Yes, absolutely! You'll need to get access to LaunchPad and then create a course, but it's possible to use all of a LaunchPad's resources without any students in it. Read on to learn how.
1. Follow the instructions to get access to LaunchPad
Complete the process in this article "How do I get access to LaunchPad?" to be granted access.
2. Create a course
Create a course by following the directions in this article "How to Create a New Course".
3. Once you've created your course, leave it inactive, but avail yourself of any resources you're interested in
In your dashboard, you'll notice that the course is "CLOSED" with zero students in it. When you create your course, by default, it will be inactive and closed. Just because you've created a course, doesn't mean it needs to have students in it for you to be able to take advantage of the resources within LaunchPad. You can enter the course and use it as you wish.
If you decide to open your course to students, simply activate it
If you'd like to allow students into your course, simply activate it using the information in this article "How do I activate my course? (How do I make my course available to students?))."
