The Importance of a User-Friendly Dashboard on your Kajabi Course

In the ever-changing world of online learning, creating an amazing course with top notch videos and PDFS is just the beginning. To ensure the success of your course and provide your students with the best experience, you need to pay special attention to the parts of your course they interact with. The dashboard of your course, particularly when using Kajabi, plays an important role in shaping how your students engage with your content.


In this week's blog, we'll dive into how to create this user-friendly dashboard for your students to give them the best experience. 


Why Does the Dashboard Matter?

The dashboard of your online course serves as the first impression for your students interacting with your content. An effective dashboard has the power to enhance user engagement, boost course completion rates, and foster a positive learning environment. Here's why it matters:

  1. First Impressions Count: Just as the cover of a book makes people decide to read it, the dashboard is the first point of contact for your students. An intuitive and pretty dashboard creates a positive first impression, helping learners to explore more.

  2. User Engagement: A well-organized dashboard makes it easy for students to locate and access what they need fast, reducing frustration and keeping people having a positive experience..

  3. Clear Navigation: A user-friendly dashboard simplifies navigation, allowing students to quickly find what they're looking for. Confusing layouts and lost content can lead to frustration. No one wants that!

  4. Progress Tracking: An effective dashboard allows students to track their progress easily. Clear indications of completed modules, upcoming assignments, and achievements motivate learners to stay on track. A way to improve this even further? Gamify your course! But that's a blog for another day.

  5. Time: A streamlined dashboard saves time for both you and your students. When everything is well-organized, students spend less time searching for information and more time learning.

Tips for Creating a User-Friendly Dashboard:

Now that we understand why a user-friendly dashboard is essential, let's explore some practical tips to create one for your Kajabi course:

  1. Simplicity is Key: Avoid cluttering the dashboard with too much information. Prioritize the most crucial elements and design a clean layout that's easy on the eyes.

  2. Logical Organization: Categorize your course content logically. Arrange modules, lessons, assignments, and resources in a sequential order that makes sense for the typical learning journey.

  3. Visual Appeal: Utilize visuals, such as icons and images, to make the dashboard visually appealing. Design that works with your ideal client can positively impact how students perceive the course.

  4. Mobile-Friendly Design: Ensure that your dashboard is responsive and functions seamlessly on various devices, including smartphones and tablets. What works on the desktop doesn't always work on the Kajabi app or on mobile. Some things on the dashboard don't even show up on the app. Figure out where most of your students are accessing your course from, and make adjustments as necessary. 

  5. Clear Instructions: Provide easy to understand instructions on how to navigate the dashboard and access important parts of the course.

  6. Use of Colors and Fonts: Maintain a consistent color scheme and font style throughout the dashboard. This creates a cohesive look and reinforces your branding. Your website and course should go together nicely.

  7. Progress Indicators: Incorporate progress indicators to help students track their progress. These indicators offer a sense of accomplishment and motivation to continue learning. We've all purchased a course and have felt the guilt of not finishing it. Help students avoid this feeling of guilt!

  8. Feedback and Support: Integrate ways for students to provide feedback or seek help directly from the dashboard. This enhances the user experience by addressing any concerns promptly. Maybe this is a lesson to get feedback, or access to you via email.

  9. Regular Updates: Keep your dashboard updated with new content, announcements, and improvements. An active and dynamic dashboard shows your commitment to the course and its learners.

  10. Usability Testing: Before launching your course, conduct usability testing with a small group of users. Their feedback can highlight any areas for improvement and ensure a smooth user experience.

In the world of online learning, a user-friendly dashboard can be a key piece that sets your course apart. By focusing on creating an intuitive, organized, and visually appealing dashboard on platforms like Kajabi, you're not only enhancing the learning experience but also increasing the likelihood of students finishing the course and be happy with their purchase. Remember, a well-crafted dashboard is not just a tool, but a welcome mat to your online home.
