CREATE ONLINE COURSES IN WEBFLOW

Step 1: Integrate Owwlish With Webflow

Owwlish is a learning management system that allows you to gate the content on your course lessons without extensive coding. It offers both free and a paid version that allows you to protect your course content, the latter helping you gate content behind a paywall. By using Owwlish, you can restrict access between and within pages to members only. This way, you can host the course content, update materials, and interact with students all in one platform.

There are other membership and subscription plug-ins or LMS you can integrate with Webflow, but Owwlish is definitely a must-try for both beginners and professionals. It’s also both affordable and user-friendly! Moreover, it grants course content creators the option of effortlessly managing their students profiles from the backend with the ability to also use Owwlish’s simple dashboard to oversee everything from the backend. But don’t take our word for it. You can get started now for free to see if Owwlish is suited to your online course operation.

After you have successfully created your online courses in Owwlish, here are easy-to-follow steps on how to integrate it with Webflow.

Log in to your Webflow site builder, locate the pages tab in the left-hand toolbar and create a new page and name it the name of your course. Hover over your course page and click on the gear icon.

You should see a settings panel. Once there, scroll to the bottom of that panel until you find Before </body> tag, on the space provided, paste the Owwlish script with the following format:

Note: To get your unique Owwlish script, reach out to Owwlish support team.

The following is the code format of the script:

<script>
    var owwlish_id = 'XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXX'; /. Client ID'/ 
    </script>
 script src="https://app.owwlish.com/integrationns/embed.js"></script>

In the format above, XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXX is the client ID we will be providing to you.

Step 2: Hosting Your Owwlish Online Course in Your Webflow Sitenline Courses

After we have successfully integrated your Owwlish account with Webflow you can now easily host your online courses.

To do this, proceed with dropping a new container on your page by dragging it from the Add Elements tab. It is recommended to add containers first as this allows you to set the margin and would put your content at the center of it.

Drop your Container in your new page and click on it, and then  you should see a new sidebar from the right. On this sidebar, click on the little gear icon to open the Settings tab of your container. Set the ID to: oww-embed-course-ID

ID in the code above stands for the course ID of your Owwlish course, which you can easily grab by going to your Owwlish courses -> specific course you would like to embed in your Webflow page and then grabbing the number at the end of the course’s URL.

Step 3: Publish Your Course Page

Once you’ve customized your URLs and set up your permissions, just preview and publish your page. Congratulations! You’ve built an online course on your Webflow site with the help of Owwlish. Your students can now easily log in and sign up for your Owwlish course through that page you’ve created!

Additional Tips for You!

Did you know that you have the option to fully customize your own CSS with Owwlish if you need to? This gives you full control on how to stylize your website and match your Owwlish course to the overlook and feel of your site’s brand. 

Need to update your Owwlish course with more lessons or need to put additional information to keep your courses relevant? You can simply make these changes on Owwlish app and any changes you make will be automatically reflected on your Webflow site!
