Curriculum/Program

The MangoApps learning platform facilitates the creation of educational programs, referred to as curriculums. A curriculum is a sequence of courses structured into steps that must be completed to attain a certificate or fulfill training requirements. It can be assigned to users and, if necessary, designated as mandatory to finish within a specified timeframe, similar to a course. A curriculum may consist of a combination of Self-Paced courses and Instructor-Led courses.

Curriculum

A curriculum/program consists of 1 or more steps to logically organize series of courses. A curriculum/program can be setup to include both self-paced & instructor-led courses in one curriculum/program (a.k.a. blended learning)

Use the video introduction to post an overview of the curriculum/program

Details

Code, Price, Credits Earned, Estimated Duration, Language, Hashtags, Instructor
Use the hashtags field to enter keywords for the curriculum/program to make it easy to find it using search
Credit hours of the curriculum is a sum total of the credit hours of the courses in it. Credit hours are automatically calculated for the curriculum/program
