Reviewing courses

EdApp makes it easy to review courses before they launch to learners!

Whether you're looking to share your courseware with senior stakeholders for approval ahead of your launch, or your team is looking to make some tweaks as part of your production process, you can easily share your courses for review before they are available to your end-users. 

Option 1: Share a Preview Link 

Top Tip: This option is best if you're sharing just a few lessons for review. Each lesson has its own preview link attached to it so if you're sharing multiple lessons, you'll need to send through multiple links. This is also a good option for reviewers who don't need to be set up in the platform. Anyone with the link can access the lesson without needing to create an account.  

  1. Navigate to the lesson you'd like to share. 
  2. Navigate to the Access Rules tab and make sure the Share this lesson box is checked.

3. Share this link with any stakeholders. They'll be able to navigate through the lesson as a user would. No completion data will be synced. The display will show in Desktop view. 

Option 2: Set up Reviewer Permissions 

Top Tip: This is a good option if you'd like your reviewers to experience the platform exactly like a learner would, but you don't wish for your courses to be published yet. Reviewer permissions allow users to access content assigned to their user group (even draft content) on the learner's app. 

  1. Navigate to the User pane and select Users. 
  2. Navigate to the user you would like to set the Reviewer permission to and click on their profile. 
  3. Scroll to the Roles area and make sure the Reviewer box is checked.

4. When this user now logs in to the Learner's App, they'll be able to see content assigned to their user group, including content that has been drafted. 

Option 3: Review Lesson Text PDF

Top Tip: This is a good option if you'd like your reviewers to be able to provide you with feedback on specific slides in your lesson. They can simply make comments in your PDF export and then you can implement the changes in the Authoring Tool. 

  1. Navigate to the lesson you'd like to export the PDF for. 
  2. Click Review Lesson text.
