How do I help new students navigate around my course?


Often times, the course you create may be your students' first experience with OpenLearning's platform. Fortunately, we have a walkthrough feature that you can enable.

The walkthrough is a short series of slides that briefly explains the social nature of OpenLearning. This feature will only activate when a student joins a course for the first time and will help guide them forward and familiarise them with the course.

When a student joins a course for the first time, they will see a welcome message.



Afterwards, orange dots will begin to appear on some of the course features.


When they click on the orange dots, they will receive a bit of information on that feature. They will see these when they run into new features throughout the course.




Go to Course Setup > Advanced.


Scroll to the bottom of the Miscellaneous section and tick the box next to Enable Walkthrough.
