Create a course
With the help of the Kwiga platform, it is possible to create courses of any format, including the division of the course program into modules. Modules help to evenly distribute the load, organize and group course materials. At your disposal are video and audio lessons, text lessons with the ability to attach files of various formats and extensions, as well as tests and test questions to consolidate knowledge.
After clicking on the blue button at the top +Create - Course and choosing your future online course, you need to fill in the basic Course Information.
The next step is to create a course program, think over the structure and content, create the “course skeleton”.
You can create an unlimited number of lessons in a course, combine lessons into modules, and the modules themselves into sections. You can drag and drop lessons in places, create lessons outside the module, etc.
To start creating a course, click +Add lesson.
A new module is created by clicking the +Module button. For each individual module, it is possible to specify a name, add a general description and an image.
Adding Lessons to Modules
You can add an unlimited number of lessons to each module and save the Name for each. To go to editing, just click on the name of the lesson.
Module opening delay setting
It is possible to set up step-by-step access to information using Kwiga. For example, open viewing only the first few lessons immediately after payment, and then every week, at the same time, give access to the next module.
Simply divide the course program into several modules and Set delays for the product . You can determine how many days after gaining access to the course, students will open the next lesson or module as a whole (then the delay in opening access applies to all lessons in the module).
Click on set a delay, specify the number of days after gaining access to the course. Also, you can set the Opening time - hours and minutes, taking into account the time zone.
Using the Delay Display: Relative and Calendar, you can visually view the settings you have set, the schedule for opening modules.
Considering that each participant in the course can have a different start date, using the Delay Display, you can understand when students will see the next module.
Materials for students can be submitted in the form of video, audio or in text format. And the lessons themselves in the course may differ in the type of content. The lesson editor allows you to attach links and files of various formats and extensions.
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.
If you want to insert text, image, then use the corresponding button. 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.
To attach a file and share it with students, use the File option. You can attach most types of files.
Each lesson can consist of several information blocks, for example, it is possible to add a video, and in addition - a text block with explanations, useful links, etc.
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 registration without taking into account the offer settings.
At this step, you can Add a checkpoint - so the student will be able to advance 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.
Enable or disable the ability to leave comments as needed. Also, view the display of the lesson using the link to the public page.
To switch between lessons, it is not necessary to go back to the Course program on the previous page. To proceed to 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.
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.
Saving and publishing
In order not to lose the data already entered, you can always Save changes or Save your course as a draft.
Before publishing the course, using the link to the public page, you can check whether the information is displayed correctly and, in general, see how your course will look for students.
When the course is ready, the last step is to click on the switch next to Publish and make it green.
Ready. After a successful publication, students will be able to see your course. To add a student to a course, exit the course editor, and click on Participants:
