If you would like to get to know how to use the course editor the following chapter will provide you with useful information. Having reached the end of our illustrated guide you will have created a course similar to the one created with the Wizard. However, in contrast to the Wizard you will have made yourself familiar with the features of the course editor and will therefore be able to edit courses or create more complex ones later on.

Step 1: Create course
1 Click on "Authoring" in the main navigation.
2 Select "Course" in the drop down menu "Create" in the toolbar.
3 Insert title and click "Create".

5 Start course editor from the "Tools" drop down menu in the toolbar.
Step 2: Insert welcome page

5 Write a welcome message.
6 Click on "Save and close".
Step 3: Insert folder for courseware before uploading documents from your computer

Step 5: Publish and activate your course
1 Select "Publish" in the course toolbar on the top.
