Adding / Editing Modules

The Konvert™ learning management system (LMS) is presented to users through modules. Each module holds and entire learning journey. Modules are the highest level of learning and function like a "school." Each module is configured as a separate learning experience.

Note: Each module 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 in a module, you may create as many as you need.
