Meta data / Information on the course

On top of the info page you can find the description of the course, as well as possibly an image or short movie.

The next section is displayed in either one or two segments, depending on the available information. If available, this section provides you among other with information on the course objectives, requirements or obtainable points.

The drop-down box "Technical information" contains OpenOLAT specific information on the listing and the use of the learning resource, e.g. the list of authors, creation and edit dates or the associated courses.


By means of an external link your course participants can get to your course directly after logging in.

If you use this second link with the additional two parameters guest and lang users will get to that learning resource by means of a guest account without logging in.

The "Overview" segment provides you with information on the execution period of the course, i.e. the period in which the course is conducted, the location, the estimated work expenditure and the course language. You can rate and comment the course. The catalog listing is added, too.

With the corresponding access permissions you can either start or book the course directly beneath the course description using the "Start/Book Course" button.

"My data" lists your course specific data, i.e. your passed status (if applicable), your last access to the course, and the groups with which you are registered to the course. If so allowed, participants can leave the course here.

Employing the course setting "Change description" you can add more or modify already existing data. Detailed information on included meta data can be found on page Info Page: Add Meta Data.
