The authoring section provides authors with all necessary tools and little helpers for creating, editing and importing courses and other learning resources.

Just like Courses, the Authoring section opens on the Favourites tab. Courses and other learning resources bookmarked in the courses section are also listed here.

The tab "My Entries" lists all learning resources you have created or you have been appointed as owner (co-author).

Which exact information should be shown can be set by choosing the desired columns. For e.g. in the column ref you can see if or how often a learning resource has been referenced and you can jump directly into the corresponding course. 

The search form helps you to find all learning resources you have access to. You can look for title, ID, author or description and limit the search to your own learning resources, a life cycle status as well as to references. Also you can search for types of learning resources and licenses.

In the tab "Deleted" alls learning resources which have been deleted are listed. The can be restored here or be deleted definitely by the administrator. 


The learning resources shown beside can be created in OpenOLAT. Further more learning resources and further files can be imported.


Each learning resource will be explained in the detailed view by means of metadata. These metadata give further information on e.g. who has access to the learning content. The owner of a learning resource can modify the name of his learning resource, its description or access as well as add other owners.

This chapter introduces you to various types of learning resources, operations available in the authoring section an information on the info page, the detailed page of a learning resource.
