In this article, we'll show how to create an Event for an Instructor-led Lesson. Events are the time and place Instructor-Led learning takes place.
- Multiple Events can be created for a Lesson
- Events can include a link to join an online Event or directions to a physical location
Unlike Lessons and Courses - which are created independently of each other and then assigned as needed - Events are linked with one Instructor-Led Lesson only. The Instructor-led Lesson must be created first. View 'Create an Instructor-led Lesson' to see steps.
Watch the video and follow the steps below to see how.
Steps to create an Event
- Browse to the ‘Lesson’ area of Learn admin, and find the Instructor-led Lesson for which you need to create an Event:
- Select the Lesson Title to open the Lesson
- Select 'Event' from the Lesson Administration menu. Any Events previously created for this Lesson will be listed here:
- Select 'New’ to create a new Event for the Lesson
- Specify the start and finish time for the Event
- Enter the Code for the Event
- Enter the location at which the training will take place. Enter a URL link here (for example Teams or Zoom link) for virtual Events
- Scroll to the end of the page and select 'Submit' to create the Event

Additional settings for Events
The previous steps include all the mandatory fields required to create an Event. The below table describes the optional settings.
Comments are included in the BookingBookedUser notification, sent to Users when they book (or are booked) onto an Event. It can therefore be used to store any information the user needs to know before attending the event, such as specific joining instructions or directions to the event location. For more information about notifications, view Configuring email notifications
|A User with permission to administer the Event. Users with the appropriate LMS Role can be set as an Event administrator, and therefore have access to manage an Event. View Roles and Responsibilities for more information
|Specify an Approval procedure for any users wishing to book the Event. Choose from a selection of one and two-step authorisation processes. Where two-step authorisation is selected, a booking is not confirmed until it is approved at both stages.
|A cost code for this Event can be used in a report
|This charge is made if a user attends a learning event. This charge is used for reporting purposes
|This charge is made if a user fails to attend an Event in which they were booked to attend. This charge is used for reporting purposes.
|This is the period in which the non-attendance charge will be applied. For example, if the charge period is 2 weeks, then if a user cancels an event booking within 2 weeks of the start of the event the non-attendance charge will be applied. If they cancel the event more than 2 weeks before the start of the event, then the non-attendance charge will not be applied.
|This rebate is made if a user attends a learning event. This rebate is used for reporting purposes.
|Event is enabled
|This is a useful house-keeping exercise to remove Events from view.
|Notify each enrolled User that has not yet booked a lesson
|This refers to any users to whom a Course has been assigned, but no Event has been booked.
|Notify each User on the notification list for this Lesson
|Where no Events are available, or if no existing Events are on a suitable date, a user can select ‘Send me New dates’ to add their name to the Lesson Notification list. Select this checkbox to send a notification to Users on the Lesson notification list.
