New Look to My Courses Page
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Facebook Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost   21 days ago

By popular demand, I spent some time today upgrading the My Courses page. Now, in addition to the old grid-style list you can get that shows just the courses you have purchased, you can also browse by Groups.

The first screen shows a list of all of the available group types (Access, Word, Excel, etc.) Some of the less popular topics like QuickBooks, Internet, and Digital Photography were grouped under Miscellaneous.

Once you select a group, you can pick the sub-group. These include different versions of the software, and also separates seminars and templates.

Next is the level category, such as Beginner, Expert, Developer, etc. For older classes you'll see 100-level, 200-level, etc.

Next is the list of courses themselves. Any course you have purchased will show up in bold

Finally, you will see the information for that course: name, description, whether or not it's available (vs. waiting list items), in your library (purchased). For the new courses you'll get a link to the Course Lessons Page. This is the main info page for that course where you can view the lessons, which may be the same as the Forum Page (I left them both for backward compatibilty with the old lessons so as not to confuse anyone). New courses have the download ZIP file on the Course Page, and don't require a password. Same with the handbooks.

Older lessons will give you a link to the Theater to watch that class. A forum link, a link to the complete outline page, and links to download the handbooks, with passwords.

As always, if you have any questions about how any of this works, or have any suggestions for improvements, please let me know. Thanks!

Richard

P.S. Yes, I know it's not very pretty right now. Let me make sure everything is working first and that you guys don't have any major changes you want made, and then I'll pretty it up. Function before form. :)
