    I want to create a course, but only one. I honestly don’t understand why I can’t create just a course without having to create an entire “school”, but I accept it that this is the way Invanto was designed.

    But if I only have one course, it kind of looks… cheesy.
    1. The user arrives to a page that has a HUGE Invanto banner on top. So it’s not my own brand, I’m advertising Invanto (a distraction to selling my course) – and on TOP of the site none the less, in a larger font than the course title. Wow. I have seen a user question on this forum asking about removing it several months ago – no reply from Invanto at all.

    2. The course page has a grey “Popular course” icon on the bottom that shows nothing, but links to the same page it is on. Why? Can this be removed?

    3. There is a login link on top of the course. Clicking on it provides no explanation as to what it is for. Is it for students? Is it for the owner of the course/admin? The login panel just say “Let’s get started” but doesn’t say started with… what? It also has a grammar error (“Please fill up the form…”).

    4. Once I log in as a student, I’m welcomed with the instructor’s profile picture filling the entire screen, pushing all content outside the visible area. So the entire browser window shows nothing but a huge, enlarged photo. This is the case for EVERY page with a student login.

    5. The grey “popular course” grey icon keeps haunting me on the bottom of every page.

    6. I see a “My quizzes” link on the left of the Student profile. I don’t intend to ever have quizzes for my course (it’s inappropriate for the types of course), so it’s useless but also kind of dumb since it only leads to a page that says “No records found”. Am I still forced to have this there? Is there any way to remove it?

    7. There is a HUGE Gravatar icon on the student page as the email I used doesn’t have one. Why am I forced to advertise Gravatar on my course page? Can this be removed?

    8. I completed 50% of the course (which is indicated by the progress bar), yet, when I return to the course, instead of any content or the place I was last, I am shown and EMPTY page with a green “Let’s get started” button. Since I already completed 50% of the course, “getting started” is inappropriate and I don’t get why you are displaying a completely blank page in this scenario instead of the next item.

    9. The “Let’s get started” button then takes me to the BEGINNING of the course… why? If the app knows I already completed 50% of the course, why does it display that fact AND takes me to the beginning? The app has the info on the student’s progress, so why does it only use it to show a progress bar, but not remember where the student is in the course?

    All in all, compared to Udemy or other course sites, the UI seems half done, maybe like an early beta, but very disappointing for a paid product. Without some major improvements, I wouldn’t even think about using Invanto in its current state to deliver a serious course as using such an amateurish UI would reflect bad on my own work. The gap between Invanto and current popular course sites/apps is HUGE. Anyone who has ever done a Udemy course would see a course as it currently presented in Invanto as a college dorm experiment at best, not a professional presentation.

    And I’m writing this more than a year after I bought Invanto – I just revisited it to see if it matured enough to be ready for use, but unfortunately, it feels like a half-cooked (or abandoned?) app.

    Since it has been a year and Invanto is still very far away from being ready for prime time, I would really like to know if there are plans to make it into a competitive product (considering what’s available in the market) that would be appropriate to deliver a professional quality course.

    Hi Robert,

    My sincere apologies for the delay. We were streamlining our Resources section to make it a go-to for all critical queries. Not sure if this is already addressed elsewhere, but let me still post a response to it here.

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

    I’ll be glad to help you out regarding your questions. To avoid confusion, I will address each one separately.

    1. The huge Invanto banner can be changed to your own brand.

    Select your site (go to CoachRack > Options > Manage school)

    On the toolbar highlighted in red, select ‘’More’’ and on the dropdown menu, select “Site Designer”

    On the Site Designer, select the ‘’customize’’ tab and select ‘’Header’’

    You’ll be taken to a list that allows you to customize your site’s header.

    Find the “Banner image” and hit the upload button beside it.
    Locate your image and you’re good to go!

    2. I’m sorry if the popular courses kept bugging you, the reason why popular courses are present at the bottom of every page is that majority of the customers create more than one course. To remove the popular course, please follow these steps:
    Select your site (go to CoachRack > Options > Manage school)

    On the toolbar highlighted in red, select ‘’More’’ and on the dropdown menu, select School details
    Go to the settings tab and turn off the “popular courses’’

    Now the popular courses won’t appear anymore!

    3. The login button is for the students, we apologize for the confusion.

    4. That depends on the theme you’re using, it can be changed into something more appropriate.
    Select your site (go to CoachRack > Options > Manage school)

    On the toolbar highlighted in red, select ‘’More’’ and on the dropdown menu, select “Site Designer”

    On the Site Designer, select the ‘’Themes’’ tab

    Hover over the rock star theme and select the “install button”
    Try logging in again as the student.

    6. By default, the quiz section is always present since most of the users offer quizzes to their students. The student can safely ignore it since it has no overall impact on the website. If you have decided to add quizzes, then the students can access them from there.

    7. The student can easily change their profile picture by following the steps below:
    When the student logs in, select the “My Profile” to go to his account settings.

    Hover the mouse over the Gravatar Icon, a word that says ‘’Edit’’ will appear. Click it and locate your file.

    Now you have successfully changed your profile picture!

    8/9. The progress bar just shows the student’s progress, it does not automatically take the student to the last page he left off.

    The student can easily locate the lesson where he last left off since the lesson he finished is ticked with a checkmark.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.

    Regards,

    Cris
