Add content to your course

CourseLit uses a concept called Lesson. It is very similar to what we generally see in books i.e. A large piece of information divides into smaller chunks called lessons.

Similarly, you can break down you course into Lessons and group the lessons into Sections.


CourseLit supports eight types of lessons, which are as follows.

  1. Text

    For sharing textual content.

  2. Video

    For sharing video lectures.

  3. Audio

    For sharing quick audio recordings.

  4. PDF

    For sharing premade resources.

  5. Embed

    For sharing external links like YouTube videos etc.

  6. File

    For sharing binary files like a zip file containing an assingment with the students.

  7. Quiz

    For quizzing your students. You can create graded and non-graded quizzes.

    See the guide to add a quiz.
