How can I delete a file in the Resources section of a draft course? How can I reorder the files in the Resources section of a draft course?

If the answer is I can't, please consider my questions to be a feature request. Thank you.

Thanks for the question Anna Marie. Yes, I've logged a similar feature request myself.

Thanks for the question Anna Marie. Yes, I've logged a similar feature request myself. Here's a bit of clarity on how Prime handles editing states for courses being authored.

There are essentially three states of a course, once you have authored that course.

  • DRAFT - you've started to define the course, and perhaps even saved it, but not yet published it.
  • PUBLISHED - you've published a course, and it is update-able (you can update modules)
  • RETIRED - you've retired the course. You can republish a retired course, but it becomes only partially editable.

In most cases, the retired state allows you to edit the basics - eg. name of course, description etc. but there are aspects of a retired course that cannot be edited. (IOW it doesn't return to DRAFT state.)

Here are the things that cannot be edited in RETIRED state:

  1. You cannot add a course module.
  2. You cannot delete a course module.
  3. You cannot re-sequence the order of course modules
  4. You cannot alter the navigation access for course modules
  5. You cannot alter the assigned skills / skill credits
  6. You cannot alter the enrollment type (eg. self enroll, manager approved etc.)

So perhaps more importantly, in the immediate term. You can duplicate a course, and effectively that returns you to a DRAFT state. The advantage is that it gets the course back to DRAFT - fully editable, without having to recreate the content. You'll be able to reorder modules etc.  The disadvantage is that if you've already deployed the course - and want the data combined - you'd have to aggregate the data of the original and the new one together in your reports.

Thanks again for your comments. I'll be sure to share them with Deepak and the Prime engineering team.
