Create User Generated Content

Learn how to create a new article and submit it for publication as a learner

What is User Generated Content?

User Generated Content is content that has been created by a learner rather than a content manager. Learners have the ability to create articles and submit them for review. Content managers review the articles and approve them for publication. 

User Generated Content can only be created from the Desktop application at this time.

The Review Process

  • Learners will receive an email notification when their article changes status
  • Approved content will be Published
  • Content requiring revisions will be returned to Draft
  • If the reviewer has left feedback, it can be found in the email notification or the content's revision log
