So you have your LMS. Awesome! But what is an LMS without content? And what is content anyway?
Content is another term for training material. You can add training for virtually anything.
Course > Lesson > Topic
A course is the entire training offering. There will be at least 1 lesson per course, but you can have as many lessons as you want for any given course. A topic are the sections within a lesson. Again, you can have as many topics as you want within a lesson.
To recap, each lesson (or module) has one or more topics. Each course has one or more lessons. You can also add quizzes to your training at the the topic, lesson, or course level.
It’s common to add mini quizzes or knowledge checks for each topic or lesson and then a comprehensive final exam for the entire course.
To add training, you can simply go to LearnDash > Courses. Then you can click “Add New.” as shown in the screenshot below.
After clicking “Add New,” you can add your course title and click “Course Builder.” Here, you can add lessons, topics, quizzes, etc.
To edit the lessons or topics, you go to LearnDash > Lessons or LearnDash > Topics and hover over the lesson or topic name and click edit.
