n WEBSABIZ a course is composed of the following elements:
- Course Title
- Course description
- Topic, Theme or Chapter
- Name of Topic or Chapter
- Summary of the Theme or Chapter
- Exam, quiz
- Final assignment of topic or assignment for the topic
You could do as many chapters as you want. If your course has a conclusion, it should be included as a Theme or Chapter.
All elements are optional and you can include some or all of them in your course.
Within each Lesson you can include Pictures, Videos and Attachments..
We recommend that the name of the course, as well as the description and structure of the course, be defined by you before entering our application. This way the work will be more fluid.
Once you are on your dashboard, to include a new course just click the following button:
Then include the Title that you think best fits your course. Also, describe it in such a way as to attract many students to enroll on it.
Use the editor tools to adjust the text as you wish.
In this section you can set 8 characteristics of your course.
1.- GENERAL SETTINGS:
Here you can set the maximum number of students you want to see your course. It is possible to be part of a bonus or promotion associated with a previous course where it is only seen by the first 50 people who buy that previous course. In case you don’t have it, write the number zero (0) and it will be unlimited. You can also indicate the Level of Difficulty of your course.
2.- CONTENT DRIP:
Here you can enable or disable the sequence of how you want students to progress through the course.
If you decide to enable it you can choose one of the following options:
a) Sequence by date. In this case, you can indicate that each chapter of your course will be enabled after a certain date. For example, you can indicate that Chapter 2 will be available 1 week after the end of Chapter 1.
b) Content available after X days after enrollment.
c) Content available sequentially: here, you will only be able to view the next Topic/Chapter after you have completed the previous one. You will not be able to advance without completing the previous one.
d) Content available after completing a previous course established by you.
3.- DISCUSSION GROUP:
You have the option of enabling a discussion group for your course. When you click on the box presented to you, choose New Discussion Group. We insist that this is optional.
Select the language in which your content will be written. This will serve to filter the courses in each available language later on.
You can choose in which category you want to include your course: Economy, Finance, Health, Entertainment, Crafts, etc. The categories are previously established by Websabiz in the database. If you want to include a new category, send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the title NEW CATEGORY
Place here an image with which you will present your course on the Public Courses page.
You can include an introductory video to the course from various sources: HTML-mp4 (this is a video you have on your computer or in the Websabiz media library), an external URL (address of a video you have posted elsewhere), YouTube, or Vimeo.
The first thing you must include is a Topic using the Add New Topic button. This topic refers to the name of the chapter, division, section, title, section, part, article, episode or whatever you want to call it.
After including the Topic and a summary of it if you wish, you can start including lessons. You cannot include lessons if you have not added a Topic first.
The first thing is to indicate the name of the Lesson.
Then you must include the body of the lesson. You can use the edit menu to adjust the text or include objects. You can include some resource (video, image, audio, link) into the body of the Lesson using the “Add object” button.
You can also include an image that you want to associate with this lesson if you want using the “Upload Featured Image” button.
If you want to associate a video with the lesson, you can do it equally from several sources: HTML-mp4 (this is a video you have on your computer or in the Websabiz media library), an external URL (address of a video you have posted elsewhere), YouTube, or Vimeo. Another resource is to “embed” an interactive video by placing the embed code on it. You can use our Conexiolab application for this purpose.
You can also include an attachment: MS Office documents, pdf, video, sounds, etc, that will not be played in the lesson but are available for the student to download.
