Cogs stands for concepts, outcomes, goals, and skills. Cogs play an important role in Unrulr. Every post in Unrulr is tagged with one or more cogs. Available cogs for each group/class are set up by the group organizer.
Cogs are used for:
- Bringing intention to posts-- because all posts require at least one cogs, the poster is required to think about the relevance of the post to the purpose of the group.
- Filtering posts--
- When viewing a feed, a user might want to see only posts tagged with a certain cog. See Filter posts by cog.
- When creating a Journey post, a user might want to focus the Journey on a particular cog or set of cogs. See Create a learning Journey.
- Assessment-- teachers/mentors and peers can assess cogs on each post. See How does assessment work in Unrulr?
Related cogs are grouped together in a cog set. Cogs are assigned to a group/class as part of a cog set.
To assign a cog set to a group/class you organize, see How do I add cogs to my group/class?
To create a cog set, see How do I create my own cogs?
