The LearnWorlds course player is a place where students will feel like being in a classroom, watching all the learning material unfold and change right before their eyes. They can engage in discussions throughout the learning process, raise questions, answer tests and exams, and much more… 

How to access the Course player

Finding the Course player is a piece of cake for administrators and even easier for learners!

As an administrator, all you have to do is first get to the course you want to view in the course player. There you can either click on the "Preview course player" magnifying glass on your authoring top bar.

...or select to directly preview a particular learning unit in the course player by clicking on the Preview button right next to it.

From the perspective of a learner, your students will simply either have to click on the relevant learning unit they wish to preview in a given course or click on “Continue” to be redirected into the course player. Doing that, they will continue straight from the last learning unit they have visited.

How to navigate through the Course Player

Once inside the course player, you will be able to distinguish two separate parts of the player on your screen:

a The left-side control panel which holds all the buttons, levers, and hinges you will need to navigate through the course content.

b The right-side unit display area, where each learning unit selected is displayed.

Now, let’s get a closer look at the buttons and options offered in the left side control panel:
