In Cerego, you’ll see what we call Courses. This is the traditional meaning of a course. For example, Sociology 101 is an example of a course name. To create a course, you’ll add what we call Assignments. You may also see assignments referred to as sets or modules. In your experience, you may call these chapters or sections. The thing to remember: Assignments are the pieces of content that make up your course. An example: A Sociology 101 course could have assignments including Race, Nationality, and Ethnicity; Social Movements; Sociology of Gender and Sexuality; Mass Media; Youth Cultures - and more.
Once you’ve created a course, you’ll assign it to learners - then track learners’ progress to reach goals.
To learn how to create a course, we highly recommend this video. It does a great job of walking through the process.
We’ll go ahead and write out the steps too.
STEPS: Creating a Course
- When logged into Cerego, go to the Cerego logo on the top left of your screen. In the dropdown menu, click on “Courses.”
- On the next page that pulls up, you’ll see a green rectangle that says “Create a Course” on the top right. Click on that.
- Write a Course title. Keep it simple and short. Don’t try to be creative. Write the subject, or topic. “Sociology 101” for example.
- Write a Course Description. You want this to be a straightforward and brief summary. Tell learners what they’ll study and state the course objective. Example for Sociology 101: “This course serves as an introduction to Sociology. Learners will complete the following assignments to develop a basic understanding of Sociology: Race, Nationality, and Ethnicity; Social Movements; Sociology of Gender and Sexuality; Mass Media; and Youth Cultures
- Add a photo that visually tells learns what the course is about.
- Click “Create Course.”
Your course won’t be published yet - that happens after you’ve added assignments and go through the publishing process. You can find what you have under the “unpublished” section in the Courses tab.
