a Baseline, and then shows how the Baseline is available for use by authors.
Publishing Profiles allow you to set behaviors for your Project, for example, testing (assessment) behaviors including pre- and post-test settings or forcing learners to complete content sequentially.
The list of available Publishing Profile options is quite long and detailed.
You can create as many Publishing profiles as you need.
This resource outlines the Publishing Profile options.
This resource outlines how to create and manage Publishing Profiles.
