02003B – How to add Content to your Course

Now that your Course Portal and your first Course have been setup, your next step is to add content to your course.

Creating Course Pages

  • Go to Members Area and then select Online Course in your left sidebar menu.
    Once the Online Courses dashboard opens, click on the Course icon or Content (paper icon) of the course you want to add your content to. 

    • The Course Content pop-up will open.
      At the top of the pop-up, you will find the +Add New Page.
      In the course settings fields, give your course page a name.
      Ensure the Course Page option is selected.
      Click on +Add.
      A new course page slot will appear in the Course Page table.
NB! By default, the Publish Page toggle is set to OFF
Ensure this toggle is set to ON, when you are ready to publish this page.
If publish page is OFF, the course page will not appear in the Navigation bar,
however a member with URL could access the Course page IF they have access to the course.

Course Navigation

Course Content pages have 2 levels i.e. Level 1 and Level 2.

A Page level is determined by the hierarchy (position) of the page in the Course Content pop-up. By default, all Course pages start with level 1 hierarchy.

If you drag-and-drop a page underneath a level 1 page, the new page will get level 2 status and become a sub-menu item in your course’s navigation menu.

  • Level 1 page
  • Level 2 pages

Based on the above image, the course page navigation will look like this.
Also, the current page where the user is viewing will be highlighted as well.
