What are course editions?

Do your learners have to take the same course but have different requirements based on their language skills? With course editions, Sana makes it even easier for learners to choose their preferred language when taking a course while helping admins stay organized.

How does course editions look like for a learner?

When a course edition is assigned to a learner it will appear like any other course, however, they will be automatically assigned to the language edition which matches their profile language setup. See more info on how to change your language preferences here.

If a learner would like to manually select which language they take the course in they can click on Details for the course, see below video:

💡 If a learners language does not have a corresponding course edition the default edition will be assigned
