I’m running a pure online free training program. In order to make material more accessible for people before they know whether they care about a given topic or not, I want to make a version of the class which just includes intro modules from a larger class, so that people can skim through quickly to see what kind of stuff is covered. Then if they want to take the class, I’d have a medium-content version which has the same intro modules for sections, but also includes the deeper material. And then I’d have the full-content version of the class for people who want to be experts in the area.
My question is whether it’s possible to link the material between classes, so that first someone completes say 5 units from the minimal class 1, and then when they start the 20 unit class 2, it already shows them as having completed the overlapping 5 units?
(Would this perhaps be possible via cohorts where all cohorts have access to the level 1 material but then only the full & medium cohorts have access to the medium material, and only full to full? If so, how could students actually change themselves between cohorts (rather than requiring an instructor to change them?))
