The following article explains the different course schedule types available in Arlo and provides information on how to create different types of courses using the course wizard.
Before creating your course it is important to understand the different course schedule types that can be used, and how each option affects your course.
Basic courses run over part of a day, a whole day, or consecutive days.
Registrants will be registered for the whole course and they will receive one calendar appointment that lasts the entirety of the course. These courses can be face-to-face or live online (webinar style), and would have the same presenter(s) and, where required, venue, for the whole course. Presenter requests can be sent for courses using a basic schedule.
Multi-session with no choice of sessions (registrants attend all)
Multi-session courses with no choice are courses with multiple different sessions that run on different days and times. Registrants would be expected to attend all sessions.
Multi-session with no choice courses can include a mix of face-to-face and live online (webinar style) sessions and individual calendar appointments are sent for all sessions. Sessions on a multi-session course can have different presenters and venue/join links.
Multi-session with a choice of sessions
Multi-session courses with a choice of sessions are courses with multiple different sessions that run on different days and times. If required, sessions can be made to be mandatory and can be hidden from the website. Registrants will be registered on any mandatory sessions plus any sessions they select.
Multi-session courses with a choice of sessions can include a mix of face-to-face and live online (webinar style) sessions and individual calendar appointments are sent for any sessions the attendee is registered on. Sessions on a multi-session with choice course can be individually priced and they can have different presenters and venue/join links.
Arlo is set up to allow you to efficiently manage your recurring training and courses. Rather than having to copy all the same information (e.g. name, description, prerequisites) each time it is scheduled, common information about the course is stored within a course template.
Course templates can be available without any course dates to accept interest on a course, or from organisations wishing to run a course in-house.
Learn how to create a new course template without any scheduled course dates.
If you are creating a new course with a date (which you have not run before) a new template will be created automatically.
Arlo allows you to create and manage your public courses. It automatically sends booking confirmations, including calendar appointments, to registrants, venue contacts, and presenters, and all order related communication such as invoices, and receipts to the billing contact on the order.

Arlo allows you to create courses which include multiple sessions. For example, you can create and manage a course that has a complex schedule and may run over a number of days per week.

Arlo allows you to create courses which include optional sessions. For example, you can manage a course where the registrants can choose from a range of sessions that can each have their own price, or run a conference with multiple breakout sessions that registrants can select from.

Arlo allows you to create courses which are delivered online using any webinar software. We also have integrations with Zoom and GoToWebinar to make running webinars easy. With webinar courses, registrants are sent the link they can use to join the webinar as part of the course instructions.

Arlo also offers a full integration with Moodle (Learning Management System) which enables you to create modules that people can complete in their own time, online, from anywhere. These modules can include SCORM packages, quizzes, surveys, wikis, and assignments, all while tracking completion. Course completion information and grades are fed back to Arlo automatically.
With Arlo, you can provide your learners with a truly blended experience, offering sessions as a blend of face-to-face and webinars, face-to-face and self-paced elearning, webinars and self-paced elearning, or even a mix of all three options.

Arlo includes the ability to display courses on your website for which registrations are externally managed (e.g. courses for which you are a partner). Using Arlo, you can advertise these courses but direct your site visitors to the appropriate page for registration.

Arlo allows you to copy a course when creating a new one, so that you do not have to manually load sessions and options each time. Arlo will copy across the session names, presenter names, running times, descriptions, and other session-related information to the new course. You can also copy any optional extras and their related settings making it easy to create new advanced courses.
