A complete course creation requires 3 items:

4.1 Course creation

1. Click on ‘Courses’.

2. On Course Page tab , make sure to fill in your details:

  • Course Title
  • Course Short Description
  • Course Categories
  • Featured Image (600pixel x 333 pixel)

*This step is optional for Live Class educators. However, it is advisable to include Lesson titles as learners would prefer to know what’s in the syllabus before joining a class.

Lessons

Lessons are a place for you to start building out your actual course material. You can include text, images, video, audio, PDFs and virtually any other type of third-party or embeddable content.

  • Click ‘New Lesson’, enter a title and click ‘Add Lesson’.
  • Hover to your newly created lesson and click ‘Edit’.
  • On the lesson page tab, start adding your lesson content.
  • Once done, click ‘Submit For Review’.

Topics

If you’ve got a lot of content, you can use topics to create even more hierarchy in your course.

There are a lot of similarities between lessons & topics, but there are a few important distinctions. If you find yourself unsure about the difference between lessons vs. topics, let’s clear things up.

– Lessons are lifted above topics in the course hierarchy.
– You can have a course with only lessons, but you cannot have a course with only topics. Topics can only be added beneath lessons.
– For example, your Lesson could be Basic Korean Grammar. You can have several topics – Korean Prepositions, Korean Particles etc.
