Creating a Course

This article shows how to create a course within your Teachable school.

NOTE: After you create your school, you will immediately be prompted to create your first course. However, you don’t need to do this right away; you can always come back later to create your first course or add additional courses at any time.

Creating Your First Course

There are two ways to create your first course: through your school's dashboard as a new user and through your school's admin sidebar.

Creating Your First Course On Your School's Dashboard

  1. Log in to your Teachable school.
  2. Click Create a course, which appears right in the Dashboard after you log in. admin_onboarding_course.png

Course Information

Regardless of when you create your course or how many courses you have, course information remains the same.

Every time you create a course, you are prompted to fill in the following information:

  • The Name of the course
  • The course Author
  • A Subtitle, or short sentence describing the course
  • The course Description, a longer summary of what the course includes

Learn more about adding, and editing, course information here.

NOTE: Name and Author are the only required fields. However, we suggest adding other information to help prospective students decide if the course is right for them.

Deleting a Course

You can delete a course at anytime by selecting your course from the admin sidebar and clicking Delete from the upper navigation.
