How to use a course template

Intuto has a library of 'off the shelf' courses called Templates. Templates can be used as they are, or modified to be specific to your organisation. In either case they form a solid base of content for you to share with your users.

With over 70 courses currently available in our template library, you are sure to find some relevant to your organisation. Follow the steps below to view, access and use our templates:
  1. Available Templates
  2. From the new Content Page
  3. From the original Content page
  4. Editing your Templates

Click Company Templates to see templates that have been created by an editor or admin of your site. You can make one of your courses into a template from the Content Page.

System Templates are the templates created by Intuto, often in collaboration with our partner companies.

Clicking Create will take you into the course editor where you can make any changes before publishing your course.

If you want to view the template before using it, click Preview. You can then either Exit Preview to go back to the templates page, or Use Template to be taken to the course editor.
