Learning objectives are the explicit statements that explain what students are learning. They are used in Coursetune to roll up into the course goals and connect to activities and assessments. They are the element that sits on both design layers of a course that describe what students learn and when.
Editors and Managers may need to edit these LOs from time to time as part of the continuous improvement process.
There are a few ways that you can edit learning objectives:
- Clicking an LO and using the Learning Objective panel
- Using the Expanded Learning Objective panel
- Using the LO batch editor
