- What are the layout options for viewing my course?
- How can I see my course as a list?
- How can I see my course as a grid?
- What if I don't like viewing my course as a circle?
1. Circle View is where you can see the 10,000-foot view of your course, program, or division. In the circular view, it's easy to see gaps, activity and assessment alignment, the emphasis of the course objectives, mappings to program-level outcomes, interleaving of concepts, and more.
In circle view, users can view, comment, edit, and manage the course.
2. Linear View is where you can view (only) a detailed list of
- Division (Level 2) - all of the programs within a division
- Program (Level 3) - all of the courses within a program
- Course (Level 4) - all of the LOs for the course by either bundle or c-layer
The columns available in linear view differ depending on which level you are on. For example,
- Course (Level 4) linear view helps instructors while teaching the course because it provides a detailed list of all of the LOs by module or goal.
- Program (Level 3) linear view helps curriculum committees to view a complete list of courses within a collection or offering, whether it's a grade level (K12), degree program, certificate or other kinds of credential.
- Division (Level 2) linear view helps a department or division to see all of their available learning offerings and summary metrics.
3. Grid View is where you can view and edit the mappings between the objectives on the course (LOs and CLOs) and outcome sets (PLOs, DLOs, ILOs), which are listed in the right-side panel. If you are an editor for the course, this is the easiest way to map! We highly recommend trying it out.
In grid view, users can view or edit the mappings for the course.
*Note that you can access all of these views through the LMS integration!
Views available at the Course Level (Level 4):

Views available at the Division Level (Level 2):
To switch to Linear View:
Linear View is great for level folders with a large number of elements. See divisions (Level-2 folders), programs (Level-3 folders), and courses (level-4 objects), and their elements listed in a neat linear format.
Locate the Views in the lower-left panel, then click the Linear View icon (three lines). You may navigate in the left panel between Level 2, Level 3, and Level 4.
You may also navigate to Level-3 or course by selecting the item directly from the Linear View panel. Using the up and down chevrons on the header row, sort programs alphanumerically by name, ID, number of courses, number of bundles, number or LOs, or number of activities.
At the course level, when you select an element such as a learning objective, the Descriptions panel (on the right) will show all of the information about that element.
The Mappings panel will be available to view in the right panel, although no mapping, editing or tuning is allowed while viewing in Linear View.
In the course, the grayed-out chevron indicates when there are no LOs sitting under the bundle or C-layer.
Note: A Level-3 folder containing 50 or more courses (level-4 objects) will default to Linear View to make loading times faster. You can switch to circle graph view at any time.
To switch to the Grid View:
Make sure you are in the course (level-4 object) and locate the Views in the lower-left panel. Select the Grid View icon (3X3 square). You can now choose an outcome set to display. The grayed-out sets contain no mapping data, but can still be chosen.
If you choose Edit mode, you can map this outcome set to your C-layers, bundles, and LOs. You can switch between the Bundle layer and the C-layer, and choose a different outcome set from the drop-down menu at the top of the screen. The grayed-out chevrons indicate when there are no LOs sitting under the bundle or C-layer.
You may also get to Grid View by selecting an outcome set in the right panel and clicking on the grid icon.
