Lesson 1, Topic 1
In Progress

Adding a Webinar to the Webinars Library

We already discussed how to upload a video. Recall that the preferred method is hosting it as unlisted on YouTube. Refer back to the previous lesson for a discussion of the rationale and for instructions on uploading to YouTube. Note that the video in the previous lesson also walks through creating a video topic in LearnDash, which we will explore again here.  Note that while this page will use the term “Topic”, the same process applies to Lessons exactly — just substitute “Lesson” anywhere “Topic” is encounteredRecall that the LearnDash course hierarchy is as follows: Course > Lesson > Topic. We are specifically adding a video to the Webinars Library on this page, but the process would work for any course.

1. Create a New Topic

  • Option 1: in the admin area, go to LearnDash LMS > Topics, then click the “Add New” button at the top of the page
  • Option 2: in the black bar at the top of the page, hover over “+New” and click “Topic” in the dropdown list
