A Template is a pre-designed page you can use to quickly add content to your course. With Templates, the design process is taken care of for you so all you need to do is enter your information into the form and click, "Done". The Template will even adapt its use of colors and fonts to match your course's Theme.
Once you've created your new page from a template, you can always return to the Forms View editing panel by selecting the Template button then selecting Edit Template. You can also edit content directly on the stage, like any Claro page. Remember, you might have to unlock some layers to be able to make changes.
Create Your Own
What’s also great is that you aren’t limited to just the System Templates that we provide in Claro – you can create your own Templates as well.
Don't Worry: Any edits to an existing Template will not result in changes to course pages already created from that Template. Templates and the course pages created from them are completely separate entities—changes to one have zero impact on the other.
Permissions and Access to Custom Template Libraries
Like courses, Template Libraries are tied to Claro’s roles to determine access permissions.
- Administrators can make new Template Libraries and open and edit any other Template Libraries that have been made.
- Authors can make new Template Libraries, and can use published Templates from any Library when authoring courses. Authors can only open and edit Template Libraries that they didn’t create if they’ve been assigned to them. The assign process is the same for course authoring.
What's the difference between System, Global and Project Template Libraries?
Claro comes standard with a variety of pre-built templates for you to use. These are part of the System Template Library and are available to all Claro users.
