Create a Course > General information

  • Updated

When creating a course, the following information must be completed:

This article focuses on the General information section.

Title

The title of the course is a required field, which will be included in legal documents, but also in e-mails.

Language

The default language is French. It is possible to choose another language from more than 20 languages available.

Teaching time

Teaching time is the “estimated” time to complete the course. This field is required and must be completed immediately, but it can be edited later if it turns out that your estimate of the teaching time was wrong.

 

Type

Several choices are offered (depending on the pre-configuration):

  • Multi-scope: this is the choice to be made if you want to create course for users who already have a user account on the Internal Platform and/or on one or more Partner Platforms.
  • Public: this choice is only offered if you have activated the Public Catalog in the Configuration.

What is Public Course?

 

Public Course is course intended to be offered to an External Learner, meaning that the learner does not have a user account on the Platform. This can be, and often is, paid course.

 

Principle of access to public course:

 

Once the public course has been created, an access URL can be retrieved and made available to the “audience” deemed to be interested. The potential learner will then be able to access the Platform to view the Public Course (access to the public course description sheet without needing a User account). If the external Learner decides to take the Public course offered, he/she then has to register on the Platform and a User account must be created.

 

  • Anonymous: it is the only type of course that someone can take without having a user account on the Platform (hence the term “anonymous”). Thus, there is no count of the number of licenses for an “anonymous user”.
    ⚠️ The term can be confusing, because “anonymous” course enables the first & last names and e-mail address of the “learner” to be retrieved and even be included in reports on such course. However,

Principle of access to Anonymous course:

 

When creating “anonymous” course, a URL link will be generated and can be shared by the administrator with the external user. The user will have to fill in their first & last names and e-mail address, and will then be able to take the course immediately. In general, this feature is used to send questionnaires and quizzes to people outside the company. Typical example: as part of a recruitment process, it is possible to ask everyone who has applied and sent their CVs to complete a quiz, questionnaire or test, to perform an initial screen of the applicants.

“Anonymous” course is “ephemeral” for anyone who takes it. In fact, if someone returns to the access URL sent for their course after a certain period, the course will no longer be accessible and so, for a quiz or questionnaire, it will not be possible to add to the answers.

From the company’s viewpoint, “Anonymous” course does not appear in the Courses Catalog (nor in the “Public” Catalog). Administrators will be able to access it through the View TCourses Page ( Side Panel > Courses > View).

The company will be able to view the results of Anonymous course in the same way as other course (“multi-scope” or “public” course courses).

⚠️Once the type of the course created (Multi-scope, Public, Anonymous) has been approved, it can no longer be changed. You will need to duplicate the course to be able to change the Course Type.

 

Scopes

Only completed for “multi-scope” course. In this case, it is necessary to specify the Scope over which the course being created will be available, i.e. list all Platforms (internal platform and/or one or more partner platforms) on which the course being created will be published.

 

⚠️ Partner administrators have no choice of types and scopes. They can only publish their course on their partner platform

 

Designers

By default, the designer’s name displayed is the name of the person who creates the course. It is also possible to change the designer or add one or more other designers. The same course can have several designers. Note that, as with administrators, there is no hierarchy among designers, which means that all designers designated for a given course have the authority to edit it simultaneously. This requires a minimum degree of coordination between the different designers of the same course.

 

Image

The ideal image size is 500 x 500 pixels

 

The ideal size is 2000 x 500 pixels.

Default images are offered in the platform, but it is also possible to search for images on the Internet, or to import images from your computer. The image and banner are required fields when creating course, to ensure a consistent visual appearance for users when they access the catalog(s) and/or the list of courses for which they are registered.
