[ANSWERED] Please explain: Learning objects TABS

Post by forrestad »

Hello. I'm new to Forma LMS and evaluating it to see if it will fit my organization's needs. I am impressed by the work done by the developers in many areas. I could use some help understanding some parts of the Forma LMS system. I only have access to Forma version 2.3 at this time. But, please if features have been added to version 2.4.2, please feel free to describe how the functional requirement can be met by the software.

QUESTION:
What is the intended function of the tabs within the "Learning Object Management" screen? When would an instructor use "My Objects -vs- Course Objects -vs- Shared Objects"? Can I assume that "My Objects" are only seen by the logged-in user who created them? With whom are "Shared Objects" shared and where are they displayed?

I discovered this page of documentation, which I had previously overlooked.

Hi
My Objects => only the logged in users, so he can recycle them in different courses
Course Objects => the course teacher or admin and - of course - the students of that specific course
Shared objects => they are only displayed there, and they are shared among those (course admins, teachers...etc.) that have the right to see shared objects. The purpose is to be able to recycle them across courses.
