Course Page

The Course page is accessed by clicking on the Open Course button on the Program Builder Page as discussed here. On this page you can view, add, remove, and edit activities as well as add a new day and publish the program you've built. Click How to build a course to see how to add activities to your course.

Course Page Layout

Course Layout

The banner at the top of the page includes:

  • Courses/Course Name
  • Description of the course
  • Publish button - Publishes the program you've built
  • Jump to day search box - Type in the day number you wish to jump to for viewing or editing.
  • Filter icon - Lets you switch between a horizontal scrolling view or a weekly grid view (see clip below). The default setting is for horizontal scrolling. This is saved locally, meaning you can close the browser and return to this layout, but once you log out, it resets to the default.

Views

Beneath the banner are columns for each day which include:

  • The Day number
  • Estimated Course length
  • - Clicking this give you access to the Delete button to delete the day
  • Activities (and the estimated time of completion)

How to Build a Course

Add activities to build out your course.

  1. Hover your mouse in the column (day) you wish to add an activity; the + Add Activity button appears at the bottom right of the column.

    Add Activity

  2. Click the + Add Activity button to open the list of activities. Activities are listed as verbs. When filling out activity parameters, in all cases, except fasting and sleep activities, the title should begin with a lowercase letter as it completes the rest of the verb's sentence. The example shows the activity's parameters in the top portion of the image and the lower part shows how the parameters display on the activity chip.

    Program Activity Verbiage

  3. Complete the parameters for the selected activity (these vary based on the activity chosen). The possible parameters include:

    • Activity name
    • URL (for external linked content)
    • Completion Time (estimated time for subject to complete activity)
    • Time of Day - This is the suggested time the activity is performed (select from Anytime, Morning, Afternoon, or Evening)
    • Toggle Include Description and/or Deep Link to add rich content to the activity (optional). Click here for more info on this.
  4. Click Create. You'll now see your activity listed on your Course page.

  5. Continue adding more activities OR click Publish in the header to publish your Course.

Note

The order of activities within the Courses screen dictates the order the user sees in their Today tile in LX. The only activity not impacted by reordering is the Motivate activity, which is always placed at the top of the Today tile. Use Course Tools to change activity ordering.

For the fasting and sleep activities, the activity's verbiage autopopulates and includes the duration you set in the parameters. Anything entered into the title for these two activities appears as a second line. For example, if we select the fasting activity, set the duration to 16 hours and leave the title blank, the activity in the Today tile of LX reads "Fast for 16 hours". But if we'd added "Fasting while sleeping counts toward your total fasting hours" in the title field of the activity parameters, it would appear as a separate sentence below "Fast for 16 hours".

Once you've added a title for an activity, the next time you add that activity to your course and begin typing the title name, it autofills the name for convenience.

Autofill

Activities

You can add one or multiple activities to each day to build out your course.

Note

Hovering your cursor within a column presents you with the +Add Activity button. Clicking this presents you with activity options (as shown in the image below).

Activities

The activities listed below are available to include in your course. Those with an * beside it link to external webpages (articles, videos, or other).

Click to Open List of Activities:
  • Complete (survey)
  • Consume (healthy plants) - Autocompletes with data from LX's five pillars
  • Fast (hours) - Ask them to record the previous night's fast. This activity autocompletes with completed fasting data from LX's five pillars
  • Learn* (Lifeology course)
  • Listen* (audio)
  • Measure (biometric)
  • Perform (minutes of exercise) - This does not autocomplete based on wearable data tracked in LX, rather the user simply checks it off when complete. This can also be used as a catchall if the other activity verbs don't meet your needs (such as "Perform task: track the five pillars").
  • Photograph (photo of something)
  • Post (in Circle) - Navigates to the Circle so subjects can interact with members of their circle
  • Practice (minutes of mindfulness) - This activity is user checkable
  • Provide (information) - In the dialog box that opens, select one of the following under Data to Collect:

    • Address - Lets subjects provide a shipping address for any program kits (in the dialog box that opens, choose Address under "Data to Collect")
    • Comments
  • Motivate (quote)

  • Read* (article)
  • Write* (activity sheet)
  • Receive (lab results)
  • Sleep (hours) - Autocompletes with completed sleep data from LX's five pillars
  • Watch* (video)

Some activities can be toggled to add rich content to their activity.

To configure rich content for an activity:

  1. Click the toggle for Include Description.
  2. In the window that opens, provide a description and add the supporting media (by adding a link to an image, audio, or video). This is displayed on the Today tile of LX for that activity.
  3. Toggle on Deep Link and specify the target to link to (optional).

    Click here to open the list of Targets:
    • Applet (applet from LX marketplace):

      • Anxiety Severity Assessment
      • BMR Calculator
      • Balance Assessment

  4. Click Create after setting the parameters.

The difference between using a YouTube URL in a Watch activity type versus including it as a rich content is that the Watch activity YouTube URL launches the LX video player, where the rich content video link plays the video in a small dialog box that shows the Today tile in the background.

Beyond the activity verb and object (Title) that is displayed on the Today tile in the mobile app, an activity with rich content presents a modal to the user when tapped. Text (defined by the description) and image, audio, or video (defined by media url) are visible as well as, optionally, a button (defined by the deep link.) For example, you can deep link to an applet (such as Blood Biomarker Test applet) and then select from a list which applet you want to direct the user.

Deep Link

Some activities already have deep links tying them to pillars. These include: Consume, Fast, Sleep, and Practice.

Course Tools

Course tools make building a program easy. The tools available vary depending on the selected activity. Course tools are accessed by hovering your cursor on the activity until it darkens and displays the tools.

Move Delete Tools

Tools available include:

  • Move - Grab the handle and drag the activity to a new location within the program
  • Duplicate - Creates a copy of an activity which can then be moved to other days or edited.
  • Delete - Removes the activity
  • Edit - Change the parameters of the activity
  • Move to - Click this, then specify the day you wish to move the activity to, click Accept
