Using Whop, you’ll have access to everything you need to create and sell your online course. Design your course, edit your course lessons, manage your customers, bundle additional content into your course, and more.

Creating a course product

To start selling your course, you must create a new product on the Whop dashboard by selecting ‘Courses’ in the ‘What’s included?’ pop-up.

Creating a course product

If you don't see a course here, clicking on ‘Go to Courses’ will take you to the ‘Courses’ platform where you can create your first course, or connect existing course to a product.

Adding your first course

To add your first course, go to the ‘Dashboard’ navigation item and click ‘+ New course’. Here you can edit the course overview details - title, description, thumbnail and cover image, the ‘slug’ or URL where your course will be accessible as well as which lessons are included in the products you're selling on Whop.

Adding a course

It’s important to note that the products that sell this course can only be managed in the Whop dashboard.

Create your course layout

With all your initial course information and branding added, it’s time to build out your course’s lessons and upload content. Chapters are groups of lessons - You will be able to edit both the amount of chapters and lessons your course has and additionally:

  • Reorder lessons and chapters
  • Delete lessons and chapters
  • Rename your chapters

When you want to edit and upload content to your lessons, it’s as simple as clicking into the designed lesson and adding your content. Within lessons, you may add three types of content: Video content, rich text content, and files.

We recommend using video content for the bulk of your lessons, as it is the most engaging and effective way to teach your customers.

Rich text content will allow you to style content in a way that gets your point acrossed best, and also allows for embedded images.

PDFs and other types of files can be uploaded to your lesson under the section labeled “File attachments” and will be viewable below the main content of your lesson.
