Two ways of viewing and working with your Project's Outline

The panel to the left of the Stage is chock-a-block full of features to help you as your work on a Project.

It has two different display modes:

  • Card View, which displays thumbanils (Cards) for each Page
  • List View, which is a tree or item based menu

Card View

Card View is the default display mode when you first start using dominKnow | ONE.

It shows a thumbnail for each page (we call them Cards). It’s a simplified, visual-based approach to showing the content outline.

 

We describe Card View as simplified because it doesn’t focus on displaying the Learning Object (LO) or Module structure. It focuses only on Pages. We feel it’s an ideal mode for basic content authoring.

You can re-arrange the Page order by simply dragging and dropping the Cards. 

On the bottom left of each Card is a circle. Click on it and you can set a color-coded status for the page:  

 

The color-coding is a great way for you to organize your work. Red might be for pages not yet done while green is "good to go" - whatever color coding works for you.

Each card has a three-dot or “ke-bab” menu which opens a panel with the following options: 

 

You can change the Page Name just by clicking on it and typing.

Properties opens the Page Properties panel on the right side of the Stage.

Duplicate creates a duplicate of the page at the bottom of your Project.

Delete lets you delete the page. If you delete a page, it's removed from your Project structure and moved to the Deleted page list, right beside the Structure.

If a teammate has a Page checked out, you’ll see her avatar at the bottom of the card:

 

Test Questions in Card View

Test questions are shown at the end of the Card View list, identified by the Question Pages header:

 

If you author in Card View only, all your content pages and test questions will be contained in a single Learning Object.

This makes Card View a great way to author in a simple project structure.

Card View and Multiple LOs and Modules

Card View shows the pages in a single Learning Object. If you only have one LO in your project, then Card View essentially shows all the pages in your project. 
  
If you create content that uses more than one Learning Object or Module, you’ll see a drop-down list at the top of the Structure so you can switch between LOs: 

 

List View

To switch to List View, select the three-dot menu icon at the top of the panel then select List View: 

 

List View is a tree or item menu of the content structure: 

 

List View shows the Module and Learning Object structure, including the Test Questions for each LO.

You can move Pages, LOs and Modules up and down in the Outline just by drag and drop. You can also drag Test questions into the content portion of an LO to have them become a Practice question or drag Practice questions into the Test Questions folder to change them into assessment questions.

You can rename any item in the menu just by double-clicking its name (if you have it in Edit mode). 

You can use the triangle icons to collapse/reveal all items at the respective level, such as Pages in an LO or Questions in a Test Question folder.

A checkmark on the left-side page icon indicates you have the page in Edit mode. An avatar to the right of a page means a team member has it in Edit mode. No check mark and no avatar means the page is checked in.

(Edit Mode is one half of the Commit/Edit process, which is covered in this article.)

You can use the dots to the left of each page to set color-coding. 

Which View should you use?

This is one of those, "It depends," questions.

What we find is that Card view is perfect for geting started in dominKnow | ONE. It's similar to other tools in the learning and elearning world and it's well-suited to projects with a simple structure like a short course with a few test questions. 

But as your projects become more complex and take advantage of Learning Objects you'll probably find yourself working in List View more.
