Lessons are a place for you to start building out your actual course material. You can include text, images, video, audio, PDFs, and virtually any other type of third-party or embeddable content. This section will explain everything you can do with Learnum lessons.

Add New Lesson

You can create new lessons via the Learnum Course Builder. You can either edit or create a new course and add new lessons from the Curriculum tab.
Enter the title of your lesson and click on the add icon.
The new lesson is created. Now it's time to add some content and complete the settings.

Lesson Settings

Hover over the lesson bar to reveal the action buttons. You can edit and remove lessons via those buttons.
The Lesson Settings section allows you to choose:
  • Lesson Type - Text, Video, Slide, Stream, and Zoom Conference.
  • Unlock the lesson after a certain time after the purchase - enable it if the lesson should be accessible after certain days since the purchase date.
  • Lesson start and time - Set a start date and time for your lesson. Those settings belong to Stream and Zoom Conference lesson types.
  • Lesson video poster - A banner image that displays in a video frame. Required for Video type lessons.
  • Lesson video URL - Enter an embedded URL of your videos.
  • Lesson Duration - Add duration information for your lesson.
  • Lesson Preview - Allows website users to preview the content of your lesson.
  • Lesson Frontend Description - Short description text for your lesson. Visible on the course overview page.
  • Lesson Materials - attach downloadable files to your lesson. Learn more about how to use lesson materials.

Lesson Content

Everything below the lesson title is a blank canvas for you to add your content.
Add text, insert images, embed videos or other multimedia content, link to PDFs or audio files… the possibilities are endless. You have full control over the type of learning experience you deliver to your users. You can add as much content as you like.
If you are adding file embeds such as YouTube videos or SoundCloud audios, you have to make sure that these are publicly viewable. Otherwise, they won’t be able to be played by your users. Please refer to your host website’s rules and policies on embedding files.

Video Lesson

There are 2 ways for adding videos to lessons, via the Lesson Settings and Lesson Content.
When you select a Video type, the video player will display directly below the lesson title. In this case, you need to add a video URL to the Lesson video URL field. Whereas, in a Text type lesson you can add a video to any part of the overall content.
Note: Lesson video poster is required for Video type lessons.

How to get video URL

Lessons accept embed URL format only. For example, you want to add a video from Youtube. Open the video page and find the Share button just under the player.
Click on it and from the provided options select Embed.
Select the URL as shown below, the link must include ‘embed’ word.

How to add video to lesson

The copied URL can be added to the Video Lesson URL field in the Lesson Settings tab.
Also, you can add the URL directly to the Lesson Content via the Lesson Editor. Open the Insert menu on the control panel and select Media.
Now you will be offered several options of how to insert media, or video in our case: General, Embed, Advanced. Switch to the General tab. There is a Source box where you need to paste the copied URL.
Alternatively, you can copy the whole code on the YouTube share window.
And paste it into the Embed tab.

Slide Lesson

Besides video, you can create Slide lessons. The process is the same as adding videos. First, you need to upload your slides to the preferred slide hosting services such as,, or any other service that provides sharing options.
After, open the desired slide page and click on the Share icon to reveal sharing options.
Some services offer an Embed button instead.
Next, copy the provided embed code. Code should be wrapped with an iframe tag.
Then, edit your lesson on the Course Builder and select Slide for the type of lesson.
Open the Lesson Content. In the lesson editor, open the Insert menu on the control panel and select Media.
Switch to the Embed tab and paste the slide code.
You can add additional content before and after the embed code frame. Finally, save your changes via the Save Changes button. That's it!

Stream Lesson

The Stream lesson allows you to stream in online mode. Live streaming is being held through third-party video streaming services such as YouTube and Vimeo. With the Live Streaming feature, you will be able to interact with your students on the highest level as they will follow the study materials, add their comments and questions in the Live Chat (if supported by streaming service) and give feedback immediately.
Learn more about how to create a live stream on YouTube and Vimeo.
Preview or open your live stream on the preferred streaming service account, i.e. YouTube studio account, and click on the Share button.
Note: Set the privacy option to Unlisted, so users who enrolled in your course will have access to your live stream.
Now copy a video link.
And add the link to the address bar of your browser to open the stream on the "watch" view.
Then click on the Share button and from the provided options select Embed.
Copy the URL as shown below, the link must include ‘embed’ word.
Go to Lesson Settings and select Stream for the type of lesson. Enter data such as stream start date, stream start time, and scroll down to the Lesson Video URL to add the copied link.
Note: Students will see the countdown till the start time. For the correctness of the countdown pay attention to the Time Zone you set in Learnum Settings.

Zoom Lesson

Create and manage online meetings directly from your LMS. Use an activity where all your learners can participate simultaneously. It’s real-time, highly interactive, and very social.
Note: It is important to set up the Zoom settings in Learnum Settings before starting to add/create Zoom Conference lessons.
In the Course Builder, go to the Curriculum, find the needed lesson, and go to Lesson Settings. Select Zoom Conference type from the options available in the dropdown menu.
Choose the date, time, and time zone for your meeting. Select any other settings you would like to use.
Students can join directly on your website or via the official Zoom App.
