Option 1: Create a standard course along with download folder and the possibility to communicate

If you are creating an OLAT course for the very first time, only the first option in the selection menu ("Standard course ...") will come into question.


Conventional Course

A template provided by the OLAT team is used for this course.
This template has:

People who cannot book the event via the UZH module booking system but can still take part in your event and use the material (e.g. auditors) can register for your OLAT campus course via "Registration".
With the mail form "@OLAT-Support" you can send a message to OLAT support directly from your course.

The following settings are used for this creation option:

  • Publication status: Published (participants will see the course immediately under "Courses" - "My courses")
  • Access: Open without booking (the course can be found and accessed using the course search)

The campus course is immediately ready for use.

Learning Path

A template provided by the OLAT team is used for this course.

Info

This template is very different from the template for conventional campus courses. Reworking is mandatory, as no template can be provided that can generally be used for all UZH courses with learning path courses. Further information at Learning Path Campus Courses.

This template has:

People who cannot book the event via the UZH module booking system but can still take part in your event and use the material (e.g. auditors) can register for your OLAT campus course via "Registration".

The information in the course element "Instruction for lecturers" can also be found in the article "Learning path campus courses". Please consider which course elements seem to make sense didactically and methodologically for your learning path campus course.

The following settings are used for this creation option:

  • Publication status: Preparation
  • Access: Open without booking (the course can be found and accessed using the course search)

The campus course is not yet ready to be published (For further inforamtion see Learning Path Campus Course).

Info

Campus courses that are created with the standard template (the first option) appear immediately after creation in the "Authoring" under "My learning resources)" and in the "Courses" area under "My courses".
