What are Course Sections and Lessons?

Course Sections

You have three content types to build your Course:

Sections allow you to break up your Course and organize similar materials in one place. Each Section serves as the mini overview for a specific part of your Course, and each section contains Lessons. You can create up to 500 Sections and/or Lessons within each Course you create in your Mighty Network.

Add a Section

When you first create your Course, you'll see an empty Table of Contents page with the option to Add an Overview, Lesson, and/or Section.

To add a Section, go to Table of Contents > Add Section

After you save a Section, you'll have the option to:

  • Add and/or Re-order Lessons
  • Make it Hidden or Visible
  • Add a Rule for Unlocking (based on finishing the Overview or another Lesson)
  • Add a Completion button
  • Edit the Thumbnail
  • Choose to Preview to visitors

You'll get to these options from Manage Section Settings for that Section.

Add a Section to an Existing Course

Once you have Lessons and Sections, you'll continue to add new Lessons and Sections from the Table of Contents at the bottom of the page:
