A high engagement level in an online course is a great metric to measure success. One of the key factors of doing this is by providing additional learning material that learners can use to enhance their understanding of the subject material.
To that, Knorish's course builder allows you to add documents to the course which can be read only and should you wish you can documents as downloadable content as well.
Upload Documents For Viewing
With Knorish you can upload Word Docs, PDFs, PPTs, or even an excel file for addition to your course as course learning material. In order to do this simply access the course builder for your course. Type the name of the Section and of the chapter as shown below.
Once done, simply click on the document tab, and click Add Document File. Once you do that, in the screen that opens next, select the file that you would like to upload.
Once the content is uploaded, you would see the file name listed. To view the added file, simply click on 'Open Document'
Adding Downloadable Files
Downloadable files are created in an online course as additional reading material that learners can use beyond the online course as per their convenience. The process of uploading the files is the same as listed above however the difference would be in how the files are viewed while the course is being viewed.
To add downloadable files, simply click on the highlighted tab, select the file you want to share with learners as a downloadable file and then simply click on add. You can share PDFs, PPTs, Excel sheets in .xlsx format, and even zipped files in a .zip or .rar files.
To view how the course would look like with a downloadable file, simply click on preview course on top left of the course builder.
