Find best-in-class content and offer it to your students through four different course creation templates.

Once you have logged in, you can begin to create course templates.

Go to Courses and choose + Create a Course or Lesson, where you will be presented with five ways to create a course. No matter which method you use, you can always share your course content with others, align courses with teaching objectives, and select additional content at any time.

  • Content does not have to align to any teaching and/or learning objectives
