Content Controller: Creating a New Version of a Course


1. Select Content

2. Select Courses

3. Select the course you wish to version.

4. Select + Version

5. Browse for the new course version on your local machine. There's also a space to add a change log

Note: A new version of a course must be in the same standard as the original course.

6. Select Import Course

7. A pop up will appear if your import was successful.

Back on the Course Details pane, you can see that the new version has been created.

The version ID is assigned by Content Controller, but you can edit this if your organization has an internal version identification system. To do this, hover over the version, select Details, select Edit, and make your changes before saving. 

8. You can test the new version by hovering over the version and selecting Test. Any configuration you've applied to the original course will be carried over to the new version by default, but you can make changes if necessary to a specific version. 

9. Publishing the new version will make that version the one that launches for learners. To do this, hover over the version and select Publish. Before it goes live, you'll have the opportunity to decide how to handle learners that are in-progress on a previous version.

If a change was minor, like a typo, you may want to let learners that are in-progress continue on the previous version. If so, select Maintain Progress.

If a change was more significant, you may want all learners - new launches and those who had previously launched it - to be forced to start the new version from the beginning. If so, select Restart.

10. You can always determine which version of a course is currently published in one of two ways. Under Details, the version ID will be next to Published Version. Under Versions, the published version will be highlighted in blue.
