When you click on the Course Editor screen, you may or may not have Multiple Matrices set up. This is used when you have more than 3 courses and you need to manage them more effectively. By splitting the courses up into multiple Matrices it will only show the courses in that Matrix for easier management and control. You can set Administrator privileges for each Matrix. For example, you may have Matrix 1 as the HR courses and Matrix 2 as the WH&S courses.
If you don’t have Matrix selected as an option you will enter the Course Content manager immediately:
Course Content Manager
On this screen, you will either have some demonstration slides or an empty matrix ready for you to start uploading your content.
View a Slide
In order to preview your slide you have just created, press on the magnifying glass to the right of the Slide. This will show you how the slide will look in your course.
View an Entire Course (Course Tools)
At the bottom of your screen, you will find the Course Index with a Preview button next to each course title.
Click on the magnifying glass so preview all the slides in that course allowing you to quickly review the content and the order of the material.
In this preview, you can also click and edit this slide on the top right of each slide. This will take you directly into that particular slide for you to edit. This feature will save you time clicking in and out of the preview to edit a slide.
If you wish to complete the course as a User to test the full functionality of the Next, I Agree and Review Slide functions, you will need to invite yourself as a User of the system and complete the course as normal.

- Choose the range of slides you'd like to copy
- Select the course matrix to copy the new slides to
- Select where you'd like to position the slab of slides
- Click ‘Copy’ and you will be taken to the copied slides.
