The editor allows you to piece your course together like a puzzle. Add sections to your lesson and easily rearrange the blocks to create your content. Some sections have options for you to customize the look of your course.
On every block you'll see two arrows, an 'X' and in some cases a little gear. Rearrange the blocks using the arrow buttons and delete the block by clicking the 'X'. You can open and close the block's options by clicking on the gear.
Adding New Blocks
There are 2 ways to add a new block: At the bottom of the page you can choose a new block from the list. Or click the '+' sign in between any block to add one right there.
You'll find these blocks on both the lesson editor and the landing page editor. Once you understand how these work, you're well on your way to creating a professional looking e-course.
A rich text editor lets you get creative with your words. You know how this block works, the bulk of your content will probably go in here. Create visual interest by adding multiple text blocks broken up by images.
Theses are specially formatted headings for your text.
Add the image block and choose a file to upload; .png, .jpeg and .gif work best. Once you upload your image, you'll notice you can play with the options by clicking the gear on the right hand side of the block. Here you can add a link and change the alt text.
Make 2 columns with this block and fill them with images or text. There are so many different combinations! Watch the video at the bottom of this list to get some ideas.
Upload a video using the video block. Pretty much any format will work but .mp4 and .m4v are best. Keep in the mind that if you are uploading a very large video it may take several hours to process. Adding a video that has already had been formatted for the web using a video editing program will save you tons of time and bandwidth.
Want to give your participants a worksheet or sample files? Then the downloadable block is what you want! Upload almost any kind of file (like a .pdf or .psd) and allow your participants to download that file. Hit preview and you'll see what your participants will see, a polished little 'download' button where they can get the file.
Add the audio block to add an audio clip to your lesson. Accepted audio formats are .mp3 and .m4a.
This block can be used to write html or markdown. You can also paste an embed code here from a third party (such as a YouTube video or livestream).
Add a form to ask your participants for feedback, submit an assignment or answer quiz questions. You'll be able to create short answer questions, multiple choice questions and ask for file uploads. Read more about forms in detail here.
Sell other products within your course. You'll need to create an add-on first, then you can choose which ones you'd like to sell in your lesson by checking them off.
Landing Page Blocks
Learn how to use the blocks that you'll find on the course description page and make your description awesome!
Frequently asked questions are important to address in your course description. If you answer most of the questions a participant might have, they will feel more confident about enrolling in your course. The FAQ block lets you add a perfectly formatted FAQ section. Add as many questions as you need by clicking the 'add another question' button.
Testimonials from happy customers will show people that your course is amazing and worth bragging about. The testimonial block has space for a quote and the name of the person who said it. It's a simple as that! Use the 'add another testimonial' button to keeping adding quotes from adoring fans.
3. Table of Contents
A table of contents can tell your participants a lot about the course like what topics you'll cover and how long the course will take them to complete. The only option on this block is the option to show the names of unpublished lessons in the list. This is up to you and depends on the type of course you're running. Hit preview to see the difference.
4. Signup Button
Signup buttons on your landing page do double duty. Before your course is open they can be used to capture leads. After your course is open they switch to being signup buttons. It all happens automatically so you don't have to re-work your landing page much after your course opens. Promotion doesn't have to start when your course opens, you can start anytime! Set up your landing page to tell people about your course and ask them to enter their email address to get notified when it starts. This is also great for courses that open on a specific date. You can build a list of people who have shown interest in your course, then send an email (and maybe a special promo code) when your course opens!
