A “skill” describes a specific knowledge or experience that is either offered by a course (meaning that students who complete the course “get” that skill) or “required” by a course (meaning that students need to have that skill, perhaps by completing another course offering it, in order to take a course).

The Skills sections shows you a listing of all skills, along with the category each skill belongs to and the number of users that possess it, and has buttons to add a new skill, or edit or delete an existing one.

The listing of skills can be filtered, to quickly find the one you want to view / edit, and it can also be downloaded as an Excel-compatible CSV file.

To add a new skill, click the “Add Skill” button and enter a name and category the skill belongs to, as well as an optional description and branch to which it would be constrained.
