Ready to launch your course to the public? Visitors to your site will be able to self-enroll by visiting your Library, selecting a course, and hitting the "Take Course" button. 

Make your course public

If you don't have a Cohort yet, start by creating one.

  1. Open your Cohort and select the three dots (...) at the top of the course Path directly under the name of the course. This will open a menu with additional options.

  2. Select "Configure cohort" from the menu.

  3. If you select "Public," this course will appear on your Library for anyone who visits your school; they will not need to sign in to preview the course. 

Visibility and accessibility of the Library

Until you create your first public cohort, your school URL will bring people to a sign-in screen. After creating a public cohort, your school URL will bring people directly to your Library. 

Registration through the Library

Once you've made at least one course Public, learners will be able to go to your school URL and register in public courses directly from your Library by selecting the "Take Course" button. When they register, they will be prompted to create an account and pay any price you have set on the course. 

You can also copy the URL from a specific course's "About" page to share on your external website or on social media. Learners will be able to review information about the course, choose from among multiple offerings if applicable, and then click the "Take Course" button to register.
