The editor allows you to piece your course together like a puzzle. Add sections to your lesson and easily rearrange the blocks to create your content. Some sections have options for you to customize the look of your course.
Here's a short introduction video for you:
On every block you'll see two arrows, an 'X' and in some cases a little gear. Rearrange the blocks using the arrow buttons and delete the block by clicking the 'X'. You can open and close the block's options by clicking on the gear.
Adding New Blocks
There are 2 ways to add a new block: At the bottom of the page you can choose a new block from the list. Or click the '+' sign in between any block to add one right there.
You'll find these blocks on both the lesson editor and the course description editor. Once you understand how these work, you're on your way to creating a professional looking e-course.
A rich text editor lets you get creative with your words. You know how this block works, the bulk of your content will probably go in here. Create visual interest by adding multiple text blocks broken up by images.
Add the image block and choose a file to upload; .png, .jpeg and .gif work best. Once you upload your image, you'll notice you can play with the options by clicking the gear on the left hand side of the block. Here you can change the border, corners and alignment.
Upload a video using the video block. Pretty much any format will work but .mp4 and .m4v are best. Keep in the mind that if you are uploading a very large video it may take several hours to process. Adding a video that has already had been formatted for the web using a video editing program will save you tons of time and bandwidth.
Add the audio block to add an audio clip to your lesson. Accepted audio formats are .mp3 and .m4a.
Want to give your participants a worksheet or sample files? Then the downloadable block is what you want! Upload almost any kind of file (like a .pdf or .psd) and allow your participants to download that file. Hit preview and you'll see what your participants will see, a polished little 'download' button where they can get the file.

3. Table of Contents
