How to create a course using already uploaded contents?

This article covers the steps to add course content directly from the Asset Library.

Creating your first course is an essential step towards your success. This article simplifies the course creation process. It also guides you to build and organize content to offer to your users.

Log in to your institution panel and set up a course. Once the course is set up, click on Course Builder icon to open "Course Builder". Course Builder allows you to create course by uploading content in simple and easy steps.

 

In the Course Builder landing page, click on “Add First Chapter” or “Add New Chapter”. 

 

 

A new set of options would pop-up enabling you to select your preferred form of uploading content. 

 

Upload New Item

This option allows you to directly import files from your computer and upload as the course content.

Create new Item

This option allows you to create content for the course on the spot.

Choose from Asset Library

An asset library is your personalized library consisting of all the course materials uploaded by your institution. Here, you can choose any document which is uploaded at any time previously in your institution panel and add them in your current course.

Choose from Asset Library 

Click on "Choose from Asset Library" to add previously uploaded items to this course.

 

 

You will be redirected to the Asset Library. The library would consist of all the kinds of course material you have ever created or uploaded previously in course builder.

Let's understand the Asset Library landing page sections in detail.

No. Of Items

In the topmost corner just beside Asset Library, a number is written inside the brackets. That number denotes the total no. of items present in the Asset Library.
Example: As highlighted below, "Asset Library (28)" denotes that there are a total of 28 items in the Asset Library.

 

Add Filters

This section is placed right below the Asset Library (No. of Items). You can apply multiple search filters here to narrow down the course item results in the asset library.
This section proves to be of the utmost importance especially when the no. of items are high.

Example: If you are looking for a video which was uploaded recently, you can scroll through all the pages to find it. But, that seems to be a time-consuming task, especially when there are multiple pages.
Therefore, you can apply the "created date" as well as the "video type" filter. Asset library listing will narrow down and you will be able to identify the video immediately. 

 

 

Created Date: You can narrow down the Asset Library items on the basis of the day they were created. There are four ways of using "Created Date" filter.
"After" option is used when you want the items to be shown which was created after a certain date.
"Before" option is used when you want the items to be shown which was created before a certain date.
"Between" option is used when you want the items to be shown which was created over a period between two certain dates.
"On" option is used when you want the items to be shown which was created on a certain date.

 

 

Modified Date: You can narrow down the Asset Library items on the basis of the day they were last modified. The process is similar to the Created Date.

Video Type: You can narrow down to only videos among the Asset Library items. There are three types of videos supported by Spayee which you can choose from.
Three types are Spayee, YouTube & Vimeo videos.

 

 

Processing Status: You can narrow down the Asset Library items on the basis of their processing status. There are two ways of using the "Processing Status" filter.
"Under Process" option is used when you want to narrow down to items which are yet to be 100% processed.
"Complete" option is used when you want to narrow down to items which are 100% processed.
The process is similar to using the filter on "Video Type".

Search Title

This section is placed right beside "Add Filters". From here you can search any item you want by their title. Just type out the title in the box and click on "search". You can also apply filter and then search item on the filtered list by title.

 

No. of Entries

The number of items is evenly distributed among the multiple pages in the Asset library. By default, 10 items per page are shown. However, 10 can be changed to either 25, 50 or 100. Therefore, if you select 25, then top 25 items will be viewed on the first page.

 

CheckBox

Check Box is used to select the items which you want to add to the course.
Check the boxes of the items you want to add, then select "Add".

Created Date

This column shows the individual date on which the particular item is created.

Modified Date

This column shows the individual date on which the particular item was last modified.

Title 

This column shows the Title under which the items were uploaded.

Type

This column shows the Type of Item (Pdf, Video, Form, Text and others) .

 

You can sort the results by clicking on the icon placed along with Create Date, Modified Date, and Type.
