Course Templates

Course templates are here! 

We've started small by adding 4 common-use course templates to our library that you can use to create courses specifically for your business. These templates include:

  • Company onboarding
  • Remote work policy
  • Social media policy
  • Talking to customers

We hope these templates will be a great starting point for you to create onboarding or policies for your company using Coassemble.

If you have any ideas for additional templates you'd like to see in the library, please let us know and we'll do our best to deliver them!

To check out our course templates, simply click the 'Create course' button on the home screen and choose 'Use a template'. 

We've Rebranded Noticeboards As Announcements

We're relaunching the noticeboard feature as Announcements

Announcements allow you to post single-use messages to groups of learners in a course. Announcements appear as a small popup that appears in the top-right-hand corner of the screen allowing you to post a reminder or an update to the course as the learner works through it. 

The functionality is essentially the same with a just a few notable changes:

  1. All announcements will be dismissible, you don’t have the option of making them not dismissible, however, you can pin them to the announcement board if you choose to. 
  2. Instead of displaying a background colour to distinguish between the announcement types, you choose a display icon
  3. The announcements are no longer hidden by a menu, they appear in a fixed position at in the top-right-hand corner of the screen when a learner is in a course. 

New Inline Editing for the Course Overview

We've updated the course overview editor to create an experience where you can edit the course overview inline, providing a visual reference of how it will look for learners. 

A great new feature with the editor is that you can now reposition the course card image to suit the overview screen. 

We've also repositioned the video placement so that it's visible to your learners inline and changes to the course title and descriptions are auto saved.

New Course Settings Menu and Reports Modal

In an effort to simplify courses, we've moved course prerequisites, course notifications, compliance mapping, and the resource folder selector to a new settings menu. 

In addition, we've moved the reports tab to a new modal for a snapshot of how your learners are doing in the current course. 

We've retired subtopic and topic numbers from lessons

We've retired the fields for adding topic and sub-topic numbers to lessons. For any of our users who use this feature, you simply just need to prefix a number to your topic or screen titles. 

In fact, that's exactly what we've done for topic or screen titles that previously used these fields! Yep, we've automatically prefixed these numbers to the titles for you, so there won't be anything for you to do, and nothing changes for your learners — easy!

Google SSO for Enrollment Links

We've just added support for Google SSO on the enrollment links sign-in flow, making it easier than ever for your learners to sign up for a new course. 

If your learners are already logged in with Google, then the next time they access an enrollment link, they'll automatically be logged straight into the course. This is how online training was supposed to be — easy!

Oh, and how could we forget to mention the fresh lick of paint we added in the process! 😍 

Courses in the resource library

Yes, we've finally done it — courses now appear in the resource library! 

Now you can manage all of your courses and course resources from a single page. This includes all the functionality you would expect; previewing, editing, duplicating, moving, and archiving courses.

Custom favicons and Site title

You can now add a custom favicon and site title to your workspace. This feature is available to all customers on a Coassemble subscription. 

What is a favicon and site title? 

A favicon, also known as a browser icon, shortcut icon, or bookmark icon, is a small image that represents your website. Favicons are most commonly found in your website address bar or in your browser tab followed by your site title. An example of this is shown in the image below. The image is the favicon, and the text displayed after the image is the site title.

Updated Report for Learners

We've updated the report your learners see when reviewing results, with a much cleaner design, making reading results easier. 

By default learners are presented with a summary of results for each module with the ability to drill down into lessons, quizzes, and assignments for more detailed information.
