First, you will need to install the Elefant CMS. Once that is running, follow these steps:

1. From the root folder of the site run the following command:

php composer.phar require elefant/app-courses

This will also install the following apps that Courses depends on:

Note: You may need to add "minimum-stability": "dev" to your composer.json file in order for Composer to work correctly while Courses is still in development.

Payments: Additional payment providers can be supported by implementing the payment handler interface found here. More documentation and examples still to come.

2. Log into Elefant and run the Courses installer by navigating to Tools > Courses.

3. Add the following line to the [Hooks] section of conf/config.php to enable email notifications of comments to course instructors:

comments/add[] = courses/hook/comments

4. Go to Tools > Navigation and add the Courses page to your site tree.

You should now have a working installation.

First steps

To create courses, go to Tools > Courses. To install SCORM modules for use in your courses, go to Tools > SCORM. To view the list of courses on your site visit the /courses URL and you will see any publicly visible courses listed there.
