What elements of my V1.0 course will be converted to V2.0?

On September 2nd 2019, all Version 1.0 courses on OpenLearning will be automatically converted to V2.0. This article outlines which elements of your course will be preserved in the conversion, and which elements won't be.

In short, the course itself will stay as it is, but all V1.0 pages will be converted into new V2.0 pages (and any content that isn’t on a text page will be lost).

After the conversion, you can update and edit your pages to utilise the features available with V2.0.

  • Comments on pages
  • Page content
  • Student enrolments
  • Quizzes
  • Badges
  • Certificates
  • Kudos
  • Enrolment questions
  • Groups
  • Course landing page
  • Course banner, thumbnail and promo page image
  • Activities
  • All student submissions
  • Progress settings
  • Progress students have gained in the course
  • Any content or submissions on special pages such as Gallery, Blog and Announcements
  • Marking panel
  • Assessments

All V1.0 content pages will be converted into V2.0 content pages. 


For example, this V1.0 content page:


Will look like this when automatically converted to V2.0:


V1.0 activities WILL NOT be preserved in the conversion. The text component of the activity page, however, will be preserved and converted into a V2 course page. 


For example, this V1.0 activity page:


Will look like this when automatically converted to V2.0:

Note: The submission activity has not been preserved in the conversion. This activity would need to be recreated using the V2.0 activity widgets.

The comments from V1.0 would be preserved.

You can recreate activities using the extensive widget library available in V2.0.

Below is an example of a V1.0 submission activity, recreated in V2.0 using a share file and gallery widgets.

When a page is in Edit mode, you can drag, edit and reorder widgets on the page to create your desired design.
