As the Root Admin, you have access to and control over every aspect of your Dawn Learning Site.

This guide will help you learn about Dawn as you:

  1. Brand your Dawn Learning Site
  2. Add Authors and Coaches and Administrators
  3. Add payment information
  4. Invite individual learners to join
  5. Set up Organizations

1. Brand your Dawn Learning Site

First, you'll want to make sure your site looks professional. Dawn enables you to easily build a branded experience for your learners (only Root admins have access to this tab).

To brand your site, make sure you're in the Administrator view and complete the fields on the Site management screen.

2. Add Authors and Coaches and Administrators

As you grow your site, you will need additional administrators, authors, and coaches.

3. Add payment information

Courses can be paid for in two ways:

  • Individual payer: By default, Dawn is designed to allow learners to purchase courses by connecting with a Stripe, We Chat Pay, or Alipay account.  
  • District/Organizational purchase orders: You can enroll students in bulk and pay for enrollments with a purchase order if you set up an Organization (covered in Set up Organizations).

4. Invite individual learners to join

Admins can invite people to join their site with the Learners screen. Anyone who needs access to your site (Administrators, Authors, Coachers, or Learners) needs to be invited.

How do I invite people to join my site?

5. Set up Organizations

Organizations are entities, like school districts or businesses, that want to purchase course enrollments in bulk for their members, so the members don't have to pay for them individually.

Organization Administrators can use purchase orders to create enrollments for their members and track the progress of those enrollments. Site administrators create the purchase orders for organization use when contracts are signed outside of the Dawn system.

How do I set up organizational purchase orders?

On this screen, you can:

  1. Add organizations, providing:
    • Name
    • Email
    • Avatar (300x300)
    • Description
  2. Edit organization information.
  3. Delete organizations.
  4. Click an organization to review and edit Administrators, Enrollments, and Purchase orders.

Administrators screen

On the Administrators screen, you can:

  1. Make existing Dawn users Organization Administrators. If you can't find the user, invite them to your site.  
  2. Review user feeds.
  3. Remove Administrators from the Organization.
