Co-authoring

Collaborate on a course with any existing Easygenerator user or any external person invited by e-mail.

Written Olga Kuzmenko

Easygenerator provides a possibility to collaborate on a course with any existing Easygenerator user or external person invited by e-mail.

You can add co-authors from any step of the course editor. Any existing Easygenerator user or external person can be invited by e-mail. The easiest way to invite multiple co-authors is to create a CSV file with their emails and import the whole batch by clicking Import from CSV.

If you add an existing Easygenerator user, they will get an in-app invite to confirm co-authoring as well as the e-mail.

If you add a person without the Easygenerator account, they will be invited by e-mail. This person should use the same e-mail address to which the invitation is sent to register at Easygenerator.

When a co-author accepts the invite, they’ll see a shared course under the Shared courses tab.

A co-author can edit the course content and settings just the same way as the author (except for adjusting the design theme – only the course owner has the permission to do this). Any changes in the course are automatically visible to all co-authors.

NOTE: Co-authors are not allowed to delete the course, they can only stop co-authoring.

In the Manage co-authors popup, you can see all invited co-authors and their status (e.g.: pending registration/waiting for acceptance).

Statuses:

  • pending registration – an invited person doesn’t have Easygenerator account yet
  • pending acceptance – the invite has been sent and needs to be accepted

The course owner can remove co-authors. If you remove a co-author, they will not see the shared course anymore.
