This article will cover frequently asked questions on course creation and publication.
How do I write a good course introduction?
When you are creating your course introduction, there is an optional section to fill in additional information about your course. A good course introduction is an important tool to converting new students to your course.
This article will provide a guide for writing the following sections in your course introduction:
Who is it for
The examples provided in this article is from the perspective of a course on business negotiation.
Your course description is a longer version of the synopsis explaining what a learner will experience in the course. It is helpful to provide a summary of what your course topic is, and what your learners can take away from it.
Your course objectives are what learners should be expected to know/understand by the end of the course.
Who is it for
This section describes the target demographic for your course.
What are the two different types of categories?
When creating your course, you might have encountered two different types of categories to set your course.
Category (Learning Network): You can set this category in the Course Introduction page . Learners use it to discover your course on the Learning Network.
Category (Creator’s Channel): You can set this category after selecting Publish for your course. It organises your courses into groups on your channel page.
Why can’t I directly drag and drop a picture into the course?
You may be encountering this problem when:
Trying to drag and drop a picture from your computer folder to your course creation interface.
Trying to drag and drop a picture from Uploads to your course.
To fix this issue:
Select Layouts, then drag and drop your chosen layout into the course.
Select Uploads, and ensure you have uploaded your file.
Drag and drop your picture into your image layout.
Why can’t I change my published course to Open to All / By Invitation?
Once a course has been published, you will not be able to change its availability (e.g. from Open to All to By Invitation, or vice versa).
If you wish to change your published course’s availability, please follow these steps:
Locate your selected course in the Creator Studio, under Active or Drafts.
Click on the … icon at the top-right corner of the thumbnail of the course.
