Creating private courses on Learnyst Course Builder.

You might not always want a course to be visible to all. In such cases, you can create a course on a course builder as private and invite students to take up that course. Only an invited can view your course.

Note: follow the blog https://blog.learnyst.com/2015/05/28/how-to-create-a-course-in-learnyst/ to create a new course on Learnyst Course Builder and your lessons to the course.

Follow the steps below to make your course private before you publish the course.

Step 1: After adding  Lessons to your Course in Course Builder  go to Settings –> Advanced Settings.
