3. Click the + button at the top to add a new Section, then select an Embed Code element. Once it appears on the page, paste the Owwlish course code from before into the Code box on the left side of the builder. Optional: Feel free to toggle off the Section Title and Description if you’d prefer.

4. Publish your site by clicking the Publish button at the top right.

NOTE: You may notice a URL Mismatch error that appears. This is only because you’re working in the Weebly builder, so it’s fine to ignore for now. Once you publish your site, the course should appear on the frontend of your website.

5. Go back to Owwlish and copy the code from the Extra Step section of the modal:

Voila! No-fuss, no need to migrate, and no extensive coding required to create online courses. All you need is one reliable LMS integrated into your site, and you just turned a section of your online store into an online school.
