Structure & features of online courses

  • Updated

In the Content tab, you provide the content for your online course and the menu structure.

Here is an overview of the individual elements.


Providing the course structure

On the left you can see the course structure. This is also displayed to the customer as a navigation at the same time.

You create menu items and pages here.

You can use the menu items like chapters and the customer can open and close them and thus view the pages contained there.

You provide the course lessons on the pages. You can use the editor to add as much content as you like, such as text, images, videos, audio or attachments.


You have many setting options on the pages. Here is an overview.


1) Tab Content - Here you will find everything relevant to the content, settings and the content itself.

2) Tab Quiz - For pages where "Static Pages" is not activated, you can provide a quiz as a learning progress check.

3) Event email tab - Here you can configure event-based emails. These are sent automatically when the event occurs (activation of the page (drip-in) or completion of the page).

4) Tab Awards - In the "Awarding" area, you determine whether your award will be delivered after completing a specific lesson ("end of lesson") or after passing the quiz. Here you also select the product that should act as an award.


The Settings page is where you'll find various settings for your site.

Tip: If you want all pages to have the same settings, create a page as a template and copy it for each new page. Then you can also store certain text formatting there, such as colors, heading formats, fonts that you use again and again.

5) Static pages

Specify here whether your pages are static or dynamic. With dynamic pages, the customer sees a "done" button in the course. This will mark the page

  • as done in the menu
  • the progress bar shows a higher percentage
  • the quiz for this page may appear (depending on your configuration)
  • the "Completed page" event is triggered so that the event mail you may have stored is sent.

6) Allow preview for this page

If you activate the "Allow preview for page" function, your potential customers can see the content of this page on the product page in the "Content" tab, where they see your course structure, without buying the product. This gives them an insight into your course and the look and feel of the course.

7) Comments

Here you determine whether commentsare allowed for the page (default).

8) Facebook Comments

Here you determine whether the Facebook comments function is activated for the page (default).

9) Allow lesson reset

Determine here whether your participants can view this lesson only once or as often as they like.

10) Drip In

Here you decide when the page in your course is made available to the customer = drip in. For a course set to "from payment," you can set the drip-in in days.
0 = Purchase date
1 = Next day. 

In addition, you can decide whether the time for each day is the time of delivery (usually the time of payment) or a specific time.

For a course with the setting "from date" you can enter the date and time for the drip-in here.

11) Drop Out

If you only want your lesson to be available for a certain period of time, use the drop-out settings here, i.e. the automatic "switching off" of the lesson after a certain time interval (hours, days, weeks or months).

12) Done button text

Dynamic course pages can be manually marked as completed by your participants by clicking on the "Finish" button. The next lesson opens or your quiz starts, depending on the setting. Here you can customize the text of the button. The default text is "Done."

Content of the page

13) Page title

Here you provide the title of the page. This also appears in the navigation on the left and in the "Content" tab on your product page.

14) Content

Here you will find our elopage builder with many options for providing your content.

15) Content before start date

Here you can see the content of your course page before it is activated via a timed drip-in. You can customize the content with the pagebuilder.

16) Content by end date

Here you can see the content of your course page after the content is no longer visible due to a time-controlled drop-out. You can also customize the content here with the pagebuilder.

17) Copy link

By clicking on this button you copy the lesson link to your clipboard so that you can embed the link to this course page on external channels. Your participants will be forwarded directly to the lesson you have specified when they view the link. You can find more information in the support article >>Directly linking to a specific course lesson. You can find out how to set up links via button within your online course in the support article >>Linking from online course pages.

18) Publishing a page in the course

And last but not least, you should decide whether your page will be published in the course or not. The default setting is that the page is not published. This is also shown to you in the menu on the left.

Without publication, it will also not appear in the table of contents on your product page. Therefore, it is important that you always publish when you have all the settings and content ready.

Even if you already have participants, you can create the content of your site without your customers being able to see it.

Important: If you already have participants in the course, please make sure that you publish the pages correctly. Because as soon as a customer buys the course, the publication and, if applicable, email time is calculated for all pages.

When buying

  • if a page is published and
  • the drip-in time has been reached (e.g. at drip-in 0)

and you postpone the drip-in time later, then the customer will continue to see the page. Because we won't take away from the customer all the pages that he has already seen.

So be careful here if you want to change something at the drip-in point later.
