Adding a course is simplified by way of a step-by-step wizard that guides you through the creation process. After you create your first course, you can copy its settings to build other courses.
Course: In this step, you will name your course, identify the school at which the course will be taught, and set the start and end dates for the course.
Content: Set the range of coverage for your course, indicate what level of Supersite access you expect students to have for your course, and select appropriate student learning supports for video viewing.
Gradebook: Your choices in this step will determine the layout and grade calculations within your course gradebook. You’ll begin with your course’s grading policy and create weighted categories for each portion of the grading policy. You’ll finish by customizing the settings for each category including defining its organization within the gradebook and setting the number of allowable attempts, lateness penalties, strictness settings, and the grading method (credit vs. graded) for assignments.

Summary: Review the summary of information regarding your new course, make adjustments before finalizing the course setup, and print or download a summary for your records.
