Step 4: Upload Course Content

Once you've clarified what your course is about, go the "syllabus" tab to start building your course plan.

  • Add Modules: Divide your course into logical sections (e.g., Introduction, Module 1, Module 2, etc.) in order to build a course outline. Each module should support a specific course objective.

  • Add lessons in each modules: For each module, add lessons for each talking point you need to cover. Use the right lesson type, according to the learning asset you plan to leverage.

  • Upload Content: Within each lesson, upload your course materials, which may include videos, presentations, documents, quizzes, images, audios, texts, etc.

  • Add Attachments (optional): If applicable, you can import attachments in each lesson to better support your content. Those attachments will be downloadable for users.

Step 5: Configure Course Completion Criteria

  • Completion certificate: Confirm if you want a certificate to be automatically generated and sent to users upon completion.

  • Requalification: Enable, if of interest, requalification cycles to that users are automatically requested to redo the course upon a certain validity period

  • Course Completion Reminders: Set up to 5 automated course completion reminders per course to ensure people are compliant with their training expectations

Step 6: Set Course Settings

  • Access level: Choose whether the course will be visible to all users, restricted to specific groups or individuals, or only available upon manual enrollments

  • Design: Add images to increase the appeal of your course on the directory

  • Categorization: Assign the proper course categories so that users can easily trace back the course at a later moment through the course directory.

Step 7: Preview and Publish

  • Preview: Review the course structure, content, and settings to ensure everything looks as intended.

  • Publish: Once satisfied, publish the course to make it available to learners.

Step 8: Monitor Course Progress

  • Analytics: Use WorkLeap LMS analytics tools to track learner progress, engagement, and completion rates.

  • Feedback: Gather feedback from learners to continuously improve the course content and delivery.

Creating a course in WorkLeap LMS is a straightforward process that involves setting up course details, uploading content, configuring settings, and publishing for learners to access.

"Enrollments" Tab

This section showcases an overview of all the information regarding the progress of the students enrolled for a specific course.

This screen informs you on:

  • The enrolment date

  • The progression

  • The states of completion

By clicking on the progress bar of an enrollment, you will be redirected to the enrollment details page of a specific user.

You can also disenroll a user at any given time by clicking on the dedicated button on the right.

The information provided in this section is exportable under CSV and XLSX files.

"Reviews" tab

User reviews are centralized under this tab to simplify continuous improvement and give a high level view of the satisfaction rate of the users who have completed the course.

The specific notes and feedbacks are not made public and are only displayed to users with the proper level of permission on Workleap LMS.

Advanced: Course Versions

The course versions feature allows you to create different versions of a single course, according to different contexts. All versions are related to the same course title, objectives, duration and settings.

It’s important to know that a student enrolled in a version of your course will not be able to use other versions of your course.

Advanced: Drip Content

Our "drip content" feature allows you to delay the access between lessons and/or modules through time.

By dragging the lessons/modules in the order you want, you can set up your course structure. It is important to include the lesson titles and save before adding content.
