How to Add/ Edit a Course

Click the next button. Both Tools utilize the same options listed below.

On this page you want to add a course title (required), course description (required) and approximate course length (not required). Once you are finished, click the next button.
4. Add learning objects
Select Learning Objects you want to include in your course by moving them from the left box to the right box. You can also filter the type of learning object, like documents, images, exams, video, SCORM packages, etc.
Adjust Credit/Required options as needed and rearrange order of learning objects if necessary. Number 1 is the first learning object the learner will encounter when taking the course. The highest number is the last learning object the learner will encounter. Once you are finished, click the next button.
5. Designate a course expert
An expert could be someone in your Learning Management System or someone outside that can be contacted with questions relating to the course and the content within the course. If there is no expert, select none.
Once you are finished, click the next button.

Move them from the left box to the right box. Any prerequisite courses added here would need to be completed by the learner prior to accessing this course. If there are no prerequisite courses, leaving the right box blank and click the finish button.
