Creating a course in Easygenerator is a five-step process. When you create a course in Easygenerator the course editor will guide you through the entire process. All changes are automatically saved. You can preview your course from any step of the course editor. You will be able to see the course just as it would be presented to your learners.
In this video we will show you how to start building a course using our new super-easy course editor.
Under the Courses menu item click New course and choose either to create a new course from scratch or create a course based on one of the available examples.
If you decide to use an example course, you can customize its content, images, look & feel, and create your own awesome course with ease. Here is a short video guide for you.
When you create a new course from scratch, it is obligatory to choose a template. The course template can be changed any moment. To choose the template that fits your course best, select the template and preview your course.
To create a course, you need to follow these steps:
Step 1: Create. Enter the course title and add course introduction. When a learner launches the course, the course introduction page is shown first. The content that can be added to the course introduction page is not limited. You can add text, images, embed video and audio files.
Create sections with content and question items by dragging and dropping them from the list on the left to the central area of the screen.
NOTE: You can change the order of sections and content/question items simply by dragging and dropping them to a new place. The sections/learning objectives with content/question items are shown to a learner in the order set in the course editor.
Step 2: Design. On the Design step you can create themes (only in the Simple course template), adjust branding and layout of your course.
NOTE: Custom course logo and course background are paid features. To be able to use these features you need to upgrade your account to one of the paid Easygenerator editions.
Step 3: Configure. On this step you can set up different course settings, like results tracking, language, PDF exporting etc. Depending on the selected course template the availability of some settings may differ.
Step 4: Publish. When the course is created and configured you can publish it on the Publish step. Easygenerator provides a few options on how a course can be published:
- sharing a private link,
- publishing inside a website,
- selling a course via Coggno,
- publishing to your LMS,
- publishing to your hosting.
When the course is published you can update it anytime and download the updated package.
NOTE: It is also possible to share a private link or generate the embed code from any step of the course editor by clicking Share at the top of the course editor.
Step 5: Results. On this step of the course editor you can see your learners’ results per section and question if results tracking and reporting to Easygenerator is enabled.
