A "course" is the conduit the LMS uses for delivering instruction and tracking user progress and achievement. While a lot of attention is given to crafting the instructional activities contained within a course, one must first consider how course shells are created, configured and managed in the first place! This session will address how to create and manage courses both manually and in bulk as well as demonstrate strategies for using template courses. In addition, we'll provide an overview of the configuration settings available for courses.
You’ve invested time and effort to create a robust collection of courses in your LMS. The next step is to ensure that user accounts are available and positioned in the system so learners can access those courses! This session will address the various means of creating and managing user accounts - manually, in bulk, and via automations - as well as the processes available for enrolling those user accounts into courses.
