02. Creator FAQ
I have access to an Arist classroom! What can I do?
Good question! This has a lot to do with what permissions you have. Here’s a quick breakdown:
1. Writer - Writers have the ability to create new courses and mark them as Published in the Course Builder. They can set course lengths and subjects, and add content and assessment questions.
2. Publisher - Once a writer has marked Publish on a course, a Publisher has the ability to view the course by clicking Edit and publish the course by clicking Approve. If your organization has a team of writers, the head writer or learning designer should be given Publisher permissions.
3. Distributor - Distributors have the ability to choose where and how courses are deployed. This can be managed by clicking Course Delivery in the left hand bar.
4. Analyst - Analysts can view user, course, and organization-wide engagement metrics.
5. Admin - Admins can invite users to the classroom and manage permissions.
Are there any guides on creating text courses? Where do I get started?
Of course! All writing guides and templates can be found at lrn.st/guide. Additionally, you’ll find the link to guides and everything for course support on the Getting Started tab on the left menu bar in the main dashboard. For a walkthrough, head to lrn.st/watch
Is it possible to add images to my course? How can I add them?
Yes! You can add a single image to any day, which will appear above the text. In the Course Builder, click Edit on the course under My Drafts. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and select the day you’d like to add an image to. Click on the day and select Add Media File, then select the paperclip in the top left corner to add an image. We recommend images that are no larger than 720p, since that’s a lot to text. Once you select an image, just click Upload and you’re all set!
Can I ask questions in my course to track if employees are learning?
Of course! When building in a course, you can add assessment questions and see responses and engagement metrics. In Course Builder, click Edit on your course and scroll down to the bottom of the page. Select each course day and you’ll see an option on the right to Add Assessment. Click Multiple Choice, Open Ended, or Short Answer, and from the drop down select the desired type of question. You can mark Multiple Choice questions as correct, and customize responses to learners by typing answers under Response. To see who’s, click on User List on the left menu and you can see the emails and delivery methods of your learners, as well as how far through a course they are. Click on Responses to see a list of raw responses from Users, and Analytics to view completion rates, response rates, and correct answer metrics. Keep in mind, completion is track by a text being delivered to the learner, and we recommend looking at answer accuracy rates to test completion. Make sure to include questions and reviews within courses, and use the appropriate type of assessment for the right question (e.g. not including a multiple choice question in an open ended format).
Can others outside my company take a course?
Arist courses can be made publicly accessible to members outside of your organization. If you have Distributor permissions, click on Add Course under Course Delivery. Select the courses you would like to make public and hit Next.
From here, you’ll see options to add an access code and hide the course from the main page. Your course will enter the Course Delivery menu, and the icons to the left of the course will allow for editing access and sharing. To share any course directly, click on the share icon to the right of the pencil and copy the URL.
How do I invite my team members?
If you have Admin permissions you have the ability to add team members. On the left menu in the dashboard, click on Admin List. To add a new user, click the blue Invite User button in the top left and type their email address in the box shown. You can also automatically add their permissions here. To edit or remove users, use the icons to the far right under Actions.
