A new multifaceted course homepage

Sina Burghardt · Product News · 3 weeks ago

The new course homepage gives you and your participants a thorough overview of the e-learning course. It now consolidates multiple screens into a (visually) single page with tabs. These tabs include About, the Table of content, the course Glossary, Discussions, the Course Calendar, Members, as well as Enrollment, Welcome and Thank you pages.

With the new layout, we are looking to improve a more natural flow from enrolling, commencing, proceeding, and completing the course. This enhances the learning experience for all course participants. In addition, the course About page is now easily accessible to learners again.

That’s new

With the new layout of the course homepage, there also comes a change regarding the course menu. Instead of replacing the academy menu in the top menu bar, there is now a new “Settings” dropdown on the course homepage. Please note that these changes also apply to course programs.

How to customize your course homepage

course homepage setup

The appearance of tabs on the course homepage depends on which navigation items you choose to be shown in the course menu. Unticking a box results in less tabs on the course homepage.

Under Settings > Name and Descriptions, you can adjust more details regarding the layout of your course homepage. Choose an image and banner here, that will be shown not only on course widget in the academy library, but also on your course homepage. The description that you enter here and can be enriched with additional pictures among others, is what will later on be shown on the About page of your course.

Whether the enroll button will be shown or not depends on the setting you choose regarding course enrollment.
