A new block, under the name Promoted Courses, has been added to the academy’s home page for every user.
To manage promoted course as an Admin, you have access to your Academy Settings through the Admin panel of your Academy. Simply select Admin from the upper navigation bar and then Academy Settings. Under Advanced Settings you can find all available settings for your academy. In order to enable Promoted Courses, navigate to the Home Page Configuration tab and enable the corresponding setting.
As soon as the setting is enabled you can choose which four courses should be listed as promoted courses. From the admin panel select Online Training and then Course Listings. All courses will be displayed and you can select the ones you want to be promoted. Please bear in mind that Private courses even if selected as promoted do not populate at the promoted courses block. Courses need to be public. Decentralized categories courses will be hidden from this page as well.
Up to four courses can be shown on every user’s home page. For a course to populate as a promoted course at a user’s home page, the user should not be already enrolled in the course.
Please note: Course category visibility rules outweigh promoted courses setup. For example, a course set as promoted course, part of a category not visible to all employees, won't populate at the promoted courses block for an employee.
