Description

HI All,

Adding this ticket following up the commons meeting today. Would it be possible to add a toggle to the search filter in the courses directory to allow users to filter and view only public groups and sites?

Do we want to think about the placement/function of this "view public courses" toggle along site the possible addition of an OER metadata tag and toggle?

Sorry for the late response to this. I took a look and since this is a toggle vs. the various drop down menus we have in our filter UI, I'd recommend to add a simple check box below the line of filters to toggle this feature on/off. It could read something like "Show public courses only"

Thanks for your insight Sonja. This sounds like a good plan to me.

Would the check box be located in the gray filter box or below where the number of sites are listed? I think within the gray filter box might be more obvious.

Yes agreed, they should be part of the grey filter box. I suggest in the line below the other filters.

Thanks all. Agreed that a simple checkbox is fine.

I mocked up putting it in a second line. IMO it becomes confusing - it seems like it's tied to the search box, and it's no longer clear that the 'Filter' and 'Reset' buttons apply to this input.

I tried a second version that involved moving the action buttons to the second row. It's not visually great but it retains the distinction between filters and action buttons.

It's also worth flagging here that my mockups in #14170 suggest making other changes to this filter interface (though perhaps not on the Courses directory) and we risk mucking up an interface that we worked hard to keep clean and easy to understand.

Thanks Boone,
Since the user has to click "filter" after they check the new "public sites" checkbox, it makes more sense to drop the action buttons below the filter options. We might want to add a 1px separator between the action buttons and the filter options so it's clear, see rough adjusted mockup attached.

Looks good to me, I like the 1px line separation.

Thanks, Sonja. Breaking the action buttons into a separate line gives us more flexibility in general, since we'll have more screen real estate to deal with. I'll see what I can do about working up a prototype.
