Affiliate code tracking and reporting

University Subscription Level

As an Administrator, you have access to affiliate tracking information. Your course instructors may contact you for affiliate tracking codes and reports.

Finding a user's affiliate referral code

  1. Each user in your University has an affiliate referral code assigned automatically when the user's account is created.
  2. Click on the Site Management menu at the top of your account page.
  3. Click on the People menu.
  4. Use the search function to find the user.
  5. Click on the user's detail screen to view the affiliate code.

If the user you're looking for is not in the university system, you can create a new user.

How to use an affiliate referral code

  1. Affiliates can use their affiliate referral code to be credited for student course enrollment referrals. 
  2. The affiliate referral code must be included in the enrollment link in order for the affiliate to receive credit for the referral.
  3. If an enrollment link looks like this: https://[youruniversitydomain]/courses/xxxx/enroll then the affiliate link must be attached to the end of the link, with a question mark and then the affiliate ID: https://[youruniversitydomain]/courses/xxxx/enroll?affiliate=5c38b15ff38 (as an example).
  4. Note, this is the normal enrollment URL for course number xxxx (which will appear as a course number), except that the affiliate code has been added to the end of the URL.
  5. The affiliate code can be added to the end of any of your course's URLs, including URLs to price points, to the sales pages, etc.
  6. For example, the sales page for a hypothetical course 1234 would be https://[youruniversitydomain]/courses/1234/about?affiliate=5c38b15gc98
  7. Exception: a link to a price point or coupon code for that course will be attached to the end of the link with an ampersand (&) and then the affiliate ID, like this: https://t[youruniversitydomain]/courses/1234/enroll?price_point=45&url_hash=be3c65840b3842b7319b8a7281&affiliate=5c38b15ff38
