Can I assign decks to more than one topic?

Decks can only be present once in the library. You can still display the same content more than once.

Decks and also exams or events can only be assigned once in the library to exactly one topic.

Nevertheless, two different methods are available to make decks available multiple times:

  • Duplicate decks

  • Assign decks to multiple contentpackages

Duplicate Decks

If you want your deck to appear in several topics, you have the option of duplicating decks including their cards.

Duplicating decks offers the following advantages:

  • Duplicated decks can be assigned to another topic in the library.

  • Decks can differ minimally in different topics for different target groups. With duplicated decks, you can change the deviating content in the co-duplicated cards.

  • Duplicated decks can be used, among other things, to display the content in a different language.

How to duplicate a deck can be found in the article How can decks and assessments be duplicated in ovos play?

Assigning Decks to Multiple Content Packages

If the decks appear in several topics in your application in order to be visible to different target groups, we recommend that you work with content packages and groups.

With content packages, you can assign the learning content and decks to different groups and thus make them visible. ovos play only displays topics and decks if users have also assigned the matching content package. This means you do not have to create duplicate topics, but can continue to use the same topic.

The following advantages are offered by assigning decks to content packages:

  • Changed contents in decks are updated for all target groups.

  • If the content should also be visible for a new/other group, you can assign this with one click.

  • The library remains clear for you in the administration.

How to assign decks to content packages and groups can be found in our tutorial video:
