Getting Started with Modules
The Konvert™ LMS is presented to users through Modules (Fig. 1). Each module holds an entire learning journey and is a collection of courses grouped together to provide a learning framework. Modules are also how you assign LMS content to your users.

THE LMS MODULE STRUCTURE
Konvert™ LMS module structure (Fig. 2) is made up of courses, chapters, activities and actions. Modules must contain at least one course, which must contain at least one chapter, which must contain at least one activity. While you must have at least one course, chapter and activity, you may create as many as you need. Actions are the individual questions or quizzes associated with an activity and help to reinforce learning.
