The Content Creation Kit is a resource page for anyone who is creating content for The Learning Portal. It includes guidelines for Portal content, and resources to help you create the content you will include.
Learning resource content is divided into three types of sections:
A Learning Portal hub is one of the major sections on the site, such as Study Skills, or Research. All learning resource content appears under one of these hubs. Some elements of the hub will be created by Algonquin College, while other elements must be provided by you. Hub pages include links to module pages or module content pages.
Modules are sections of content within a hub. For example, the Study Skills hub has modules such as Time Management, and Reading and Note-Taking. Not all hubs require module-level pages. Modules act as an additional step between the main hub page and the content pages. They divide the content into smaller sections when there is too much content to link directly to content pages. If you are creating modules, some elements of the modules will be provided by Algonquin College and some must be provided by you.
As the name suggests, the bulk of your content appears on a content page. This is where you will include activities, videos, text, tip sheets, and other learning content that you want to include in your hub. Content pages can appear immediately after a hub page (module content pages), or after a module page (sub-module content pages).
Some elements of the content pages will be created by Algonquin College, while the rest of the elements must be provided by you.
Your content will be reviewed, and it will be revised for grammar and consistency to ensure that it fits within the guidelines of The Learning Portal.
