The Course Layout page is the index page of your school, and you need to make sure that it is well written, organized, and pleasant to navigate so users can compare products and purchase the one they desire.
On the Course Layout page, you can describe what your course offers in the market, what skills your user will gain after purchasing it, and demonstrate your course's contents.
After purchase, it is the page where the user sees the course details (title, description, course contents, etc.) and gets directed to the course player to access the course's content.
Course Layout Page
To locate your course’s Layout Page:
1. Go to the Courses menu.
2. Choose the course you wish to customize and navigate to the Layout tab. You can also navigate to the Site Builder → Edit School site, find the course's page in the dropdown list, or visit your Pages Manager.
3. Click on Edit Page.
You can customize your Course Layout page if you Add sections, and if you hover around the elements, you can Add Widgets.
Course Hero Section
After your course content is ready and you are about to launch, it is important to arrange your users' purchase & course navigation flow, so users can purchase the course and navigate to the course player. For this reason, you should add a Course Hero page section on the Course Layout page.
The Course Hero section is available only on the course layout pages of your school because it is dedicated to the respective course, so the section cannot be copied.
Hover over and click on the +Add section between the page sections to add a new section. You can find the Course Hero section under both the For this Course page & the Products section category.
Course Contents Section
Another section you could add to the Course's Layout page to show the contents of your course is the Course Contents section.
Once you visit the Course's Layout page hover over and click on the +Add section to add one of our available Course Contents Sections. It is located under For this Course Page or Products section category.
Before you add the aforementioned Course contents section, you also have the option to fill in the following:
- Section description
- Unit background image
The above two will then reflect on the Course Contents section you will add.
Go to the Courses menu, choose the course you wish to customize, and navigate to the Contents tab. Click on the footstep icon (or the Free/Draft/Paid/Soon button).
In the new window that pops up, locate the Section description field, where you can add a description for the content of your course section. This description will reflect on the Course Contents section, which you can later add to the course's Layout page or any other page.
Once the Course contents section is added, the Section Description you just added will appear.
After adding the Course Contents section on your Course Layout page, you can click on it to make alterations via the Sideform. By clicking on the section's different elements, you can further customize it, hide/show specific elements, select the course's content that you wish to display, etc.
Unit Background Image
You can add a Unit Background Image to any course learning activity. Visit the respective course, locate the learning activity under the Contents tab and click on Settings to add a Unit background image.
After adding the Unit background image, you can go back to the Course Layout page to add a Course Contents section. Note that just a few course content sections take advantage of the aforementioned Unit Background image. It will reflect only in the selected course content sections, shown below:
The Unit background image will appear in the respective course contents section:
- The Section Description added appears in most of the Course Content sections, with only exceptions to the last two available templates.
- The Sections that have been set in Draft and/or Soon status will not reflect on the course contents section you may add.
