What Is the Freshness Filter?

The freshness filter sorts lessons by the amount of engagement they receive. Each lesson is given a score from 0 to 100, with 100 denoting maximum freshness. Lessons that are updated frequently and often taken by learners will have a higher freshness score than ones that aren't. The freshness filter is useful when auditing content; it may help you identify lessons that need to be updated.

πŸ’‘ Important Note: Only lessons are rated for freshness.


What Constitutes Freshness?

Freshness is based on two factors:

  • the last time a lesson was edited, and

  • the last time learner progress was recorded

New lessons are automatically awarded a score of 100. This score won't begin to degrade until 60 days from the time a lesson is created, regardless of engagement activity.


How Freshness Is Calculated

Each of the two factors is worth up to 50 points for a total of 100 points, with 100 denoting maximum freshness. Points are awarded according to the last time a lesson was edited or engaged.

  • If a lesson is 60 days old or younger, it's considered fresh in both categories and given a score of 100.

  • If a lesson is older than 60 days but younger than 180 days, it will receive a score proportional to its age and usage frequency.

  • If 180 days or more have elapsed without a lesson being updated or used, the lesson is considered stale and given a score of 0 points.

Freshness is calculated each morning.


Filtering by Content Freshness

The freshness filter is one of four filters than can be applied to lessons in your account. Once the filter has been applied, the content table will refresh to display freshness scores in the rightmost column. By default, lessons are sorted in descending order of freshness. To change this, select the arrow in the column header.


​

To disable the freshness filter, select the button that reads Clear Filters. The default view will be restored.
