Using a Personal Domain for a Course

Follow

In order to offer a course from your website, you can add a CNAME to your domain. For example, if you want your course to be offered on courses.yoursite.com, you would add the CNAME "courses" to the domain yoursite.com in your domain name system (DNS).

1. Decide on your CNAME

Tip: Don't use a CNAME that is specific to one course if you plan to offer multiple courses using that CNAME. For example, my first course is about photography but my second course is about painting. Instead of using the CNAME "photography" I'll use "courses" to cover all of my courses.

2. Add the CNAME to your domain in your DNS

The exact steps will differ depending upon your DNS service. Find help resources for common DNS systems by clicking on a link below.

3. Point the CNAME to learn.skilljar.com

The format is typically:

Host: courses (or whatever subdomain you picked in #1)
Points to: learn.skilljar.com

This will not affect your existing site at all, and it's very unlikely anyone will stumble across the link unless you send it to them or start promoting.

4. Submit your subdomain to Skilljar

We'll finish the configuration for your Skilljar account. You can submit your request to Skilljar with this form: New Domain Request
