Welcome to Agilix Dawn!

An overview of Dawn (Admin, Author, and Coach views)

  • Updated:

Dawn enables educators to publish high-quality teacher development content into a market catalog where teachers can find it, buy it, and complete it.  

Whether you want to publish a single course or build a marketplace of content, Dawn provides the ecommerce capabilities and brandable solution you need to create a sustainable business that lifelong learners can depend on.

In addition to the functionality necessary to browse, enroll in, and take courses (which all users have), Dawn provides views for specific functional roles. These include:

  • Administrator view: The administrator view gives users access to all course, user, and publisher data.
  • Author view: The author view allows users to create courses in your website and access data for other courses authored on your site.
  • Coach view: The coach view lists projects and feeds that are assigned to the coach.

You can switch between views using

  1. The user menu.
  2. The buttons on the course card (which you access on a course card by clicking Home).
