The purpose of this guide is to provide instructions for Site Content Creators (SCC) and Site Content Approvers (SCA) who are creating or editing Knowledge Park Library Resource on the Common Learning Portal (CLP) website. This document will provide:
- An explanation of what informal learning resources are and why they are valuable learning content for the Knowledge Park
- Instructions clarifying how to create and edit content
- Standardization of content creation processes to ensure the site content is consistent, high value, and appropriate.
What you’ll learn
- The definition of a CLP knowledge park library resource
- Technical user documentation (step-by-step guide to creating this WordPress post type)
- Formatting guidelines (There are nine types or resources in the knowledge park – formatting guidelines provide standardized headers and content guidelines for each)
Should your content live on the CLP, or should you link to it elsewhere?
Content that lives on the CLP can take multiple forms including:
- PDFs, Word Documents, and other files uploaded to the CLP Media Library; and
- Content created directly in the HTML on the page.
When you’re creating your CLP content, you can either create content that lives on the CLP, or you can create a short overview and link out to the content on another website. But how do you decide which is best? This quick-reference decision tree will help you decide where your content should live. If you have further questions, contact anyone from the Distance Learning Group.
