How do I create a course?
You can create a course in your learning management system in a few simple steps. Note, however, that only Organization accounts have access to the course creation page:
- Login with your Organization account. Go to your Dashboard > Manage Courses > Courses menu on the left side of the screen. Click the New Course button to create one, then give it a name and description by filling in the boxes, finally add a Teacher and click Save.
The main components of a course are lessons, lesson sections , schedules and participants.
- Once the you have created your course you can click on the Lessons tab and fill in the rest of the details you need for your sessions. Here you can add additional components, such as quizzes, classrooms or assignments and then save the changes. There are four types of sections you can add to each lesson:
“Empty” – Creates an empty section, where you can attach files, such as reading material, pictures, etc.;
“Virtual Classroom” – Creates a Virtual Classroom session, which you can assign a date and time for;
“Traditional Classroom” – Adds a traditional classroom session, which you can also put in a date and time for;
Assignment/Homework – As with the empty section, you can assign files and quizzes here. However, the difference is that you can specify a time frame for your students to complete the assignment.
- Go to the Schedules tab to create а time-frame for each session/lesson you wish to include in the Course.
Note that in order to finalize the process of creating a full course with all its above mentioned components you will need to add it to a package. To do so, go to “Packages” from the menu on your left and create one by clicking on the New Package button. Click on the “Courses and Singles Lessons” tab to drag and drop the course to the package box.
