Setup a course from scratch
If you're creating a new course, you'd have to set it up from scratch. Here are the steps you have to follow:
Step 1 - Create course
Step 2 - Setup metadata
Your course information is very important. It is a make-or-break moment for a student who is considering enrolling in your course. Best practices here:
- Make sure your course title is crisp
- Make sure your course description is lengthy and includes everything in detail that is the course outcome. What will the student learn? What will they become? What dream skills they unlock after going through your course?
Your curriculum designer is the place where you will spend your most time. It is a powerful way to organize your course and break it down into multiple sections. We recommend every section to contain:
- An introduction to section video.
- Interactive elements like lab quizzes or standalone labs with videos.
- Standalone videos for describing theoretical concepts.
- A final article/video concluding the section.
