How to create a course

To get started, you need to click on the blue button at the top +Create - Course and fill in the main Information about the course .

Select a name, a language, fill in a detailed description and attach an image size 1000 x 562. We recommend paying attention to this step, since all the information specified here will be displayed on the public page of the course.

Filling the course program

The next step is to create a course program, think over the sequence of lessons, titles and their content.

Add the required amount, using + Lesson, and edit the title.

If you click on the name of the lesson itself, a page will open for filling it with information.

Filling lessons

Materials for students can be submitted in the form of video, audio or in text format. The lesson editor allows you to attach links and files of various formats and extensions to the lesson.

Use the + Video button to add Video files. You can paste a link to a video from Youtube, Vimeo, Bunny CDN, or upload the video directly to the storage on Kwiga.

You can add an unlimited number of videos to a lesson, to add another video just add another +Video block.

Use the Audio button to add audio files.

The same button is used if you want to embed third-party services on the page, such as a Google form, a link to wordwall, or another service that allows you to insert iframe code. For such blocks, you can add a section name to better structure the data.

To attach a file and share it with students, use the File option. You can attach most types of files.


At the Practice step, you can add tests or homework to the lesson - quizzes, to test knowledge or receive feedback from students. They are created separately from the lesson in the menu Products - Tests, assignments, polls, and then attached to it.

Click on the + next to Add a quiz and select the name of the appropriate quiz from the list.

If at the time of filling the lesson, the corresponding task has not yet been created on Kwiga, you can do this by clicking the + next to Add Quiz and clicking the +Quiz button to proceed to create a new practice task. In a new window, start creating a new task by clicking the + Quiz button.

Access to the lesson

If necessary, separate settings are available for each lesson, how and when students will see the lesson.

As part of the online course, it is possible to make a public lesson - without authorization, it is open to any visitor / user of the platform.

At this stage of creating or editing a lesson, it is also possible to remove restrictions on the beginning of access to the lesson, it will be visible immediately after accepting or paying for the offer, without taking into account the settings of the offer.

At this step, you can Add a checkpoint - so the student will be able to move further in the course, only after completing the practical task in the lesson. Or vice versa Remove checkpoint restrictions for access to the lesson - make the lesson available regardless of the configured checkpoints in previous lessons.

Lesson settings

Also, you can turn on or off comments under the lesson. And see how it will be displayed using a link to a public page.

To switch between lessons, it is not necessary to go back to the Course program on the previous page. To proceed editing the next lesson, just click on the “tick” next to the name and select the required lesson from the list, or create a new lesson using the + Lesson button.

It is also possible to set a delay in opening a lesson - specify how many days after gaining access to the course, a separate lesson will be opened for students.


In order for your students to be able to see the course, you need to create an offer - a set of rules for gaining access to the course. With multiple offers, you can set up different rates for the same online course.

It is through offers in Kwiga that access to course materials is configured, as well as purchase restrictions are set: by terms and / or by the number of students.

+Add an offer to make your course paid, limit the number of places on the course, or specify specific dates. When creating an offer, it is also possible to set its cost, add a discount promotion and connect a payment system.
