1 Introduction

An eCourse is a framework that stores information usually for the purpose of training or operational support. The information is stored in the form of a Book, Chapter and Page. Each page can contain quite a bit of information in a broad range of formats, including text, images, audio recordings, multimedia, PDF documents, and Word Documents, to name a few. Each Book can have multiple chapters and each Chapter can have multiple Pages. When uploading content in any format, this is displayed at the Page level. In order for a Book to be visible in the system, it must have content attached to at least one page.

3 Creating an eCourse - Assets

All information added to a page is referred to as an Asset. You can have more than one asset on a page. This could be a combination of text, images and video (or any combination thereof).

4 Creating an eCourse - Final Steps

Once your eCourse has been created (with Book, Chapters, Pages and Assets added), the final step is to make it visible to users of bxp.

By default, the author of a book already has both read and edit permissions, but for anyone else, permission must be granted.

Read permissions are for those users that simply need to access the information contained in the eCourse. Edit permissions are available for those people whom you wish to be able to change information in the eCourse.

NB This is not recommended for everyone.

PLEASE NOTE: This function is available through the eCourse Console, mentioned above
