How to Use Course Builder for Online Learning

Modified on Mon, 01 May 2023 at 08:31 AM

Online learning drives educational outcomes for members of your community, internal and external to your organization. Engage both, with compelling online learning course content created on MarketScale. 

Creating an online learning course is easy. From your dashboard, click the orange academic cap icon.

You will land on the Course Builder page. Here, you’ll find the Builder, as well as the My Courses section where you can access your currently in progress and completed courses.

To build a new course, enter a title and description for your course. This should include basic details about what learners will gain by completing your course.

Additional options include privacy filters for who will see your course before, during and after its completion. MarketScale recommends keeping the default setting for Organization. When complete, click "Next."

After submitting your course title and description, you are ready to begin building your course content. You will find three pre-built lessons – Intro, Lesson 1, and Conclusion.

Each lesson features two sections, and several options for customization.  You will have three methods for building your course:

1. The red Camera icon allows you to record a video

2. The blue Upload icon allows you to upload media for the lesson

3.  The green Plus icon allows you make a request from a collaborator to contribute a content for the lesson

Click the pencil icon to change the title of a lesson.

To add additional lessons, click the plus icon. To remove a lesson, click the minus icon.

The additional notes field is designed for you to provide instructions to the person responsible for recording that given lesson. You can attach supporting materials by clicking the paper clip icon. You can add bulleted lists by click the icon.

Requesting a content for a lesson

Click on the green "Plus" icon to request for a content.

Type in the name of the person you are requesting from. If they are already a user in MarketScale Studio, their profile will appear automatically. We recommend course contributors to have an account for the best experience.

Next, select a date for when you would like them to complete their course content by. Include any additional notes you have for instructions on what you’d like to see from their course contribution. When you click send request, your requestee will receive an email like this:

The requestee simply needs to click Respond, where they will be prompted to Record or Upload their course content. If they need to screen-capture content, they can click Record and select Screen Capture as their camera option. After the requestee has recorded or uploaded their content, they will click submit, and you will be notified that they have completed their request.

Uploading Media to Complete a Lesson

Click on the blue Upload icon to upload a content in building a couse.

Simply drag and drop, or click Add files to upload videos or photos, up to 20GB in size. Include any additional notes about the content or editing that will be necessary in the additional notes section. Click save when complete.

Recording a Video for a Lesson

The final option for creating course content is to record it yourself. Record your own content by clicking the red Camera icon.

Record your video, or change your camera to the screen-capture option to record your screen. Leave any additional notes you have about the content or editing in the additional notes section. Click save when complete.

You have now completed your course content. Within each additional notes section, include any specific editing or other notes you have for the MarketScale Studio editors. Under each video, you have options to download the media to your computer, to add specific editing requests using the proofing tool, as well as the ability to attach additional materials related to the video upload.

After completing all the lessons, you have the option  Submit the Course, Delete or Save a Draft. Once submitted, your course will go to MarketScale for editing, and be delivered back to you ready for publishing on your channel or LMS.
