After creating a course in Skilljar, you can publish the content to your course catalog to make it visible and accessible to students.

Check out the Quick tip!

There are two ways to publish your course:

  1. From Course Management, you can publish the course you're currently editing directly from the course editing view:Screen_Shot_2019-06-17_at_3.55.35_PM.png
  2. From Domains & Publishing, you can publish any course that exists under Course Management.Screen_Shot_2019-06-17_at_4.02.48_PM.png

 

Setting Course Publishing settings 

After starting the course publishing process, you will be brought to the Published Course page where you will set all of the publishing settings for your course. 

  1. Domain:
    • Select the domain you are looking to publish the course onto from the dropdown
    • Verify that the correct course is listed in the course dropdown as publishing will make the course live on the domain that you select.
  2. Purchase Settings:
    • You can set the price and checkout quantity for the course here if you are looking to sell course access. 
    • If your course is free, you can move onto the next section.
    • You can also add this course to existing promo code pools if you already offer promo codes.
  3. Enrollment Settings:
  4. Tags:
  5. Course Series:
    • You can add the course you are publishing to existing Course Series that you have already created.
  6. Group Visibility
    • You can set the default Visibility and group settings using the Group Visibility settings.
  7. Pre-requisites
    • You can select other published courses as a pre-requisite to this course.
  8. Advanced Settings
    • These settings will allow you to close a course for registration if needed or remove the registration requirement. 
      • Removing the registration requirement is not recommended, as we do not track student analytics data for courses that do not require registration.

Save the course by clicking Save!

 

Making a published course visible on the catalog

After Publishing a course, you will need to make the course tile visible on the catalog. If you are using a course series to display this course to your students, you may not need to do this step.

At the bottom of the Catalog Settings, select the course that was just published to make it visible on the catalog page and then save:
