7 min

Are you ready to embrace the dawn of a transformative new day in your knowledge business? The New Day of LearnWorlds has arrived, bringing you a wealth of benefits for your online school.

Over the past months, our LearnWorlds team worked tirelessly to revamp our Site, Assessment, Survey, and eBook builders.

Today, we’re proud to announce a brand-new and upgraded Mobile App Builder to give you complete control and flexibility over branding, designing, and launching your school’s app.

From editing the color palette and typography to fully customizing your app’s screens by adding specific widgets and sections, you are up for an unparalleled experience!

We led the way to the mobile revolution nearly two years ago and we knew it was just the beginning. Today we stand ready to empower you with complete freedom to customize your app to match your brand, school, and business model, making you feel unstoppable.

Let’s jump into key updates to see how you can get the most out of our brand-new Mobile App Builder.

A Revamped Menu

We’ve introduced three main pillars in the menu of the Mobile App section. This will help you navigate across all the capabilities offered, while also guiding you to the specific ones you should focus on at each stage of the process :

Design
Publish
Manage
…your school’s app

Also, there is a new “Edit your app button” for easy access whenever you need to jump and update your app’s design.

Navigating with clarity means more confidence that you’re focusing on the right things.

Theme Explorer Lands on Mobile

We designed a seamless experience so you can move naturally between the platform’s different authoring environments. Whether you’re editing your site, creating an ebook, or designing an assessment for your learners, everything looks and feels consistent and on-brand.

And, of course, you can also build your app’s theme to match your unique style and branding.

With the introduction of the Theme Explorer within the Mobile App Builder, you now have the power to take control of your app’s aesthetics.

You can customize type fonts, typography sizes, app background, and text colors, giving you the freedom to create a stunning and personalized look for your app.

Complete App Design Freedom

App design goes beyond colors, logos, and visuals. The upgraded Mobile App Builder matches the evolving needs of every business, every brand, and every project.

Every screen is fully customizable as our Site Builder, so you can edit and tailor every app screen by adding ready-made template sections or widgets or even building your layout.

Here’s a sneak peek 👇

A rich pool of beautifully designed template zones awaits you to showcase your product offerings, the variety of your course categories, your school’s blog, or even give your audience accessibility touchpoints (e.g., access the downloaded or favorite course, or even check their progress).

Display your course catalog

We realize that organizing your courses can be a hassle considering the small space of a mobile screen. That’s why we have introduced a variety of course sections to list your courses any way you want.

Let’s explore some ideas below:

Popular course section sorts your courses based on popular demand
– Demonstrate free or paid course section, or organize them by category
– Make a course custom list if you want to pick a few courses yourself
– Promote a featured course by creating a zone just for it
– Increase accessibility with downloaded videos course section

The new course catalog section features 4 modern layouts and 14 different filters allowing you to showcase and promote your courses effectively.

Here are some examples of course sections you can check out 👇

Hand-pick a featured course to promote it

Let your courses stand out

Got courses in multiple categories? Then the “Course Categories” section is ideal for you.

Course Categories enables your users to find courses based on their interests quickly, navigate through a specific category, and refine their search results.
