What's a Course?
A course is a collection of two or more content modules. The pieces of content that comprise the course should concern the same topic and be ordered logically.
Here is an example of how a typical course looks:
A few key elements to remember:
- Content modules that are part of a course are clearly marked with a grey band (see above)
- On the "Discover feed" courses will appear as a single content block, not as separate modules
- On the "Channel feed", courses will appear at the same level of streams
How to create a Course
To create a course, click on the ‘My content’ button, then click on the ‘Create Course’ button. This will open the course creation tool. Start with writing a title.
After the title, content can be added to the course by using the search bar to seek existing pieces of content and by clicking on them to add them to the course. At any time, the order of content within the course may be altered, by dragging and dropping pieces of content to their intended positions. Content pieces may also be removed from the course at any time.
Please note that, to add a content module to a course, you must be the owner of that content. If you'd like to create new content modules for the course, then they have to be created first using the content creation tool.
Once you're happy with the course you've created, it can be submitted by clicking on the blue ‘Submit’ button at the top right-hand corner of the screen and by selecting the channel into which the course is to be published.
