Learn to schedule a new Event from scratch within SparkLearn's CMS

What is an Event?

Events are in-application webinars/conferences held in a virtual meeting room. Content managers can schedule one-time or recurring events that learners can attend from anywhere. Events can be created to stand alone or they can be added into a Course. Once created, Events can be promoted within the application based on when it's scheduled.

Once it's been created, you can view a report of who has attended, completed, bookmarked, and been recommended the Event.
