Manually Creating New Courses & Terms

Important Note

Please note that we do not recommend that you create courses or terms manually.
Instead, we recommend that you follow the Data Import process to add new courses and terms whenever possible. Data Imports (also called “dataloads”) can help you avoid common mistakes, such as creating duplicate courses or making typos for important information fields.
