How To Activate the LearnDash Course Builder

It got a lot easier creating and selling courses with LearnDash.  This summer a drag and drop course builder was introduced – but it’s not active by default.

This quick step by step guide shows you how to activate the LearnDash Course Builder

First List Your Courses

Select the Courses sub-menu from the main LearnDash menu in the WordPress Admin Dashboard.  This displays the list of courses you have already created.

Edit an Existing Course

If you aren’t sure what the course builder is and to check to see if it’s already active first create or edit an existing course.

I’m assuming that you’ve  already created a course, if not create one and come back to this session.  If you have a existing course select edit form the courses local menu.

Enable the Course Builder
