You can edit your course content at any time. Course edits are automatically saved. However, edits to published courses will have to be republished before changes can be viewed in the course. Edits made to the required score, due date, or certificate will not require republishing.

If you make edits to a course with learners in progress, the learners will be redirected to the beginning of the course to get the updated content. Learners cannot view updated content until you publish your changes.

Notes:

  • Some features may be restricted based on permissions for your user role.
  • Uploaded courses can only be replaced. They cannot be edited.
