Managing learning objects and assets

Once an object or asset is in an LOR, you can edit the following:

If you want to make changes to an object beyond this, you must retrieve it from the LOR and then publish it again.

You cannot perform edits on non-local learning objects.

Moving learning objects and assets might cause users who follow links to these learning objects and assets to no longer be able to see those objects and assets if they do not have the necessary permissions.

Desire2Learn recommends caution when you move learning objects to different LORs since their predecessors stay in the repositories where they were overwritten. This causes problems with dynamic links generating “not accessible” errors when an overwrite and a move causes the user to lose the permission to view a learning object or asset.

Edit learning objects or assets' properties

  1. From an LOR Search Results page, select Manage Object from the context menu of the learning object/asset you want to change.
  2. Make changes to any of the object/asset’s properties.
    • If you move a learning object or asset to a destination LOR where you have different permissions than you do in the source LOR, the actions you can perform might change to reflect this.
    • Hidden learning objects and assets can only be seen by the user that published them and users that have sufficient permission. Hidden learning objects or assets have the  Hidden icon next to them on the LOR Search Results page.
  3. Click Save.

Edit multiple learning objects or assets

  1. From an LOR Search Results page, select the check boxes for the objects/assets you want to edit.
  2. Click the Manage Object icon on the action bar.
  3. Make changes to any of the object/assets’ properties the same way as for individual objects or assets. You cannot change rights for multiple objects.
  4. Click Save.

Add a review to a learning object or asset

  1. From any LOR search results, click the context menu for the object or asset you want to review.
  2. Click the Add Review menu item.
  3. If you want to rate the learning object, click one of the radio buttons in the Rating field.
  4. If you want to provide a comment, type it in the Comment field.
  5. Click the Save Review button.
