Before starting to upload your first courses, we recommend that you customize your school from the “Settings” section. There you will find all the tools to shape your training platform and adapt it to your needs.
In Settings you will find different sections. Let’s see briefly what you will find in each of them.
Domain and accessibility
In domain and accessibility you can activate or deactivate your online platform. An active platform means that any user can access it through the URL or through web search engines.
We recommend that you activate the platform once it is fully configured and you have added all your courses and/or tests.
Here you can also select the country, time zone and currency of your training platform. The information of the courses and the sending emails will be based on this.
Another aspect that you can configure in this section is the name of the project and the domain. You can change the subdomain of your project (with the main domain .foxizecloud.com) or request a change of domain to support (only available once the trial period has finished). Keep in mind that if you change the domain while you have the web activated, you must notify your users and change previous links.
Finally, in Web Accessibility you can choose if you want your website to be publicly accessible or limit it to an intranet.
Having a public website means that your school will be accessible to all the public and they will be able to consult all the contents and courses published on the website, but they must register to take them. This option is often used for commercial schools.
If you have a closed website, it means that your school will function as an internet. Access to all content will only be given to users who are previously registered and who have an specific email ending address that we must enter. This option is often used for company training.
In this section you can write down the contact details of your school that your users will see. It is not mandatory to fill in the fields, but having a way to contact you gives more credibility to your platform.
Email: your users will be able to check your email on different sites in the school, such as in the footer and in the course file.
Sender email: it will be the sender email from which the automatic and manual emails will be sent through the platform. the sender email can be changed, in this article we explain to you how.
Phone number: the telephone number will appear in the header of the web.
Postal address: it will be displayed in the footer of your website. If you write a second address it will also appear on the contact page.
Training and complements
In the training and complements section you will find everything you need to configure the courses on your platform.
On one hand, you can select the types of courses you want to offer on the platform, online ann/or in person.
On the other hand, in Training complements you can activate or deactivate functions related to the operation of the courses, communication part, course recommendation, course editions, webinars, course evaluations, etc…
User registration to the platform is mandatory, especially to be able to keep track of their inscriptions, progress and communications. In the registration field section you will be able to add and modify the different fields that users must fill in when they register.
There are a series of fields that are mandatory and cannot be modified, such as the name, email and password, but you can create new custom fields of text type, numeric, checkbox, validator, according to the needs of your platform. You can learn more about the different registration parameters in this guide.
In this section you will also find the boxes to edit messages related to cookies and legal and privacy footnotes of your platform. We provide standard texts but we recommend that you customize them.
In this section you must choose if you want to offer the courses for free or for payment.
Free courses: prices will not appear and users will not have to go through the payment gateway when signing up for a course.
Payment courses: you can configure if you want the price of the courses to appear, and also users must go through the payment gateway to formalize the inscription for the course.
Digital Marketing is very important for your training platform because it will allow you to know and control the audience of your website, study what content generates more traffic and generate a good search engine positioning, among other reasons.
In this section you will be able to install Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager simply by entering a code. You will be able to see how web SEO works and configure the social networks of your business. In this guide we explain it to you in more detail.
The training platform allows you to automatically send emails to students and teachers, related to their activity. In this section you can configure which emails you want your users to receive and which ones they do not.
Emails associated with the activity of the platform: registration, password change…
Emails addressed to students for their activity: reminders to take a course, comments, responses in forums, evaluated materials.
Emails addressed to teachers for their activity: reminders, comments…
Emails addressed to users within an Unlimited project service: reminders of the service.
If you want to know more about automated emails, we recommend that you read this guide.
In this setting section you can edit the main web navigation menu (it contains all the sections of your web page), which appears on the left side of the header (the hamburger menu).
You can order, or activate/deactivate pages to make them visible or not. Also in this section you can choose the type of footer of the platform between simple or complete.
In the design section you can customize your platform with the look and feel you want to give your school. You will be able to add your organization’s logo, customize the web favicon and select the corporate colors that will be used in the different sections of your school, such as “courses” or “about me”.
In page edition you can manage the pages that will appear on your website and modify the titles and texts of each of them. Each module on the page is limited by a red margin that will appear when you hover over it. You have to bear in mind that the structural elements that come with the templates cannot be modified.
In this guide you will find all the relevant information about the “Appearance” section.
