      • Description

A description of the course.

      • Certificate text

Text that will be displayed on the certificate that will be awarded when the course is completed and available for download or printing as a PDF.

      • Unsuccessful course message (optional)

This field is optional.  The message that will be displayed if a learner completes the course but does not satisfy the requirements for a “Pass”.

      • Renewal period in month (optional)

This field is optional.  Each course completion will award the learner a competency.  This enables you to specify for how long (in months) the competency will be valid for before there is a requirement to complete a refresher course.  If left blank the competency will remain valid without requiring the learner to complete any additional refresher training.

      • Ordered progression – (Yes or No)

This field is optional.  This field enables you to specify if the course elements must be completed “lock step” in the sequence you have specified (Yes) or if the learner can complete the course elements in any sequence (No).

      • Limited quiz attempts

“No” means that the learner can fail and then re-attempt the quiz without any limit.  “Yes” means that learners will only have a limited number of attempts to pass the quiz before the activity is considered “Completed” as either a Pass or Fail. 

      • Number of attempts

If you selected “Yes” for “Limited quiz attempts” you must specify with a number how many attempts learners can take to try and achieve a Pass for the quiz activity.

      • Author

You cannot edit or change this field.  The Author field displays the name of the organisation that created the course.

      • Promotional image

All courses are required to have a promotional image.  Images should be in landscape orientation with a recommended resolution of 800 x 600.  To add the promotional photo, click on the "Add Photo" link.

  1. To save the course details you must click on the “Save” button displayed at the bottom of the Create a new course Page. If you do not want to save the course, click on the “Cancel” button displayed at the bottom of the Create a new course Page

    • It will have a status of “Draft”
