How to Notify Users when New Course Content is Added

In LearnWorlds, you can create and host your online courses without any technical skills. Feel free to find information on all there is to know about creating courses in this article.

Course creation can be an ongoing process for a course creator and also users maintain their interest in your online academy if you provide them with brand-new educational material regularly. 

Drip by Date

With the Drip-Feed feature, you can essentially organize the release of your course content (per course section) so that not all of your course content becomes available to your users all at once.

You can also use the Drip-Feed feature to notify users when you add new/additional course content to an existing course with already enrolled users.

You can bulk notify enrolled users when new Course Content is added via the Drip by Date, not the Drip by Days feature.

Notify Users 

After you have created your course and the course has already existing enrolled users, you may decide to add a new course section or a new learning activity to your course and notify your existing users of the new course content. You need to:

1. Go to Courses and visit the course's Course outline tab.

2. Enable the Drip feed and choose the Drip by date.

3. There you can also visit the existing course section, add a new learning activity or add a whole new section with new content. 

4. Click on the No Date Specified (or the footsteps) icon of the Drip by Date feature.

5. In the Section Edit menu that pops up, specify the date this course section will unlock for your existing enrolled users. 

6. Enable the drip feed email notification to be sent to users and inform them about the newly available course material. You will find more information here.

Once the course section is unlocked, your enrolled users will receive the drip feed notification email you have personally written related to the newly added material. You can also use variables to make the email personal and engaging.

Important Notes:

  • The notification email must include content in its subject and body otherwise, the email notification will not get delivered to users once the course section gets dripped fed.
  • The drip-feed section is unlocked, and the email is sent at 00:00 based on your school's time zone. Make sure to set up the drip-feed notification at least 24 hours before the unlock (otherwise, the email notification will not be sent).
  • If two or more sections of a single course are scheduled to be released on the same day/date, only the email notification for the last section is sent, so you will only need to set up the Send email notification option for the last section.
