During the summer of 2017, we released a new Buzz UI, giving you the same features and functionality with a cleaner, simpler user experience!

Until all users have switched to the new UI, our Help Center articles will include information for both. 

Click the header below that aligns with the Buzz UI version you are using (Old UI or New UI); if you don't know which version you are using, review the differences and/or contact your system admin or Agilix account manager.

Old UI

To add content to the Digital Library for users in your domain, create a course shell and populate it with the desired content by manually creating activities or uploading Common Cartridge content.

Once the course is created, set up a subscription and the content to appears in users' Digital Library using the domain name. To users, this course appears like any other content repository from which they can pull content.

Create and populate a course shell

  1. To create a new course, follow these directions: How do I create and manage my domain courses? Choose Create New in step 2 of the linked article if you want to start with an empty course shell. The title you give the course will be used in the Digital Library.
  2. Once you've created the course, select it from the Courses screen by clicking its Course ID.
