Corporate University. Adding a lesson

This article describes how to add a lesson in the "Corporate University" application based on Bitrix 24 from Novus-HCM.


The logic for constructing educational elements in the application is as follows:

Course = any number of lessons + any number of tests. Employees have access to ONLY courses and tests, lessons are not available to employees. Courses are collected from lessons and / or tests. Tests may be available on their own or as part of courses.


If your course will consist of one lesson, then you need to create a lesson, then based on it a course from one lesson. At its core, a lesson is a module from which courses are "assembled".


Lessons can be in video tutorial format (uploaded to Youtube, Vimeo) or in SCORM and / or pdf format (for example, presentation, instruction and other teaching materials in pdf format).


Lessons, tests and courses can refer to the sections specified in the application settings. When compiling a course, you must first select a section, then tests and lessons will be selected from the same section. When changing the section of the course, its program will need to be compiled anew.


The functionality for adding, editing, deleting lessons is available only to the application moderator!


Employees can only see lessons as part of courses.

Adding a lesson is available only to the application moderator.



There are two ways to add a lesson:


  • Through the interface for adding a lesson when clicking on an element





  • By importing from a prepared lesson in an Excel template







Adding a lesson through the interface

  • Lessons in the SCORM standard need to be downloaded only and zipped in a zip archive. Another archive will not work.

  • SCORM lessons are stored on our virtual servers. They are backed up and backed up and there is no risk of losing them. When transmitted to the server and back, all information is encrypted. Unauthorized persons do not have access to your lessons.
