Note: All of the content that you define using the Course Builder (except for what you set in the Course Builder section which includes, lessons, quizzes, assignments, and attachments) will be displayed on the Course Details Page.

Setting Up The Fundamentals – Course Info

Course Info section which helps you set up the fundamental settings of a course. Here, write down the course name in the Course Title field and define a meaningful slug in the Course Slug field for its URL. Note that the slug is the website link your Course will take, after you publish it. (Sample is ““. The bold underlined path is what is called SLUG). Then, use the Course Description field to add a detailed summary with the help of rich text formatting.

Course Settings

Next, from the Course Settings panel, you can define the Maximum no. of Students allowed to enroll and the Difficulty Level from options such as All Level, Beginner, Intermediate, and Expert. You’ll also be able to make your course a Public Course i.e. make it accessible without enrollment and also enable the  feature from here.

Choose Course Category and Thumbnail

For a better learner experience, you should define the Category for your course as well as choose if your Course is free or paid.


Next, you will have to upload a nice Course thumbnail. Please be advised that the supported file types for this thumbnail image are jpg, .jpeg, gif, or .png. We recommend you to use a 700×430 px sized image as the thumbnail.

Course  Feature Video

Apart from the Course Thumbnail, you can also upload a feature Video to serve as the course intro. From the Video section, you have the option to select from various video sources such as:

HTML 5 (mp4)
External URL
If you upload a .mp4 file using the HTML 5 option you can upload an image as its video thumbnail.

Course Essentials Builder 

The Course Essentials section is the core setting of course design. From here you can create Course Topics, and then add the following for each topic, you have added.

  1. Lessons
  2. Quizzes
  3. Assignments
  4. and more.

Note: You will need to add a topic, before you can add lessons, quizzes etc on the topic.

You consider the Course as a textbook, then the topics are like the chapters. So in order to create a lesson, assignment, or quiz, you need to create a chapter first i.e a topic. Once a topic is created, you can create multiple lessons/quizzes/assignments.

Adding Instructors

You also have the privilege to assign more than one instructor to your course. To assign an instructor to your course simply click on Add Instructor option and search for them by name. Note, that the user to be added must be an instructor on our platform.

Course Attachments

From the Upload Attachments section, you can upload multiple files (that are supported, like articles in pdf format, graphics illustrations, power point presentations, video lesson etc) to any of your courses that you want to share with your students, who enroll in your course, from the Course Attachments section.

Course Additional Data

In the Additional Data section, you can write down the highlights of your course and other additional info using the fields:

  • What Will I Learn? – this is list of what you will cover in your course, which the students will learn
  • Targeted Audience – who is your course made for; beginner, intermediate, or expert level; youth or adult?
  • Total Course Duration – define duration you feel students will spend on starting & completing the course
  • Materials Included – list the items the students will have access to in your course (e.g 30hours on-demand video, 8 exercises (assignments), 22 articles (links or pdfs), 10 downloadable resources (zipped files), Access on mobile and TV, Full lifetime access, Certificate of completion)
  • Requirements/Instructions – write here any requirements for your course (e.g A basic understanding of HTML and CSS is a plus etc)

Course Tag

This field basically allows you to let your students know what they can expect from the course. Also, keep in mind that you should list only one point per line in all of these fields. (e.g if you are creating a course on Graphics, your Tags can be: Photoshop, CorelDraw, Adobe Illustrator etc

Course Prerequisites

If your course is designed for intermediate or advanced-level learners, you’d want to make your students have the basics to adopt the course. By defining the Course Prerequisites you can ensure that those will have to be completed first before starting this particular course.

Course Certificate Template

You are expected to choose from the few options of Certificate templates, which your students will be awarded after completing your course.

Please select the template circled in the above image.

Course Editor Controls

Once you are done adding all the lessons, quizzes, assignments, and other course details, you can either save it as a Draft or click on Publish to send it for approval right away, from the options in the top bar. When the review is done, your course will be published automatically.


You can also Preview the Course from the top bar to see what the final Course Details Page will look like before saving or publishing. Another thing to note is that, our course builder will be automatically saving your edits every 30 seconds, so you don’t need to worry about losing your saved data.

Hint: We strongly advise that you should always save your course as draft, when you have yet to add all course materials, contents, quizzes, etc Published course will automatically be displayed to students, maybe you have completed it or not.

That’s all.
