Then, a dialog pops up for you to log in to your ActivePresenter Online account. When publishing your course to LMS, if you choose “Make this course accessible to everyone”, it will be publicly uploaded. This means everyone can access the course without logging in.

Enroll Learners in the Course

You have created an eLearning course and uploaded it to ActivePresenter Online. Let’s learn how to enroll learners in a course in this part. There are several methods of enrolling learners into courses once they have logged in to ActivePresenter Online. 

Manual Enrolment   

The first way of enrolling learners into courses is Manual enrolment. Open the course that you want to enroll learners in > click the Gear icon at the top right corner of the screen > select Participants.

Click the Enrol users button, then a dialog will show up. Here you type learners’ names into the Select users section, then click Enrol users to finish.

Enroll users

After enrolling learners in your course, you can send messages/emails or a course link to notify them. ActivePresenter Online gives you the ability to send an email message to all the learners who are enrolled in your course. You can use the Participants list to send a message as follows:

  1. Open your course > Settings (gear icon) > Participants.
  2. Select the checkbox next to one or more learners > choose from the drop-down menu “Send a message”. 
Send an email message to learners
  1. Compose your message and click the “Send message to x people” button. 

This process sends a message to each learner. They receive it by default in one of the following ways:

  • If they are Online, it pops up as a message and goes into their Messages folder.
  • If they are Offline, then it goes into their Messages folder and is sent as an email. 
  • There is No subject or context on the message, so you should include the name of the course in the message to give it a context.
