New: Card View of Course Library

Posted March 22, 2017 by Kinda Nehlawi

For those of you who offer their users a self-registration option, we recently added a new option for viewing the Firmwater LMS course library - Cards with Images. We’re very excited to introduce this new feature as it will enhance your end users’ experience making it easier for them to select their courses.

Here is what your course library can now look like:

Looks much better, right? In order to enable this feature, first, you will need to upload images for each of the courses in your library, here’s how:

Select the course from the activities list and click on Edit. At the bottom of that page, you should see the option to upload an image.

Enable the Course Library

Now, to make that visible in the course library:

  1. Go to your Configuration tab. Select Course Library from the right-hand side menu.
  2. Under Layout > Show Library As > select Cards with images.

Tip: You can go one step further and categorize your courses based on the type of item they are. You can do so by indicating which tags you would like to use to filter them.

Add my course to the Course Library

You can add your courses to your Library by navigating to the course > edit > Self-Registration > Yes, allow students to self-register > Save Changes.

If you have any questions or comments about this new feature, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
