Course screen

The course screen (shown after you right click and select “Edit Course” on any of the courses you own) includes a variety of tools to manage your courses.

From the “Properties” tab you can change the course’s settings, such as name, avatar, category, type and description. There are more options that can be set for a course if you click to open the “Advanced Settings”, such as its price (if you want it to be a paid course), whether the course will offer a certification to those who have completed it (as well as the certification’s duration), the intended audience and language, and the branch (department) that offers it. A course code can also be set to help users quickly and uniquely identify the course.

Course properties

The Lessons tab displays a listing of the lessons contained in the course, and allows the user to create new lessons assigned to the course, set the lesson order and configure whether or not the students have to complete lessons in order (“Serial rule enabled/disabled”). The lesson list can be downloaded as an Excel-compatible CSV file.

Adding lessons to course

The Users tab displays a listing of the users associated in the course, as either Professors or Students and their registration date. For each student, the Users listing also displays his course completion date, what his score was and whether he was awarded a certificate. This information can be downloaded as an Excel-compatible CSV file.

Adding users to course

Finally, the Skills tab shows a listing of skills associated with the selected course. A “skill” describes a specific knowledge or experience that is either “Offered” by the course (meaning that students who complete the course are assigned that skill) or “Required” by the course (meaning that students need to have that skill, perhaps by completing another course offering it, in order to take the course). The listing of skills can be downloaded as an Excel-compatible CSV file.
