How do I create a new course ?

If you are allowed to add new courses in the Astria LMS, you can start new courses from your  Dashboard. New courses are created as course shells which can host course content and enrollments for your institution.

When you create a course from the Dashboard, you are automatically added to the course as an instructor. No other enrollments exist in the course, though you may be able to add users to a new course. Additionally, new courses do not contain course content. In the new course, you can create new content and add existing content using the course import tool and by sharing content from an existing course.

Alternatively, you can create a new course to use as a Template. A Template is a course without student enrollments where you can create, modify, and preview course content and structure  without student interference. You can then share or import your sandbox content into live courses.

Note: If you are not able to start a course as shown in these instructions, your institution has disabled this feature. Some institutions provide courses to faculty automatically via SIS (student information system) imports. For assistance creating a new course, contact your Admin.

Once you have created your course, you will be redirected to your course Home Page.
