How to Edit the Access of your Courses

Creating, arranging, and personalizing content within a course on LearnWorlds is a straightforward process. After you create a course, you will see the course editing tabs, which offer several options for editing.

In this article, we will provide a comprehensive overview of the Access tab within a LearnWorlds course, demonstrating how course access can be modified and customized.


On the course’s settings, navigate to the Access tab to manage crucial configurations for each course effectively.

Choose/Change the Course Access

You can select the course’s type. Even if you had given a course type, you can later change it and Edit the Access of your Courses.

  • If you change a course type from Free to Paid, Private, Draft, or Coming Soon, users who were previously enrolled in the course will be unenrolled. Users must purchase the course to regain access to the Paid and Private access types. Access can also be reinstated if you revert the course's price back to free.
  • If users are enrolled in a Paid or Enrollment Closed course and the status changes to Free or Private, they will not lose access.

Find the Course’s Public URL/Course ID

You can find and copy the course’s Public URL (not the authoring URL), the Course's ID, and the Mobile ID.

Change the Course's Slug

While creating a new course, you have the flexibility to select both the title and the public URL/slug for the course. However, it's important to note that you can modify the course slug at a later time if needed. You can find all the details in this article.

Expiration Date

You can set up your course's expiration date (days, weeks, months).

After Purchase Navigation

While your goal is to sell your courses easily, you should not forget that the after-purchase steps of the user have to be correctly predicted as well. This is a great moment to up-sell another course or to redirect the user straight to the course player. Decide whether, after the payment, the user will be redirected to:

You can apply the same after purchasing navigation to all courses by clicking on Apply to all Courses.

In Free courses, the After purchase navigation does not apply. You can check here the different types of courses in LearnWorlds.
The After Purchase Navigation, if you have connected to Shopify, is different, so navigate to our relevant article for more information.
