Build a Course Library With Embed Snippets for Enrollment Links

Introducing Embed Snippets for Enrollment Links!

Embed snippets provide a quick and easy way to add Coassemble course cards to your personal website, company website or intranet, allowing anyone with access to your site the ability to self-enrol into the courses you've chosen to share. 

All you need to do is create your snippet, customize it, and paste it into your website's code. 


Why use embed snippets? 

There are a whole host of ways to use utilise Embed snippets — below are just a few examples: 

  • Create a course library/catalogue to allow internal staff to self enrol into the courses they choose
  • Create teaser courses on your website to entice potential customers to buy the courses behind your paywall
  • Build a course academy to train customers on how to use your product


Finding Embed Snippets

Embed snippets can be accessed from the enrolment links modal inside each course. 

Course > Enrollments > Enrollment links

To get started, click the 'Create embed' button. 


Customizing Embed Snippets

You can change the height or width of the course card, or set it to be responsive. You can also change the button color, and the button text that appears on each card. 

If you need something smaller to fit on a footer or banner, select the compact option shown below. 

If you have any feedback about Embed snippets, or would like to share with us a unique way you've used them, don't hesitate to contact us at support@coassemble.com 

⚠️ Important News! Share Pages to Be Retired

Before today, if you wanted to export SCORM, or create a Share URL you would need to go to the 'Share' page. As part of our latest release, we've added all of this functionality to the resource library. In light of this, we will soon be retiring the existing share pages. 

You will notice when visiting the share page that we've added a banner notifying our users that the page will soon be retiring. We encourage you to start using the resource library to export SCORM or create share/previewing so that you can provide feedback before we remove the share page altogether.  

How to export SCORM or create a share/preview link from the resource library

If you wanted to export a SCORM object, or create a share/preview link for one of your lessons, select the 'Lessons' tab from within the resource library. Find the lesson you'd like to share, and from the context menu select the 'Share lesson' option.

From the modal window that appears, you'll find options to create a Share link, or export a SCORM object. 

Once you've shared a lesson or quiz, a little yellow share icon will appear next to the resource title indicating that the resource has been shared.

Create Group Trainers Without Having to Assign a Role

You can now create group trainers without having to assign the trainer a role. 

For those users who invite trainers to manage a single group, you can now add them to your workspace without needing to provide them with a workspace level role.

To create a group trainer, go to Users > Groups > Create group trainer, and follow the prompts.
