Can you post screenshots so we can better understand?
It’s possible to put the content outside of a course, but, if you want to track enrollments, completions, award credit, etc., the content will need to live in a course. Once it’s in a course, the learner will have to enroll and view the instructions page. So I don’t think it’s possible to get to to the content in than 3 clicks if it’s in a course.
- Enroll (Click “Take course”)
- View instructions and click module name
- View content, or,
- If the user has a popup blocker they will need to click to launch.
Depending on your content, you may be able to embed it in a way that doesn’t require a popup window, for example, by using an iframe or embed code.
If the user is already enrolled, you can use a deeplink to send them directly to the course object.
Making instructions page configurable is not something high on our product backlog at this time. It will introduce tricky issues in some cases - where to send users when no course object is available yet, where to send users when the system can’t precisely tell where the learner “should” go, for example in a non-linear course or with skippable course objects, etc. If there is a chorus of voices asking for it, we might review it again, but as of now it’s unlikely to be addressed in a future release.
