What is a Collection?
A collection is a set of resources that your users can access at any time. Users do not need to go through them in a particular order or complete a test to access them. They can consist of a combination of videos, audio files, quizzes, notes and documents (such as pdf's). Once you have created your collections you can assign them to different user groups depending on who you want to have access to them. You will be able to access data on how users perform on quizzes as you can when they do quizzes on courses
