Creating a course inside Workleap LMS is easy! Just follow these few steps and you will be up and ready in no time.
Creating a course
Under the "Content section", open the "Manage Courses" tab, then click on "Create New Course".
Workleap LMS offers you the possibility between 2 different types of courses:
Online courses are always available on your platform.
They can be self-paced courses, live webinars or a combination of both.
This is the most simple and straightforward educational strategy. Although it is necessary that your contents and medias are created in advance, each course is autonomous and self-sufficient once published.
You can also add live video streams to your online courses. This approach is the best of both worlds. You have the benefits of a « traditional » online course, with the perks of a live webinar broadcast.
Going beyond the standard offer of web trainings, Workleap LMS empowers its customers with the ability to centralize their online and in-person courses under a single system.
In-person courses have the same options offered through online courses while and also allowing for in real-life session registrations.
Let's go through each of the sections of the course creation process
This section shows all the fields presented to your students before they register to your course.
Under this tab, you will be able to enter all the general information related to your course
Among other things, you can preview the appearance of your certificate by clicking on the designated section.
The information in this section is intended to convince your user that your training meets their needs.
The Pro and Enterprise plans offer the possibility to create different versions of one course.
The course versions feature allows you to create different versions of a single course, according to different contexts.
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.
This is where the magic happens and you get to create your course plan.
You can first choose the learning approach that suits best the intent of your course:
Linear Progression: Students will need to complete each lesson before gaining access to the next one. Once completed, each lesson will be accessible for your students to revisit in the desired order of their choice.
Non-Linear Progression: Students will be able to browse through lessons in the order they prefer.
If you have the Standard, Pro or Enterprise plan, drip content allows you to delay the access between lessons and/or modules.
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.
Once your structure is saved, click on the Edit content button, to the right side of each lesson to integrate the appropriate content.
Access and pricing
The access and pricing section allows you to configure the selling price of your course. You will also be able to assign your course to different subscription plans, should you create any on your platform.
If you benefit from the advanced features included in our Professional or Enterprise plan, you will be able to choose between different course access formats: public courses, courses available by enrollment request and private course available by manual enrolment only.

Courses available by enrolment request will be visible on your platform, but with restricted access. The platform administrator will receive an access request notification to approve or reject every request initiated by members.
Private course available by manual enrolment only will not be listed on your platform. The administrator will have to manually enrol each participant so that they can access the content.
This section allows you to assign different categories to a training. Categories have a major impact on the customer experience since they act as search filters on your platform.
