Having a course is no fun without learners. Luckily, there are multiple ways to invite them to your course 📩
When you're in your course you can find the Participants page on the top right corner of your screen. This is where you can invite learners to your course. When you've invited participants to your course, they will be listed on the course participants page and they will be added to the Institution's participant page if they are new to your institution.
You can invite participants in many different ways.
By sharing a link
Share the course link (private or public) that's showing at the top left of the participants page. Learners can use the link to join your course. Learners can use an existing account or create a new account if it's their first time using Eduflow.
Enrolling with a private course link
If you set the Course link to Private, you get a link that you can share with learners privately. When they use that link, they are able to enroll themselves in your course. Note that they should only use this link for the first time they enroll in the course.
Enrolling with a public course link and landing page
If you set the Course link to Public, a public landing page will automatically be created for your course. You can share the link to the public landing page to share information about your course. The public landing page will automatically include a button for learners to enroll themselves in this course.
By email invitation (available on any paid plan)
You can invite learners with an email invitation automatically sent to their email. There are two ways to add learners:
Add learners manually. Click on Invite participants, then Invite learners, and then type their name and email.
Bulk import learners using a .csv file. Click on Invite participants then selecting the File import tab. The .csv file needs to be formatted with two columns: Firstname Lastname, [email protected]. Here's an example of the .csv file setup.
Sending email invitations
When inviting learners you can choose to send email invitations now or later. If you want to send email invitations later, select the option to not send invitations when adding participants to your course. When it's time to send the email invitations, you can select send invites to invite all learners at once who are not already enrolled. If you want to send the email invitation individually, click on the 3 dots next a learners name and click send invite to that specific learner.
Editing the Participants List
To edit participant details, locate the participant on the list and click the 3 dots to the right of the learners status. Options will open to send the individual email invitation, to edit participant (name), add a tag, login as or remove the learner.
