Previously added courses can be edited and deleted by selecting “Manage > Courses” from the top menu and clicking the row for the relevant course. The steps for editing the course essentially work in the same way as for adding a course.
Updating general course information
Changes to the course name, category or description can be made by selecting the “EDIT COURSE” button on the information panel. The course will update as soon as you click “SAVE” and users will see the updated information the next time they load that course.
Replacing course files
You can replace a course’s SCORM file by selecting the “CHANGE FILE” button on the SCORM file panel. All users opening the course will see the new files next time they open it. All certificates and scores will remain intact for users who have already completed the course.
NB Any users who attempt to resume a course they had already started will be forced to start again from the beginning.
Unpublishing a course
If you want to stop people accessing a course, but do not want to lose certificates and data, you can do this via the manage availability panel. Use the “Published” toggle switch to control its status. The account owner will still be able to see reports for the course and access certificates, but learners will not be able to access it themselves.
You can choose if a course issues a certificate - by default a course will issue a certificate.
If the course is configured to issue a certificate, then the user will have access to a certificate when the course issues a "passed" or "completed" message to the system.
You can set how long certificates are valid for by clicking "EDIT CERTIFICATE". From this page you can enter the number of days until the certificate expires, and also when to start showing the learner a reminder message.
Deleting a course
You can delete a course from the course details page.
Please note that if a course is deleted:
- ALL existing data for that course will be deleted, including learner attempts and scores
- no user will be able to launch the course
- neither learners nor account owners will be able to access certificates for that course
- the course will not show in any reports.
If you wish to stop people accessing the course without losing certificates you should unpublish it (see above).
