Create a Course


EasyCampus provides a Course Wizard to make it easy to create a course for your campus.


Before You Begin


  • Decide upon a title for your new course and jot down a description
  • Determine how many lessons your course will have and jot down your lesson titles
  • Make sure you are logged in to the landing page (home page) of your campus. This is the first page you see when you log in.

Begin


  • Click the Course Wizard option in the Site Administration menu. In a few moments, the first step of the Course Wizard will display.
There are a few ways to access the Course Wizard.
  • In the first field, enter the course title you decided upon earlier.

Example: Introduction to Business

  • If you want, you can enter a Course ID in the second field. In some organizations, this is required.

Example: BUS101

  • In the third field, enter the description you chose for this course.

Example: During this course, managers refresh their knowledge of key business communications.

  • Click the Next>> button to move to the next step of the wizard. Your entries for this step will be stored so you can edit them later if you change your mind.
  • On Step 2, click the name of the template you want to use.

Example: File-Based Course

  • Select a Lesson Format. This will be used to title the lessons you create with the wizard, for example: Week 1, Week 2, Week 3. If none of the options meet your needs, you can enter a custom format, for example, Module. If you select this option, don't add a number as the wizard will do this for you.
  • Enter the number of lessons you need for this course. You can enter no more than 52 lessons.

Note: If you selected the One Page Course template, it’s unnecessary to complete step 8.

  • Click the Next>> button to move to the next step of the wizard.
  • If necessary, you can add to the titles created by the wizard. For example, you can change Week 1 to Week 1 - Introductions. Continue to do this until the lesson titles meet your needs.
  • Click the Next>> button to move to the next step of the wizard.
  • On Step 4, you can choose a theme for your course. Preview the available choices until you find the one that best suits the course.

The theme you choose for your course can be different from the one used by the landing page.

  • Click the Next>> button to move to the final step of the wizard.
  • On the Finish step, take a few moments to carefully review your entries. If you find an entry you want to change, you can use the <<Back button to return to the step in question and make your changes.
  • When you're satisfied with your entries, click the Finish button to create your course. In a few moments, your completed course will display on the screen and you can begin customizing it.
