My Custom Event (MCE) allows you to build Courses via your Learning Management Systems (LMS), and make them available for purchase via your Shopping Cart. Customers can take the Courses (without leaving MCE), and receive a Certificate after completing the Course.

Example: Kristen runs a tennis camp. She already partners with MCE to sell her camps and after-school programs, as well as products like rackets and tee-shirts. Additionally, Kristen is qualified to instruct people to become certified tennis coaches, and she wants expand her partnership with MCE to offer certification courses. 

Getting Started - Configuring Organizations and Organization Terms and Terminology

The educational landscape is exceptionally broad and varied, and so your LMS is highly configurable to meet these demands. Here are some useful configurations to get you started.

Organization Mode

Turning "ON" Organization Mode is helpful if you have multiple companies or institutions (called "Leads" in our system) that use your courseware. The Customer Relationship Manager (CRM) then allows these Leads to be tagged as Organizations. Do this by going to Settings -> Configuration and finding Organization Mode under System. If it isn't already "ON", toggle it and hit "Save".

If you don't like the term "Organization", you may also change it. For example, you may prefer "University". Change it by finding "Organization Term" under Terminology, updating the value, and clicking "Save".

Now, when you go to create/edit a Lead in your CRM, there is a Organization checkbox. 

Organization Terms

Organization Terms are like Academic Terms, eg Fall 2015 and Spring 2016. Turn them on by going to Settings -> Configuration and finding "Enable organization terms" under CRM. If it isn't already "ON", toggle it and hit "Save". 


Now, when you go to create/edit an Organization in your CRM, there is a Terms tab. Click it to define the terms for that Organization.

Organization Terms have Start Dates, End Dates, and Max Number of Credits. By defining these values, the System disallows Users from purchasing too many credits during a Term.

Credit Terminology Types

Some institutions call academic credits Competency Units or Course Hours, and others simply call them Credits. The values for Credit Terms are in a list. Go to Settings -> Lists and edit the list to view/edit the values.

Now, when you go to create/edit an Organization in your CRM, and you are on the Terms tab, you can choose the type of Credit Term that they use.

Courseware Structure Overview

Courses have multiple levels of containers. Each level contains the next -- think of a Russian doll.  At the top level is the Course itself. Courses contain Chapters, Chapters contain Exercises, and Exercises contain Activities. Activities is the lowest-level of container. These containers create the skeleton of the course.

Course containers have attributes. For example, the Course level has a Credits attribute that defines how many credits the course is worth. And Chapter, Exercise, and Activity containers have a Required attribute that defines whether or not a Student needs to complete it to pass the Course.

Course content goes into these containers. Depending on the level, the type of content that can be added is constrained.
