Course Collections

Course collections act as folders and are great for organizing your courses to make a better user experience for your learners. 

Course collections act as folders on your account which hold courses. They allow your learners to be able to easily find the relevant courses that they want to complete at that point in time.

Playlists vs Collections

Copy a Course into another Course Collection

 

Create a collection

Create Course Collections by clicking the drop-down menu next to "create a course" on the courses page. 

 

Name your collection then go to Settings.

 

Select the courses on the left to add to your collection.

The same course cannot be in multiple collections like for Playlists. If you want the same course in multiple collections, they will have to be copies of the original course. See this article for how to copy a course into another course collection.

You can click and hold on a course tile to drag the order.

 

Branding

The branding tab allows you to add a cover image to your course collection. These can be uploaded from your computer or using our Canva button.

See course and lesson branding for more information about different options

This tab allows admins to add an external ID to identify this collection in external API requests. This ID must be unique.

 

Difference between Collections & Playlists

Playlist

Course Collection

Creates a sequence of courses for learners on a particular flow of knowledge that builds up towards a theme (e.g. Onboarding).

Acts as a folder for learners and for admins to organise courses by learning topic. 

Sits at the top of the learner’s home page in a dedicated section for “Playlists”.

Groups courses together to sit in the “Courses” section.

Courses added to a playlist will still also display under the “courses” section in the learner app.

Once courses are moved into a collection, that’s where they will display for learners.

The same course can be added to multiple Playlists. 

The same course cannot be in multiple course collections. If you want the same course in multiple course collections, they will have to be copies of the original course.

Once a playlist is completed, learners get a completion icon (badge) along with a custom message.
