Create sets of learning opportunities that must be done together.

Series enable you to manage professional learning occurring over multiple sessions or self-paced courses in which all the sessions should be completed. This is in contrast to other Collections, where registrants are only expected to participate in a subset of learning opportunities.

Series may be worth using if:

  • You want to ensure that staff register for every session or course

  • You want to award additional credit for staff who complete a set of learning opportunities

  • You want to make these related professional learning options more easily discoverable for staff

How to create a series

1. Start by creating a collection. From within KickUp Learning, use the actions menu to select the Create collection option.

2. Designate the collection as a series. This is the first field when creating a collection.

3. Fill out details about the Series. This will include a name and description, both of which will provide context to teachers considering the series.

4. Optionally, add credits to the series. These credits will be awarded to teachers once they complete every event or self-paced course associated with the series, and those credits will show up as a separate row in their transcript.

5. Optionally, add a seat limit and waitlist for the series. Enabling a seat limit will cap the number of staff that can register for the series. After enabling a seat limit, enter the number that represents the number of seats available.

If you want to enable a waitlist for the series, select the option to allow users to join the waitlist.

6. Save your work. You need to do this before you can start adding learning opportunities to the series.

7. Add events and self-paced courses to the series. You can do this by creating them using the Add to collection button.

Or by selecting the series in the Collection field of an existing event or self-paced course.


  • Why don't I see the option to create a series? This feature needs to be enabled for your district — please speak with your CSM to turn this on.

  • What happens if I add learning opportunities to a series after it has started? Staff members who are registered for the series will be registered automatically for the new learning opportunities, but staff who have been awarded credit for completing the series will not lose that credit.

  • What happens if I cancel or delete learning opportunities in a series? Doing this will remove the learning opportunity from the series and invalidate any attendance records. Any canceled or deleted learning opportunities won't display on the series’ Attendance tab, won't display on the Schedule tab, and won't counts toward a user’s progress toward completing a series.

  • How does this look for staff? See this article for staff views of registering for a series and joining a waitlist for a series whose registration limits have been reached.
