Welcome to the Online School of Poetry! We are so excited to have you on board! You are at the current tutorial on how to set up a course on our platform. The Online School of Poetry (OSP) runs on the WordPress Content Management System and LearnDash, the award-winning Learning Management System, and is very robust and sturdy. We have top of the line security, and we will be adding more customization over time. Enjoy the course and let us know if you don’t understand anything in this tutorial.
This tutorial was set-up with the Course Builder and used several of the modules you can use for your classes.
There is a more in-depth tutorial on each section of the portal. This is an overview of how to build your course.
A few things I want to bring to your attention first. NEVER make your courses free unless I have talked to you about it first. Also in the “Builder Course Page” area, publish the course as a “Private – Only visible to site admins and editors” until you have completed it and we both can display it to the potential students.
I would recommend going through the tutorials in the “Instructor Overview” step-wise. You will get so much more from that experience and it will help you build your courses better. Starting with this course “Build a Course” and continuing with the courses in the dropdown menu and then continuing to the right with the other tutorials in order.
Please email me at [email protected] if you have any questions, and all of you have my phone number.
