Why publish a course?

Publish course page

Possible reasons for publishing a course include:

  • To share it with the world
  • To sell your course design/methodology
  • To attract more participants (students, teachers...)

Advertising a course for people to join

You can display a link to your course on any hub your site is registered on. The hub will redirect users on your course. T

  1. Click the button 'Advertise this course for people to join'.
  2. Select the hub where you want to advertise your course.
  3. Enter information about the course.
  4. Click the 'Advertise this course' button.

The course will then need to be approved by the hub administrator before it appears in the course listing.

The advert for the course may be updated or removed at any time by clicking an appropriate button in the actions column.

Tip! When you advertise a course try to make the course easy to see for people not registered on your site (allow guest access in your course settings / allow Auto-login guests / allow people to register themself).

Sharing a course for people to download
