Step 1 Log in and create course.

After you log in to Writer's Help, you will be taken to your dashboard. Click Create Course in the middle of the page.


Step 2 Verify your course.

You will be asked to verify that the course you are creating is for the product you intend your students to use. Some products have multiple versions, and if titles are not exactly the same, your students may not be able to access your course. Click Cancel if you need to create a different course. Click Next if you are in the correct course.


Step 3 Create your course.

If you have not created a course for this title, the following option will not appear and you may move on to Step 4.

If you do already have another course created for this title, you will be asked if you wish to base your new course on a previous course. Choose Yes if you wish to create a copy of a previous course. (For instructions on how to create course copies, see the help article How can I copy a course to use in multiple sections?.) To create a new course, choose No. Then click Next. 


Step 4 Confirm or change course information.

Fill in the course information that you would like to appear when your students register for the course. When you are finished, click Create.


Step 5 Access your course to activate it.

Your course will now appear under “My Courses” on your dashboard. To access your course, click on the course title from your dashboard.


You will see your home page. Now you are ready to activate your course. See the help article How do I activate my course to make it visible to students? for more information.
