Step 2: Create Title and Summary

Create a title that will interest Trekkers in knowing more about your Navitent. Create a summary to describe the content of the Navitent. The title link on every Navitent will take the Trekker to the Details page to learn more about your Navitent before they add it to their library, schedule or do it.

Step 7

Step 7: Customize Page

Does your Navitent have custom images, documents or videos associated with it? Add them here (remember you can add more step specific documents and videos using Elements).

Does your Navitent have Navitents that are related to it or that you reference within it? Add them using Related Navitents so your Trekkers can access them easily.

On this page you can also add Environments, Assessments and Science (Variables, Attributes and Hypotheses).

Assessments are surveys or tests to check the condition or change of the Attributes of a Navitent. Assessments can be Trails or Sessions that have been designated as Assessments in the Navitent Type.

Improve how Trekkers find your Navitents and understand what they do and how they work by including Science (Variables, Attributes and Hypotheses).

Variables are the things that your Navitent uses to change the specific Attributes.

Attributes are the things being changed by your Navitent.

Hypotheses are the specific changes that make the Navitent effective in its role in achieving the goal.

The last step is to set up your Publishing Preferences and you are done.
