Redesign of the "New learning resource" page

The new learning resource page should be redesigned to include only the "Multimedia page" and "Presentation" + Link: more learning resouce types (PILOT, etc.)

This will make the page very simple and put focus on the most important resources. We may have in the first place some other resources, too, if there will come up some "commonly used" resources.

  • Priority changed from minor to critical

I think that we should have three main resource types, not two:

  • multimedia page
  • presentation
  • exercise

Then we could have a link "More learning resource types..." (or "All learning resource types..."). This other page could list the resource types and descriptions, but maybe it is better to do it without icons. It is complicated to create a good icon for each possible resource type and a lot of icons will take a lot of space.

Other learning resource types include PILOT, book (#1123), glossary (#394) (when accepted), etc.

About exercise template: we discussed that with Teemu and Tarmo two weeks ago but I haven’t written a story about that yet. Basically it is multimedia page with two interactive question types (multiple choice, fill in the blanks) and one non-interactive question type.

First resources created by teachers show that there is a need for this resource type. Currently they are writing questions to multimedia pages.

I made a mistake 2 comments ago. Book (#1123) is not a learning resource.

I made a mistake 2 comments ago. Book (#1123) is not a learning resource.

I am all the time confusing what is "resource", "content" and "learning resource". It could also help if the following pages wouldn't visually look so similar with three large icons:

New content: http://lemill.net/content/lemill_content_add

New learning resource http://lemill.net/content/lemill_choose_template

Also the wording in the pages is confusing. With some "objects" it says "New ..." and in some "Add new..." and then sometimes just the title, e.g. "Multimedia page", even that you are actually adding something new to the system. Should be fixed.
