I love the content collection and being able to store one copy of an item and then simply link to it across modules.
But I've noticed that lesson plans and learning modules don't get stored there, so assuming you want the same structures and plans to support multiple delivery of the courses, you still need to create the lesson plan container each time?
is that correct or is there some way to do this, while preserving integrity of the resources held in the content collection (rather than copy or move).
The things saved in the content collection are individual files. As you observed, Learning Modules and and Lesson Plans are actually organizational containers or structures within the course, and that's why they can't be saved to the content collection. However, I think you can still copy a Lesson Plan from one course to another or from one area of a course to another by selecting "Copy" from the pull-down menu next to the title, and the links to items in the content collection are preserved without duplicating the items themselves.
Does that help?
