My course is ready! How do I turn my course online to start collecting enrolments?

Congratulations on getting your course ready to go live! To turn your course online to start collecting enrolments, follow these steps.

Step 1

Go to Course Setup > General

Step 2

Press the course status toggle from offline to online

Your course is now ready for students to enrol!


Setting a future start date to build enrolments

We recommend setting a start date for your course, in a few weeks from now, to give you maximum time to promote your course and build up enrolments. That way, when your course starts, there will be a group of students starting together. To do this, follow these steps.

Step 1

Go to Administer Students > Timeline

Step 2

Set a start date on your class

 

When a start date is set, un-enrolled students will see the Course Landing Page like this:

When a student enrols, they will see this message on the Course Landing Page:

 We also recommend setting up a Course Start Email in Course Setup > Advanced, to remind pre-enrolled students when the course goes live and they can begin progressing through the course activities.

The Course Start Email a student receives:


My course won't turn online! What do I do?

Sometimes when a course is turned online too quickly, we like to do a quick check to make sure it's ready for students to enrol. It can take a few days for this process to be completed so please be patient!

If you're still having trouble, please contact us at support@openlearning.com and include a link to the course you'd like to turn online. We will be happy to assist you.
