At the base of the page, you will find the Course Settings, under the General tab you can set the Maximum number of students that can enrol in the course and also note the Difficulty Level.
If you are creating a Paid course you will need to Add a Product to the Store. Give it a similar title to the course and include the price. Once created, then Select the Product from the drop-down here and enable the Paid button.
If the course is Free simply ensure the button is enabled and continue.
Under the Course Builder, you can start to create the course content. Get started by clicking “Add New Topic“. Each Topic may contain one or more lessons, quizzes and assignments.
Give your Topic a clear Name and Summary to help students identify what they expect to learn from this topic. Then click “Add Topic“.
