From the course outline (Create > Outline), you can create a new lesson or edit an existing one.
Lesson Content and Settings Pages
You work with a lesson on two pages:
- content page: view and edit the lesson’s title and content
- settings page: view and edit other settings for the lesson
Add a New Lesson
Go to Create > Outline.
Find the unit to which you want to add the lesson.
Below the unit (and any existing lessons in the unit), find and click + Add Lesson.
This will take you to the lesson’s content page.
Add Lesson Content
The lesson’s content page consists of three parts:
- the title of the lesson
- a text box for adding content to the lesson body
- skills that the lesson teaches
Enter the title of the lesson that will appear in the syllabus.
Do not worry about numbering lessons. By default, Course Builder numbers lessons within a unit automatically. If you would prefer a lesson not have a number, you can adjust its auto-number setting.
Use the content editor to compose the body of the lesson.
For example, you would use the editor’s YouTube video component to embed a YouTube video in a lesson.
Associating a lesson with one or more skills ties your course’s structure to its goals (teaching a set of skills).
Learn more about skills in Course Builder.
Add existing skills
Click + Add Skill. If + Add Skill is grayed-out, then your course does not have any skills listed.
In the dialog that appears, check one or more skills in the list or search for a skill in the search box at the top.
Create and add a new skill
To add a skill to the lesson that is not in the course’s current list of skills.
Click + Create New Skill.
Name the skill and optionally describe it.
Give the skill prerequisites by clicking + Add Skill under the Prerequisites heading.
When you save the new skill, it will be saved in your course’s skills list and added to the current lesson.
