Adding / Editing Courses

Courses function like a "class" within a Module and allow you to separate lengthy learning materials into smaller, more digestible groups of information. Courses can be managed through the Learning Management System (LMS) Modules Administration page,

Note: Every Course  must contain at least one Chapter, which must contain at least one Activity. While you must have at least one Course, Chapter and Activity in your Module, you may create as many as you need.

To access the LMS Modules Administration page, click the drop-down menu on the left and select  Portal Administration (Fig. 1).

In Edit mode, you can:

  • Add or update a Course Image, to give a visual representation of the purpose of the Course. To add an image click Use Image (Fig. 6), then either drag and drop into the space provided, or click Add A File and select the desired image. When finished, click OK. If you choose to use an icon and gradient background, select Use Icon/Gradient (Fig. 6) and select your Degrees of Gradient, Start Color, End Color and Icon, then click Save.
    • For images, we recommend a minimum resolution of 1080px by 360px. Images can be larger or smaller but should stay true to a 3:1 aspect ratio as this is how they will be displayed on the card itself. Upon uploading an image in the editor you will be able to crop the image to your liking with our built-in cropper. The cropper area has a fixed aspect ratio of 3:1 that will help you in positioning your image so that it appears correctly on the card.
  • Note: Course images are optional and can be enabled by selecting the  allow courses in this module to have images box on the Module edit page. Visit Adding/Editing Modules for more information.

  • Type the Course Title into the bar provided to name the Course.
  • Provide the Course Subtitle by typing your subtitle into the bar provided.
  • Add a Description. Adding a description is optional. The Description can include Rich Text, which allows for bulleted or numbered lists (just click on the appropriate icon above the text bar). You may also include Bold, Italic, Underlined or Linked text in the Description.
  • Determine if you would like the Chapters in this module to have Chapter images. Similar to Module and Course images, Chapter images are displayed when viewing your list of Chapters in card view. Chapter images are optional. If you would like to have Chapter images, check the allow chapters in this course to have images box. 
  • Click Save to save the Course.
  • Click Unpublish to unpublish this course. If you Unpublish a course, the course will remain in the system, but it cannot be viewed until you Publish it. To permanently delete a course, click Delete.
