While Workhub offers over 300 modules to improve awareness of health & safety topics. You may find there are topics your workers need to be trained on that aren't covered. Workhub allows you to upload your own content or link to content elsewhere on the web. If you have a company orientation you'd like to upload, this is generally the best place for it. If you are looking to have content created for your company, feel free to contact us and we can get you some more details on the process and pricing.

Let's get started.

Click the Online Courses icon from your Admin portal

Then select the Custom Courses tab 

Click the Create Custom Course button in the far right

This will open up a layer where you can enter some details about the course itself like the name and description, as well as the course contact. You can also upload a course image here which workers will see when selecting the course from their portal, although this is optional. Once you've entered these details, click Save Course in the top right corner. 

Your logo will already appear on certificates so you may want to upload something more related to your content. Having trouble? Search Google images with "Your Topic Icon"

Once your course has been saved, a new box will appear on this screen. You will now see a Create New Lesson button has been highlighted, and you can click to build a lesson and upload your course content.

The new lesson will open up in a separate layer. Here you can choose which format to upload your lesson in, whether it is a Youtube Video or an iFrame code to embed. You can also upload a file. The file size limit for a lesson is 200MB. Depending on your selection, you may want to enter a run time for the lesson.

Currently, you can add a file in any of the following formats 

  • External URL link

  • iFrame such as SlideShare, Prezi, Microsoft Sway, etc.

  • YouTube

  • PDF

  • PowerPoint

  • Word Doc

  • Mp4

When you're done, click Save Lesson, and a new box will appear on this screen prompting you to Add Question.

Questions are mandatory for all training. If you don't have any questions you need to ask

A new layer will open up and you can choose what kind of question you want to enter, and the answers for the question. You can also upload images for the question and answers. You can add up to 6 multiple choice answers. You may want to add an explanation of the correct answer, which will appear if the worker gets the question wrong.

Once you click Save Question you will be able to continue adding questions for this custom course. Hitting Save Lesson will bring you back to the course page where you can add additional lessons. And of course, from here, hitting Save Course will save the whole course and add it to the Course List.

The last step is to navigate back to the Course List, and enable the lessons within this course. Check off the box under Include in Course and hit Save Course.

You can also set assignments from here, or customize individual course settings.

All done! The custom course will behave as any of our provided courses now that it's been built. If you are looking to make any updates to the content or questions, you can access the course through the custom courses tab to do so. Otherwise, actions like updated the included lessons, viewing worker compliance, entering classroom training results, and changing course settings from the global default can be done by accessing it from the course list.
