Setting Course Schema Markup in Your Content

Did you know that All in One SEO Pro lets you add Schema markup for courses?

This means that search engines can display rich snippets for your course like the example below.

In this article we’ll cover the following:

Setting the Default Schema Type for all Courses

To set the default Schema Type for your courses, click on Search Appearance in the All in One SEO menu, then click on the Content Types tab.

Search Appearance menu item on All in One SEO menu

Scroll down to the section for your courses and click on the Schema Markup tab.

Schema Markup tab under Content Types

Now select Course in the Schema Type drop down and click the Save Changes button.

For more detail on this, please see our article on Configuring Schema Settings here.

Setting the Schema Type for Individual Courses

To set the Schema Type for individual content, edit your content and scroll down to the AIOSEO Settings section, then click on the Schema tab.

Now, click the Generate Schema button to open the Schema Generator.

You’ll see the Schema Types that are available.

Click the Add Schema icon next to Course to add it.

You can now edit the schema information.

Once done, click the Add Schema button to add the schema to the post.

The Course schema has now been added to the post.

If you would like to edit any of the schema properties or delete the graph, click the Edit Schema or Delete Schema buttons in the graph card.

Configuring the Course Specific Information

When you click on Course as the Schema Type for your content, you’ll see a popup with additional fields where you can enter your course information.

Complete the fields as described below:

  • Name – Enter the name of your course. By default, this is set to your post title.
  • Description – Enter the description of your course. By default, this is set to your post content.

In the Course Provider section, you can set the following fields.

  • Name – Enter the name of the organization that runs this course.
  • URL – Enter the web address for the organization that runs this course.

You can leave all these fields blank if you have set an Organization in the Knowledge Graph settings and want to use that one.

Once you’ve completed the fields, click the Add Schema button to save them.

You can also save this as a template which you can use on other courses by clicking the Save Schema as Template button.
