Getting started

Catalogues on the Learning Hub can include a content structure (folders) to help organise resources. Content structure can be added by the Learning Hub support team when the catalogue is created, or at any point by the catalogue administrators.

The first step is to identify the structure you require. We recommend using no more than three levels of parent/child folders to keep navigation simple for the user.

Once the catalogue’s content structure has been created, catalogue editors will be able to upload resources into any of the folders or subfolders within the catalogue.

If there are resources already inside the catalogue, by default they will sit underneath the newly created content structure. It is the responsibility of the catalogue administrator to ensure the existing resources are placed in the correct location within the new content structure.

This allows the option to Edit, Move up, Move down, Move or Delete the folder.

 

Folders with content in are identified by a green lozenge. These are the folders which will be publicly visible within the catalogue. Folders without resources are hidden from public view but are visible to catalogue editors when they are contributing resources.

Where a folder has resources within it the option to delete the folder is no longer available. This prevents any resources being deleted by mistake. To delete a folder that contains resources, firstly move the resources out of the folder, by selecting options next to the resource and then selecting Move.
