More about digital products and courses


It's important to understand that while all courses are digital products, not all digital products are courses. For example, you can deliver graphic templates, software, downloadable ebooks, info sheets, and helpful resources as digital products without them being courses.


We allow you to create your lessons in whatever way works best for you. In a single lesson, you can include multiple videos or PDF documents, links, and rich text. The text, links, images, and videos can also be arranged in any sequence you prefer.

Let's look at how to add different types of content to your product. 


๐Ÿ“‘  Note: Whether you're creating a digital product or a course, you'll create module/s and add content to lesson/s to provide structure to your product.


How to add rich content, links, and images
