A window will appear and prompt you to enter a Name, Description, and Location for the lesson. Fill out those fields and click NEXT, and you will come to a second page where you select the Domain and Sub-domain (Functional) or Subject and Grade (Academic) for the lesson. Once you’ve chosen those, click FINISH. (NOTE: Academic lessons not available in ONEder Home Edition)
Once the lesson is created, it brings you to the Activities tab within the lesson. The default view on this page has a list of activity types on the left, and a space on the right where you can drag and drop them to add them to the lesson. You can also click the ADD FROM LIBRARY button to search ONEder’s extensive library of premade and shared contest to add to your lesson. Once added, you can change the name or description of an activity by clicking the pencil icon that appears when you roll your mouse over each, or you can click the three vertical dots in the upper-right corner of the activity button to Copy, Duplicate, or Delete it.
If you click on the Suggested Content header on the left side of the screen, it will display a list of Activities and Assessments you can add that may pertain to the subject matter of the lesson. If you’d prefer to hide the left pane entirely, click on the Activities header to minimize it to the left side of the screen (You can click it again to make it reappear).
Each lesson configuration page includes a number of tabs across the top of the screen that lets you manage various elements of the lesson. Here’s what each of those tabs does:
- Activities: This is where you manage the activities contained in a lesson. You can add new ones, or click the three vertical dots in the corner of each activity to either Delete, Duplicate, or Copy them.
- Students: Use this tab to add and remove clients to and from the list of people whom the lesson will be published to.
- Goals: Allows you to configure lesson-specific goals separate from those configured in a student’s profile.
- Accommodations: Allows you to manage the accommodations available to a student while using this lesson.
- Vocabulary: Creates a special, visual vocabulary grid that’s available to students at all times in the ONEder Player.
- Properties: Allows you to view or edit the details you specified when creating the lesson. This tab also contains a very important switch that, when enabled, allows a lesson to be made available offline. This option is NOT enabled by default.
Finally, there’s three important buttons at the upper-right corner of the screen that we need to cover:
- The button enables collaboration on a lesson, allowing you to invite other professionals to view and edit a lesson with you.
- You can PREVIEW a lesson to see what it will look and sound like in the ONEder Player.
