Answers to Common Train Module FAQs

Do I have to enter Course Resources?

Stracl does not require this field to be filled in. However, course resources (terminal objectives) are a training industry best practice that many instructional designers follow and recommend to ensure the purpose/goal of the course is understood..

It is recommended that all training materials have them so that students and instructors align on what is being taught.

I do not have access to the Scheduling Menu. What functionality does this menu offer?

The Scheduling Menu is where you can build a training schedule by locations, classes, and users.

Contact your Stracl Admin if you need access.

Should I number all my classes?

It is a training industry best practice to number your courses. Here are three benefits to numbering courses:

  • Class names might change during the development process.
  • Numbering your courses makes it easier to locate courses for training material management purposes.
  • Numbering helps your learners understand the structure of your training program.

Can I organize the page for Course Overview for faster data entry?

Yes, go to your User Menu and select Screen Options.

Why would I disable an unused course, instead of deleting it?
