How to Build a Course Splash Page

This article describes how to build a splash page for a course for use in self enrollment. Course splash pages can be added to the Catalog and/or shared with learners other ways.

What is a splash page?

A splash page is designed to serve call-to-action buttons that guide action throughout the page. The splash page guides visitors from attracting their interest to making them an enrolled cohort member.

  • Increase course enrollments
  • Grow the adoption of new programs
  • Improve your ROI
  • Convert a higher percentage of your visitors into course participants
  • Helps to make the first step of establishing a relationship with your members

A splash page is designed with no distractions so that it converts learners into an enrolled cohort member. To do this, it presents specific and carefully chosen information that encourages learners to enroll in a course. The purpose of this page is to be the focusing point of your marketing campaigns and is the last step before your visitors turn into an enrolled cohort member.
