Topics are very important and efficient ways to categorize courses on Thinkzoom. Whether they are pre-built Topics or fully custom Topics that you create, they will always accessible from the main menu or through a quick search using the search bar up top.
But how do you create and manage new Topic pages? That’s what this tutorial will help you with.
Let’s say you want to create a custom Topic page for a handful of off-the-shelf courses as well as some of your own custom content. To create a custom Topic page, click on Topics from the main menu.
After the page refreshes, locate the blue + Create a Topic link above the listed Topics and click it.
Give your topic a name a description and then hit Create Topic to refresh the page. With your new Topic page created, you’re now able to associate courses to it.
Pick any course and go into its editing settings by clicking the orange pencil icon below the video player.
From the editing screen, select the fourth option titled, Associations. This area is where you can tag courses to certain Groups, Tracks, or Topics. Go down to Topics and type in the name of the newly created Topic and add it.
Another thing to note is you can also create a new Topic page from this screen as well. If you start to type an unrecognizable Topic in the search field, Thinkzoom will prompt you with “Create [New Topic Name].” To create the new Topic, click that prompt.
Once you’re satisfied, click Next and then hit Update Course to save the changes and officially tag that course to your new Topic. Repeat this same process for other courses you want to add to the new Topic.
