EDITING EXISTING COURSE ELEMENTS

To modify an existing course element, click Courses from the navigation, and then click on the title of the course that contains the elements you wish to edit. Hover over the element and a ‘pencil’ icon will appear. Click this icon to open the page that allows for the editing of the element. The fields on the proceeding page allow you to change the title, description, and the settings assigned to the selected lesson.

PREVIEW CONTENT AS A STUDENT

To preview content as a student would see it, click Courses from the navigation, and then click on the title of the course that contains the elements you wish to preview. Hover over the element and an ‘eye’ icon (preview icon) will appear. Click this icon to open the page that allows for the previewing of the element as a student would view it.

DELETE A COURSE ELEMENT

To delete a course element, click Courses from the navigation, and then click on the title of the course that contains the elements you wish to delete. Hover over the element and a ‘trash’ icon (remove icon) will appear. Click this icon to open the page confirms the deletion of the element. Click Yes to continue.

VIDEO ELEMENT SETTINGS

The following options are available for course elements that are of the ‘video’ type:
  • Title – Change the title of the video
  • Description – Enter a description for the video.
  • Allow Fast Forward – When this is set to ‘Yes,’ the student is allowed to skip through the video at their own pace, or re-watch parts on their own accord. When set to ‘No,’ the student is not allowed to skip through the timeline on the video.
  • Choose Page Layout – There are three layouts available for a video: top-aligned video, left-aligned video, or bottom-aligned video. Choose the radio button above each option to select it, and then click Update to save the settings.
