The On-Demand menu contains two main options. 'Your Library' and 'Courses'.
Your Library refers to your On-Demand Video Library, which you'll find if you click your library. It's divided into what are called Collections---groups of videos or PDF's.
Courses allow you to organize the order of the content into chapters.
Below is a diagram of what Collections and Courses can each contain.
So, which one is right for you?
are looking to give access to just videos or PDFs; and
don't mind if customers watch them out of order
want to allow rentals or use an on-demand subscription
may want to schedule certain video releases for later dates
then Collections are for you.
Choose Courses if you:
would like to use chronological chapters to order your content
may want to use videos, quizzes or PDFs
release these items on a regular cadence (Drip Content)
Here's a more in-depth list of what Collections and Courses can do.
Collections allow you to:
organize your videos into groups
upload videos to be accessed as rentals or subscriptions
add PDFs next to videos (like a written recipe next to a cooking video)
schedule video releases (via a 'drop' date)
add 'tags' to help customers sort by subject (and reveal insights in reporting)
view/download reporting on video view counts & active/past renters
Courses allow you to:
organize videos, pdfs and quizzes into chronological chapters
sell rental access to an entire course
schedule 'reveal' schedules for a chapter of videos (ie. 1 new video each week). These timelines begin when a course is purchased.
