The authoring section provides authors with all necessary tools and little helpers for creating, editing and importing courses and other learning resources. The term learning resources is used for filing learning content on the one hand (via the tab "Learning resources") and for the learning content stored there on the other hand (e.g. courses, tests, Wikis, etc.).
Just like Courses, the Authoring section opens on the Favourites tab. Courses bookmarked in the courses section are also listed here. Additionally, all other bookmarked learning resources can be found here. The tab "My Entries" lists all learning resources you have created or you have been appointed as owner (co-author).
The search mask helps you to find all learning resources you have access to. You can look for title, description, type, author or ID.
Each learning resource will be explained in the detailed view by means of metadata. These metadata give further information on e.g. who has access to the learning content. The owner of a learning resource can modify the name of his learning resource, its description or access as well as add other owners.
This chapter introduces you to various types of learning resources, operations available in the authoring section an information on the info page, the detailed page of a learning resource. Last but not least, information on catalog administration will be provided.
