Max: We've got six templates available and the first one is Basic Course, and by the way, every course template has this More Info button which has the description of what this template is about, what is the general approach used for building this template and why and when this template should be used. So basically, when you log onto your system, you can click to every single template and learn what it does.

So, let's take an example of Basic Course. This is a very simple course which has a portion of theory and it has assessment in them, so basically, you can use such template when you have a short small portion of theory and then you want to check how well people understand the theory. And, it just has some Intro Page, then Lesson, then Control Tests, and then some advice on further steps for the audience. So, let's say you've got a new procedure on how to register a customer in your CRM system right? So, what you're going to do is to choose this Basic Course, put some picture, maybe a screenshot from your CRM onto the Intro Page, then within the Lesson, put instructions on how to do the registration and then in the Test, you will do the assessment of this lesson. Let's say, you can ask some questions, okay, so which buttons do you click in what sequence? Which fields should you fill in? What, I don't know, what customer type should you choose for this example or that example, and this is something that you could assess in this test.

And finally, you could conclude with some recommendations, like hey, these are links to user tutorials and user guides of our new CRM system so if you want to learn more about this, go ahead and read these documents, so this is an example of how you would use Basic Course template.

Let's talk about Certification. So Certification is the course which basically contains two main parts; one is the Test which assesses some portion of knowledge, and the Success or Failure page. So, if you want your employees or students to get certified to some procedure or technology, what you're going to do is to create a test that evaluates the knowledge without any preliminary theory and give this test to your employees and students. And, later, you will be able to check the statistics on this certification and see who managed to succeed and who failed this test, and there is some more, well I would say that these two templates are our most popular ones and they are four more that are kind of advanced templates. So, let's say Discovery Quest is the sample of how you would present a theory split into three portions and you would allow your students to go through the spaces of theory in any sequence they like. So, this is just an example so if you have a bigger course, because on basic course you may split it into several parts and connect them as it is displayed here, so, nice things on how to keep people engaged even in a large trainings.

Then, Featured Trainings. This is some template that utilizes, you know pure project efficiency pattern so it has Preliminary Assessment then portion of theory and then Post-Assessment which has exactly the same set of questions, so this course is used to check how well students know some certain things before they start learning it, then they learn it and finally you see how efficient was the course to learn these new things. So, you just compare the Preliminary Assessment and Post-Assessment results to see how efficient the training was.

And, two more things; one is the course that has two complexity levels. So, let's say you have some topic that has some basic information and that has advanced information. So, you may make, you may create a Preliminary Assessment that checks the level of knowledge and if a person doesn't know the basic stuff, you can put this person through basic part of the course and if the person is already comfortable with the basic part and successfully processes this assessment, we can move this user to an advanced section of the course and go to the final assessment afterwards. This is useful if you don’t want your students to waste their time on the things that they already know, and still you don’t want to make the course complicated for those who don't know some basic things. So, you may go ahead and create these type of courses or create even more complexity levels as necessary.

And finally, this is something close to what I've shown you in the very beginning, so this is the user interface tutorial or software emulation, if you will. We've just done this with YouTube. This is just a set of pages with some screenshots and pictures and explanation text that are connected to each other with quick transitions, so this emulates real software behavior dependent on how user uses control elements of this software, clicks buttons, checks and boxes, using selects and so on and so forth. So, if you want or if you need to explain some software and make it interesting and engaging for a [music] student, you will need to go with this template.
