Each course and lesson need these images and text. Some other items are optional, like videos, downloadable files, and links.

What content looks like

Before users open a course, they might see it featured in a rotator, grid, or list module. It displays the course’s image, name and abstract. Most modules use the smaller list image. Featured rotators use the larger banner image.

Modules can look different depending on their configuration. Learn more about modules.

Courses on a module page.

Then users enter the course page. It displays the image and description.

A course page, before starting.

Once users start the course, it displays the list of lessons. Think of the course as the “container” for lessons inside of it.

A course page, after starting.

Then users go through the lessons. Each lesson page can look different! You might include a description, questions, or downloadable resources. An image can display at the top of the page. Or, if there’s a video, it replaces the image.

Finally, users might download a certificate for the completed course.

File type

Notes

OPTIONAL
Video lesson

  • Hosted on Youtube, Wistia, Vimeo, or Brightcove

  • Or hosted with JUNO through Amazon IVS

Check your video’s privacy settings to make sure attendees will be able to view your video. Also note that regional laws block some video platforms. Learn more about video privacy settings.

To add more than one video, we recommend breaking up the content into multiple lessons with one video on each page. Other workarounds, like adding iframes, will prevent you from tracking analytics about the percentage of the video watched.

Files

File type and size

OPTIONAL
Downloadable resources

Size: We recommend under 10 MB for the fastest download speed. This accommodates most documents and images. The maximum is 10 GB, but we only recommend this for large video files.

Allowed file types:

  • Documents: .pdf, .csv, .xml, .zip, Microsoft Word (.doc, .docx), Microsoft PowerPoint (.ppt, .pptx, .pptm, .ppsx, .ppsm), Microsoft Excel (.xlsx, .xls, .xlsm, .xltm, .xltx, .xlsb), Apple Pages (.pages), Apple Keynote (.key), Adobe Photoshop (.psd), OpenDocument (.odt, .odp), Plain and Rich Text Files (.txt, .rtf)

  • Videos: .mp4, .mov

Resources cannot be web links. We recommend adding links to the content description instead.

We support these major file types, but let us know if you have a different one. Our team will work with you to best support the use of that file type for your platform.
