Manage Experience Types and Terms

This page applies to Compact2Learn institutional administrators.

Overview of Experience Types

Experience Types include the name and category of service experiences that students select from.

Add Experience Types

  1. Click Training.
  2. Click Experience Types.
  3. Click Add an Experience Type.
  4. Enter the new experience name.
  5. Under Experience Type, select all activities that best match this experience type.
  6. Under Course, select a course that best matches this experience type.
  7. Under Curricular or Co-curricular, select the curriculum that best matches this experience type.
  8. Under Forms, select the forms and evaluations that students can send from their accounts. Note that you must create online forms and evaluations first before selecting them here. Once you select a form, it is activated and students can initiate the workflow on their own or when instructed. If you do not select a form when adding experience types, you can still send it to your students using the Submissions tab under Forms. See Course Forms under Online Forms and Evaluations for more information.
  9. Click Save.

Deactivate Experience Types

If your program no longer supports experience types, you can mark them as inactive. This does not affect any experiences or activities previously logged by your students but does prevent students from selecting the experience type for new experiences and activities.

  1. Click Training.
  2. Click Experience Types.
  3. Use the filter options to narrow your results, if needed.
  4. Under the Name column, click the experience type name.
  5. Under the Status drop-down, select Inactive.
  6. Click Save.
