Folder Landing Page - Where does the content come from?

In the release notes that described the Activities Folder Landing Page addition, the screenshot and text indicated that besides folder contents, there could also be a description, vocabulary, or resources added.  Where does this content come from?  Initially I thought it would come from the right hand items associated to the folder in the Curriculum Map; however, in testing those do not appear on the landing page.

Thanks!

Great question, Sami. We'll make sure to document that more appropriately. 

A "folder landing page" displays the folder thumbnail (A), folder title (B), metadata (C), description (D), and folder contents (E).

As you discovered, the metadata in the settings panel for the folder (in the Curriculum Map) is where you would add that content in the metadata (C) section. However, an admin has to enable that metadata to be visible to the student. To do so, the admin would:

  1. Login to the Admin app.
  2. Open Domain Settings.
  3. Select the Course Options tab.
  4. Add or edit an existing Activity Metadata.
  5. Select the "Visible to student" checkbox.
  6. Click Save.

Once complete, any content provided in those metadata fields will be visible to the student in the folder landing page.

Does this help?

Hi Brad -

Thanks for the details, it worked great. However, when we tested it seems that the metadata titles remain on the landing page even after the content within is deleted from the Curriculum Map.  Any thoughts?

See screenshot:  

Thanks, 

Sami

Hey Sami, it is because once you save something in those fields, a resource is created. When you delete the content, the resource still exists but it happens to be empty. I will look into seeing if we can address this in a future release.
