What's in it for you
Once you've published a course, you have the flexibility to edit some aspects of the course but not all. The functionality to edit courses can be beneficial, particularly in the Learn modules, to adjust and add information after gathering feedback from managers and learners. Below you will gain a better understanding of what can be edited after a course is published, section by section.

See how it's done
To edit a course after it's been published, navigate to the Courses tab in the admin dashboard. Select the course you wish to edit.
In most cases, if you attempt to edit an aspect of a course that is unable to be changed after publication the option is greyed out. A message might also appear when you hover over a section to let you know a feature cannot be changed.
In Course Setup, you have the flexibility to edit the following aspects after the course has been published:
- Course Title
- Course Owner
You cannot edit SCORM.
In the second step of Course Setup, Add Modules, you have the ability to add or delete a Learn module, add or delete a Test/Survey module, or delete a Pitch IQ module. If the course has already been published without a Pitch IQ, you cannot add one.
In the third step of Course Setup, Course Options, use the toggles to change any of the settings except Show Social and Pitch activity across groups. This option is only editable while the course is in development. To save any changes you've made, be sure to click Save when you're done.
In the second step of Course creation, you can edit and add to the Learn module. Here you can:
- Edit the permission toggles for Learn content
- Edit Learn content
- Edit and add new lessons and sections
- Edit or delete a Live Traning
In the first part of creating a test, you can edit all of the general options except the Mode. This means cannot change the test from Survey to Exam or vice versa.
In the Build Test section, you can add questions, as well as edit questions and answers. You cannot delete questions. This maintains the integrity of reporting, especially in the case that some learners have already completed a test.
In the Award and Accolade section, you can edit the Accolade Title, change the image, update the minimum passing score, and update the Send Certification toggle. Click Save when you're done.
In the Pitch IQ Set up you can edit the pitch description, if downloads are allowed, and the Target Time. You cannot change the Pitch IQ Type.
For Pitch IQ Scoring, you can edit the Passing Score and the number of Pitches on Leaderboard. You cannot edit the Offical Scorer type, minimum number of Peer Reviewers, or the Pitch IQ Metrics.
Lastly, in the Pitch IQ Panel section, you can add or remove admins assigned to review the pitch. You can also change if the pitch is auto-assigned to managers who's groups are assigned to the Pitch IQ. If Auto-assign managers is toggled to Yes, you cannot remove the assigned managers from the panel.
When you're done editing the course, click Save.
