How to Customize the Course Layout Page - Course Contents Section

On the Course Layout page, you can describe what your course has to offer in the market, what skills your user will gain after purchasing it, and demonstrate your course's contents.

Like in every page's structure in your course Layout page you can Add sections and if you hover around the elements you can Add Widgets.

Layout page 

In order to find 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.

3. Click on  Edit Page.

You can also find your course layout page if you go to the Site Builder → Edit School site, find the course's page in the top-left drop-down list or visit your Pages Manager.

How to add a Course Content Section

Once you visit the course's Layout page click on the +Add section to add one of our available Course Contents Sections, under For this Course Page or Products option.

Before you add the aforementioned Course contents section you can visit the learning activities and fill in the:

A. Section description 

B. Unit background image

Note: Adding the Section description and Unit background image is optional. 

A. Section Description

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.

B. 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 you have added 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 the majority of the 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.

Once the Course contents section is added, the Section Description you earlier added will appear. 

  • After adding the course contents section on your course layout page, you may want to make alterations to the section's general settings, actions, and layout settings in the Sideform. By clicking on the section's different elements, you can further customize it, hide/show specific elements, select the courses that you wish to display, etc.
