I am trying to make multiple courses with highly similar but not quite the
same content in each of them - each course is specialized to a specific
audience. I have 3 audiences: account managers, accountants, and sales
people, and each needs to share about 80% of core content, with about 20%
being specific to the audience.
However, I don't want to do a bunch of rework to create these slightly
different courses (i.e. have to create each course manually as if it is
completely new as opposed to sharing the core content with the other
What I have looked into:
- Libraries - Seems to be only for randomized content/questions
- Cohorts - Does not seem to provide distinction between different
groups other than in discussions, automatic assignment seems arbitrary
- Putting all content in one course and having students skip sections
unrelated to their specific track - Not sure how grading works with this
(can someone take the final without having gone through all course content,
can there be different final exams for each kind of student?). Also just a
little less professional than I'd like (but this isn't a deal breaker,
getting grading right would make this a good solution.
Thank you for any help! :)
