How To Create A Course On Memrise

How To Create A Course On Memrise

Memrise is a fantastic online language-learning platform that gives you the opportunity to do so much. It’s one of the most relevant language-learning apps with plenty of language-learning resources for both beginners and advanced learners.

You can use it to learn whatever target language you want to learn new language skills, and you can also use it to create your own courses and Memrise lessons.

If you want to create your own language course on Memrise but you don’t know how to, then you have come to the right place!

Below, you will find a step-by-step guide that will help learn how to create a course on Memrise, so others can start learning it as soon as possible.

As long as you follow the steps we have provided, you should have no issues in getting your course created and uploaded, and then you will know exactly how to do it in the future too.

So let’s get started! 

How To Create A Course On Memrise

Creating a course on Memrise might seem like a minefield at first, but once you know how to do it for yourself, you will see that it’s quite a simple and straightforward process. (Check out ‘Is Memrise Free?’)

Use the steps and instructions we have provided to create and bring your course to life! 

Step 1: Find The Course Creation Tab

Before we get into how to create a course, it is important to note that you cannot create a course on the app, so you will need to create it on your web browser.

Once you have loaded the website up, log in to Memrise, then head to the Discover tab which can be found on your homepage, and finally, click on “Create a course”.

Step 2: Name/Title Of Course

Once you have clicked on “Create a course” you will then be taken to a window where you will have to fill in various information fields.

The first field is the name/title field, and it is here where you can give your course a name.

Make sure that the name clearly outlines what the course will be teaching.

Keep it as concise and on-topic as possible and make sure that it is easy to read. 

Step 3: Select The Category

The next field you should take a look at is the category field.

Here you will be able to select the appropriate category that your course will fall under.

This will help others find your course a lot easier and the course will be added to a central database on Memrise. 

If you feel like you have categorized your course wrong after you have published it, then don’t worry, you will still be able to come back to your course and edit it later. 

Step 4: Add Tags

Once you have selected the appropriate category, you will then be able to add tags.

By adding tags to your course it will help others find your course a lot easier, especially when they are manually searching for a course. 

Adding tags is optional though, so it is not required to add them, but it is highly recommended if you want your course to reach more people. 

Step 5: Add A Description

Adding a description to your course is optional just like adding tags, but it is also recommended that you do add a description to your course.

Doing this will allow others to learn a bit more about your course, and it is in this description that you can really sell your course to potential students. 

You can give bits of important information about the course here and you can list key subjects that the course will cover.

You can even give a course outline which will help potential students to know what they can expect when they participate in the course. 

Also in this segment is the option to add a short description, which is a great way to give some of this information without having to go too in-depth about it.

The more information you provide about the course, the more likely you are to have people sign up. 

Step 6: Click “Create Course”

Once you are happy with the other steps and feel comfortable, all you then have to do is click “Create Course”. 

When you click “Create Course” a single level is automatically created and your course will be added to the central database for whatever your chosen category is. (See also ‘How To Keep A Memrise Course Private‘)

The column headings will also be set accordingly, but if you did not add any, the headings will remain as default headings. 

Though you can edit some of the course details later, it is important to check that everything is up-to-date and accurate in all of the fields before you post.

It’s better to have a clear and correct course uploaded because it will look more professional and people are more likely to click on it and join it. 

Why Can’t I Find The Course I Created? 

How To Create A Course On Memrise

Once you have created your course, there may be instances when you cannot find it if you go to search for it.

If you have any community courses that are listed as Incomplete or Unlisted, this might be why you can’t find them, and you will have to change them to How To Create A Course On Memrisefor them to be discoverable. 

For any course to be discoverable, you have to make sure that it is set to Public.

To check your official Memrise courses and how they are listed on the Memrise app, simply log on to your web browser and head to My Profile.

Once you have done this, go to Courses>Teaching and this will show you which of your courses are listed as public.

This section will not show you any of your Incomplete or Unlisted courses though.

To find them you have to click on your Dashboard

When you are in your dashboard, simply click on Home, and then using the filter, click “Teaching” which can be found in the top right corner.

Once you have done this you should then be able to see every single course you have created, regardless of what category it falls under. 

To make sure everyone else can see your courses, just make sure that you set them to Public

How To Add A Contributor To Your Course

Having a contributor to your course can help you better distribute and manage the workload that comes with creating and running a course.

Contributors can do lots of things, some of which include creating levels, uploading media, adding and removing media, and more. 

To add a contributor to your course, follow these steps: 

  1. Visit your course from the Dashboard
  2. Click on Edit Course which can be found in the top right corner. 
  3. Select Contributors in the tab at the top. 
  4. Add your contributors by entering their Memrise usernames. 
  5. Before you exit the course, don’t forget to click Save

The people you have added should now be classed as contributors to your course. 


Creating a course on the Memrise language learning app is quite a simple and straightforward process, but it can be quite difficult to find if you have never done it before.

Using the instructions we have provided, you should have no issues creating your own course in the future. 

If you can’t find your Memrise course, make sure that you have set it to public, and use the steps we have provided to ensure that. Good luck with your courses!
