How to Create a Course

An online course allows you to share knowledge and reach a global audience, making education accessible and flexible. LearnWorlds simplifies the process, enabling you to create, organize, and customize your course content effortlessly.

In this article, we will explore how to create an online course in LearnWorlds and begin setting up the course outline

Create a Course

You can create a new course in LearnWorlds:

  1. From the main admin dashboard, by clicking on Create course.
  2. By navigating to Courses  Course Manager and clicking on Create course.

You will be redirected to the Course Creation Wizard, a user-friendly tool that simplifies the course creation process in just a few steps for any of the aforementioned choices. 

Course Creation Wizard

To set up your course, follow these steps in the course creation wizard:

1. Add the name of the course, a description, and a cover image. The description and cover image are optional. 2. Set up the course public URL. The course title will be added by default, but you can edit it if needed.3. Select the Course access. You can choose whether the course will be draft, free, paid, private, or coming soon. These settings can be changed later. 

LearnWorlds provides six access options for your courses:

Paid Paid courses are accessible to those who purchase them or are manually enrolled.
Draft Draft courses remain unpublished and invisible while under development. This mode allows you to work at your own pace, gradually adding content. Users cannot see or purchase these courses until they are published.
Coming Soon Coming Soon courses are visible to users, but they cannot enroll in or purchase them. This generates anticipation among your users for your upcoming course.
Enrollment Closed Enrollment-closed courses remain visible in catalogs and on course layout pages, but enrollment is not allowed. This feature is useful for limiting course participation. Users cannot purchase these courses; manual enrollment is required. Existing users retain access to the course content.
Free By offering free courses, registered users can access and become familiar with your content, increasing the likelihood that they will purchase one of your premium courses.
Private Private Courses are accessible only to those who have been manually enrolled in them. Since private courses are not published, they are not listed in course catalogs, so users cannot locate them.

4. Set the price. You can also choose to offer your course at a reduced rate to entice potential users (only if you choose a paid course).

5. Pick a page template. You can either stick with the default theme layout for your course page or choose a layout used in another course.

Set up the course outline

Once your online course is created, you can start customizing the course outline

a. From scratch, by adding a new empty section which you will populate with the activities of your choice.

b. Import and sync existing content; you can find more information about this here.

c. Utilize our AI assistant to create your course outline
