New Courses Shelf in Library

You may have already noticed the new Courses shelf in the library. Thanks to those of you who made this suggestion. We are hoping Courses will provide a little structure for our members as they try to choose lessons to study. This is the first in a series of changes we are going to make to improve our library for everyone. We hope we can get your help.The idea is simple. Any member of LingQ will have an opportunity to  group any lessons they choose together in a Course. These courses will be displayed in the newly created Courses shelf.

Courses could be for beginners, on grammar, on pronunciation, or on specific subjects like, history, literature, cooking, business etc.. We have started creating some courses. We are looking forward to seeing more courses created by our members. Thank you for your help.

To create a Course of your own, follow the steps below.

  • Go to the Import page under Lessons and then click “Import Course”.
  • Ensure you’re in the correct language then click “Continue”
  • Add a Title, Description and Image and click “Save”.
  • Add the lesson location (url’s) for the lessons you want to add to your course. You can add any lessons you like, no matter the provider. You can find the lesson url in the following two ways:
  • Open the collection popup in the library and right click on the “Open” button for the lesson you want. You will be able to save the link url.

  • If you are not in the Libraryview but are on the collection page instead, right click on the lesson title or Take or Open button and save the link url.
  • Return to your Course and paste those url’s into the lesson fields.
