Course Creation Options

During this stage of your course creation, it's time to decide if you want to manually create your course or import content. Within a BenchPrep course, you can use a combination of both. However, if you choose to use import data, we recommend having someone who is proficient with importing, populating spreadsheets, and HTML to assist with this process. Continue reading below to learn about the ways you can create content to help you make a decision on how you want to get content into your course.

 

How Can You Add Content? 

There are three ways that you can add content to your BenchPrep courses:

 

  • Manual - Enter in the information into BluePrint. We recommended this option if you want to create a BenchPrep Course and are not familiar with data imports. Additionally, this may prove to be faster than importing as you can create the content right within BluePrint, instead of compiling and configuring spreadsheets for importing.

  • Data Import - We recommend you use this option if your course content is properly formatted and ready to be imported. We also recommend the assistance of someone who is familiar with importing and HTML. Make sure to take time to read through all of our import articles in our Knowledge Base before moving forward.

  • Content Replication - Once you have courses published, you can add content through replication (making a copy) from an existing course. This will save you time in the future if you have existing content that you want to add to a new course.

Data Import Content Preparedness Checklist

As you begin to gather your content for data import, ask yourself these questions:

  • Is your content market ready or do you need to make any edits before creating/uploading?

  • How frequently will you need to update your content?

  • If you are going to use our import option, is your content in the correct format?

  • How many questions do you want to include?

  • How do you hope to improve upon the learning experience in moving your content onto our platform?

  • Is your content organized into topic sections, categories, or other organizational levels?  Do you understand how each piece of content maps to these categories/levels?

  • Which content types (lessons, flashcards, practice questions, exams) do you have in each course?

  • How many flashcards and questions do you see existing by the course launch date?

  • If known/possible to estimate based on a finished sample: how many lessons do you see existing by course launch?

If you are not sure where to start, now is a great time to take advantage of our Professional Services team. Our specialized team can help strategize and bring your content and courses to life. We also offer training packages with access to a live instructor to help guide you through setting up your courses and tenant.
