Doubtlessly, course creation is a difficult process, but this article will help make your life easier as a course creator.
Graphy offers you an ‘Asset Library’ that stores all the content you have uploaded to your existing courses. The best part is you can re-use that content to create a new course without re-uploading the content.
Steps to create a course by using the items in the Asset Library
Log in to your Dashboard > Content > Courses
Now, click on the ‘Create Course’ button in the upper right corner of your screen. Fill in all the necessary details such as the ‘Title & Instructor’ of the course and then click on the ‘Submit’ button. Within a few seconds, you will get redirected to the course builder.
In order to add content to your course, you can either click on ‘Add New Chapter’ or ‘Add First Chapter’. Once you click on the ‘Add New Chapter’, a new set of options will appear on your screen.
Since you want to create a new course by using the previously uploaded items, click on the ‘Import from Asset Library’ from the options available to you.
Once you click on the ‘Import from Asset Library’, your Asset Library will open.
The library will consist of all the course material you have ever created or uploaded previously.
Now, let's understand the ‘Asset Library’
Search by Name
If you remember the name of the chapter item that you want to add to your course, type the name of that chapter item here in the ’Search Bar’. By doing this, you will be able to add that chapter item to your course.
You can type the name of the chapter item you want to add to your course in the ‘Search Bar’ and click ‘Add’.
This section is right below the ‘Search Bar’. From here you can apply multiple search filters to narrow down the chapter items in the asset library.
This section proves to be of the utmost importance especially when the number of the chapter items is high.
Here is the list of filters that you can add to your search
- Asset Type
- Date Modified
- Date Created
- Video Type
Course: This filter gives you the option to select the course from which you want to add the chapter item to your new course.

Processing Status: There are two ways of using the ‘Processing Status’ filter.
- The ‘Under Process’ option is used when you want to narrow it down to chapter items that are yet to be 100% processed.
- The ‘Complete’ option is used when you want to narrow it down to chapter items that are 100% processed.
Number of Files
Below the filters, you can see the total number of chapter items that are available in the asset library.
