Creating Curriculums with Macromedia Breeze Training

Organize Your Training with Folders

Curriculums allow training departments to combine related content, courses, and other items into a single program. If a curriculum becomes long or difficult to follow, you can use folders to organize the training into related groupings. This organization helps learners concentrate on certain areas and not become overwhelmed by a long course list. This article uses new mortgage training as an example. There are three main areas of this training: product training, training on selling, and assessment for the learner. Figure 7 shows how you might organize all that curriculum material into folders.

This curriculum starts with a review of mortgages. The learner continues on to the product folder. After the learner is familiar with products, the next step is to learn how to sell those products. The assessment folder, Sales Testing, validates the training by using an online exam and a virtual classroom to demonstrate communication skills. This curriculum provides a logical training program that students can easily follow and that training departments can use to ensure employees are properly trained.

Where to go from here

You can learn more about curriculums and Macromedia Breeze Training by exploring the following projects:

  • Create sample curriculums with existing content and then try changing prerequisites and completion rules to see how that affects the learning experience. Completion requirements can be used in folders as well as the entire curriculum.
  • View curriculum reports to see the valuable data Breeze tracks for each learner. Your sample curriculums are ideal for this task.
  • Test-out is a feature not discussed in this article. You use test-outs to assess a learner’s knowledge before taking a course. If the learner has sufficient knowledge, he can test out of the course and move on to the next item in the curriculum. Give it a try!
